For each participant of experimental group, the SSBM massage has been done for 10 minutes through 7 sessions pain status were measured before the massages and 24 hours after the last session, through the visual pain scale (Visual Analog Scale) for both groups, and the pain scores were compared. Statistical data analysis and analytic test(T independent, T paired) were performed.

Results: The mean score of shoulder pain before intervention was of 8.40 for both case and control groups. After the intervention, the experimental group’s pain score declined to 1.13, while no change found in control group. The mean score of hand function was 9.13 and 8.66 for experimental and control group, respectively. The difference between the two groups was significantly (95%) meaningful.
