Brief Summary:
The study purpose is to compare the effects of Fascial Manipulation added to standard exercises protocol versus the simple exercises protocol.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Shoulder Pain Manual Therapy Other: Fascial Manipulation Other: Standard exercises protocol Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

The shoulder degenerative diseases are recurring in hospital employees. The early approach, as we see in literature, has high probability to reduce the pain and the disfunction in the long term.

In particular stretching and strengthening exercises are the standard protocol applied.

The Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy that works on the connective tissue, by increasing mobility and reducing pain.

We have added the Fascial Manipulation to prove if it make a faster recovery and a pain reduction in the short and the middle term.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Standard Group

The subjects will be treated with a standard protocol of stretching and strengthening exercises , we require them to do the exercises by themselves during five weeks, one a day.

To make sure that they will do the protocol, we'll give them a diary to sign the daily section.

Other: Standard exercises protocol
Stretching and strengthening exercises

Experimental: Intervention group
The subjects will be treated with the same protocol of the Standard Group, but in two section, they will receive a Fascial Manipulation approach.
Other: Fascial Manipulation
Fascial Manipulation is a manual therapy that focused on deep muscular fascial.
