Arm Intervention/treatment
Control
In this session, participants will be evaluated before and after a muscle fatigue protocol, with no intervention.
Other: Fatigue protocol
Experimental: Kinesio taping with tension
A kinesio taping technique for the deltoid muscle will be applied before fatigue protocol and removed after in the end of the evaluation session. Subjects will be evaluated before taping, after taping and after the fatigue protocol.
Other: Kinesio taping with tension
Other: Fatigue protocol
Sham Comparator: Kinesio taping without tension
A kinesio taping technique will be applied on the deltoid muscle without tension (tension is considered to be the therapeutic effect) before fatigue protocol and removed after in the end of the evaluation session. Subjects will be evaluated before taping, after taping and after the fatigue protocol.
Other: Kinesio taping without tension
Other: Fatigue protocol



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in joint repositioning angle errors [ Time Frame: Baseline (in the beginning of the session, without taping), 5 minutes after taping (or equivalent time resting, in the control session) and average of 3 minutes after fatigue protocol. ]
    The joint repositioning errors will be measured during active repositioning trials of shoulder abduction in scapular plane using an iPod app.
