Abstract

Objective: Droopy shoulder syndrome [DSS] is classified as a small subgroup of disputed neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome and characterized by drooping of the shoulders which leads to traction on the brachial plexus. The effect of exercise seems controversial in DSS. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of exercise both on clinical and radiological outcome in DSS.
