Abstract: The aim of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using video instructions for performing home exercises during rehabilitation in patients with musculoskeletal shoulder pain. We will look for possible effects in treatment progress, motivation and compliance. We also aim to evaluate the possible reduction of shoulder complaints when using the video instructions (pain reduction, performing activities). As conclusions, we found that he use of video instructions for home exercises in patients with shoulder pain is feasible. Patients were very motivated to pursue a video-based rehabilitation program at home. Most patients exercised on a daily basis with an equal duration. Patients improved on specific functioning, on shoulder disability and on quality of life. Pain, self-efficacy, credibility and expectancy, scapular position and satisfaction do not demonstrate an improvement, although a positive progression can be found for pain, credibility and expectancy, pectoralis minor length, scapular motor control and scapular distance.
