Shoulder pain is the most common symptom of physical dysfunction in wheelchair basketball players. About the 85% of this population had shoulder pain in some moment of their life. Some studies suggest that exercise is an important tool as an element to treat and prevent shoulder injuries. For that reason, an intervention program would be a useful tool for prevent shoulder injuries in this population.
The purpose of this study is determine the effects of therapeutic exercise program wheelchair basketball players, in order to prevent shoulder injuries.

Experimental: Exercise group
Wheelchair basketball players participating in home therapeutic exercise program that use the protocol of postural hygiene.
Behavioral: Exercise group
This group will receive a home exercise program of shoulder based on mobility, strength and strengthening exercises, lasting 10 weeks, 3 times per weeks. The target dose use for mobility consisted in 8 repetitions for each 4 movements, for strengthening using resistive bands, 3 sets (including 5 exercises) of 10 repetitions with a 45 second rest between sets and 5 repetitions for each 5 strength with a 30 second rest and general protocol of postural hygiene. The instructional of the program is 30 minutes each day during the time of the study (10 weeks) with a screening about the exercise program and the daily activities performed every 4 weeks. Physiotherapist provided support to subjects through email along 10 weeks.
No Intervention: Control group
Wheelchair basketball players that not participate in home therapeutic exercise program and use a protocol of postural hygiene provided.
- Change from baseline shoulder pain at 10 weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]The presence of shoulder pain will be measured at the beginning and at 10 weeks with "Shoulder Pain Index for Wheelchair Basketball (SPI-WB)" (submitting).
- Neer test [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]Neer's Test assesses for possible rotator cuff impingement. Pain is a positive test.
- Hawkins-Kennedy test [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]Hawkins-Kennedy`s test indicative a possible impingement between the greater tuberosity of the humerus against the coraco- humeral ligament.
- Jobe test [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]Jobe`s test assesses for possible supraspinatus weakness and/or impingement.
- Patte test [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]Patte`s test measure for possible infraspinatus and teres minor weakness and/or impingement.
- Shoulder range of motion [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 10 weeks ]The range of motion will be evaluated in flexion, extension, internal rotation, external rotation and abduction with a goniometric at the beginning and at 10 weeks.
- Players´ adherence to the exercise program [ Time Frame: At 4 and 8 weeks ]Players will complete a questionnaire rating their adherence to the exercise program.
- Players´ self-efficacy to the exercise program [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Players will complete a questionnaire about the self-efficacy according to the exercise program.
- Players adherence to the protocol of postural hygiene. [ Time Frame: At 4 and 8 weeks ]Players will complete a follow-up questionnaire rating their adherence to the protocol of postural hygiene.
- Activities performed outside of the training and exercise program. [ Time Frame: At 4 and 8 weeks ]Players will be complete a follow-up questionnaire about the activities performed outside of the training and exercise program.
