Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The dynamic taping group (5cm, Dynamic Tape Eco® ): a single session of dynamic taping by a physiotherapist. First, patients will be asked to relax their forearm on a table with slight shoulder flexion and abduction, keep the scapula in an upward rotated and posteriorly tilted position. The middle 10cm of the first tape will be used as the anchor and it will be placed on the distal 1/3 humerus. The posterior part of the tape will be spiral to the medial side and go straight up along the humerus, cover the anterior side of the glenohumeral joint, then go to the back, follow the direction of lower trapezius muscle fiber and finish at the area of T10-T12. Patients will be asked to keep the scapula in the same position then flex the shoulder to 90 degrees. The anterior part of the tape will be spiral up along the humerus and cover the anterior side of the glenohumeral joint, then finish in the pectoral area.
Before the physiotherapist applies the second and the third tapes, patients will be asked to go back to the starting position, the second tape will start on anterior deltoid, then go up posteriorly and cover the AC joint, finish in the cervicothoracic junction. The third tape will start on posterior deltoid, then go up anteriorly and cover the AC joint, finish on the medial third of the clavicle.
The taping will be taken off after the post-test.
Two taping conditions will occur on the same day and there will be a 15-minutes interval between two conditions.

Rehabilitation
Comparator / control treatment
The rigid tape group (3.8cm, Leukotape®, and 5cm, hypafix tape):
a single session of rigid taping by a physiotherapist. Patients will be asked to relax their forearms on a table with slight shoulder flexion and abduction, keep the scapula in an upward rotated and posteriorly tilted position. The first tape will start on anterior deltoid, then go up posteriorly and cover the AC joint, finish on the cervicothoracic junction. The second tape will start on posterior deltoid, then go up anteriorly and cover the AC joint, finish on the medial third of the clavicle. The third tape will start on the coracoid process, cover the anterior side of the glenohumeral joint and go back to the midline, finish at the area of T10-T12.
The taping will be taken off after the post-test.
Two taping conditions will occur on the same day and there will be a 15-minutes interval between two conditions.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 305731 0
Primary outcome 1: Pain intensity assessed by a numeric rating scale (NRS).
Timepoint [1] 305731 0
Baseline, immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping. Timepoint of during sports activity will be added.
Primary outcome [2] 305732 0
Primary outcome 2: Anterior displacement of the humeral head assessed by a laser displacement sensor (OD max 350-100T1, SICK Taiwan Co., Ltd, Taipei, Taiwan) and a Hand-held dynamometer (MicroFET 2TM, MicroFET, Draper, UT, USA). This is a composite outcome
Timepoint [2] 305732 0
Baseline, immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping
Primary outcome [3] 305733 0
Primary outcome 3: Tape comfort and restriction assessed by a self-designed questionnaire, including subjective comfort and restriction in resting, during movement and during exercising after taping, this is a composite outcome
Timepoint [3] 305733 0
Immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping
Secondary outcome [1] 346302 0
Secondary outcome 1: dynamic anterior displacement of the humeral head will be assessed by the Kinetic Medial Rotation Test (KMRT) of the shoulder. A laser sensor instrument will be used to quantify the change of distance after taping.
Timepoint [1] 346302 0
Baseline, immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping
Secondary outcome [2] 346303 0
Secondary Outcome 2:Perceived improvement will be assessed by the global rating of change scale (GROC)
Timepoint [2] 346303 0
Immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping
Secondary outcome [3] 346304 0
Secondary Outcome 3: Shoulder abduction range of motion will be assessed by a universal goniometer.
Timepoint [3] 346304 0
Baseline, immediately after dynamic taping and immediately after rigid taping
Secondary outcome [4] 346727 0
Secondary Outcome 4: Shoulder flexion range of motion will be assessed by a universal goniometer.
Timepoint [4] 346727 0
