Abstract The purpose of this randomized controlled trial was to investigate the 6-month follow-up effects of an inpatient management programme for the stroke-affected shoulder. The programme included twice daily 30-min static positional stretches of the stroke-affected shoulder and positioning of the stroke-affected upper limb using an armrest support at all other times. In total, 32 participants (17 treatment group and 15 comparison group) were recruited from an inpatient stroke rehabilitation unit. Dependent variables, including pain-free range of motion into external rotation, hemiplegic shoulder pain, motor recovery and functional independence, were measured at admission to rehabilitation, discharge from rehabilitation and at 6 months after discharge. Analysis of data was completed using linear mixed models.
