|概要||Posterior shoulder tightness (PST) and glenohumeral internal rotation deficit (GIRD) can contribute to shoulder |
pain. Stretching is a common intervention to resolve PST and GIRD, however it has weak evidence in the English-language
research literature. The evidence in Japanese-language research has not been explored.
Objective: This systematic review aimed to synthesise effectiveness data from English- and Japanese-language
randomised controlled trials investigating stretching interventions for PST and GIRD.
Evidence Acquisition: Seven English databases and three Japanese databases were searched until 5 December 2015.
Data was synthesised qualitatively.
Evidence Synthesis: Eight English-language and two Japanese-language papers of low to high quality were included. There
was moderate evidence for positive immediate and short-term effects of cross-body stretch on PST and GIRD. Moderate
evidence was found to suggest that active sleeper stretch might not be more effective than no intervention to improve PST and GIRD in the short term.
Conclusions: Cross-body stretch can be effective to improve PST and GIRD in asymptomatic young subjects immediately
or in the short term. Further study with methodological rigouris necessary to investigate the long-term effectiveness of
stretching interventions on PST and GIRD in symptomatic patients.
