Matrix metalloproteinase, tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase and transforming growth factor-beta 1 in frozen shoulder, and their changes as response to intensive stretching and supervised neglect exercise.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Frozen shoulder is characterized with thickening and contracture of joint capsular. The mechanism of this disorder is not yet clear, however, some proteins have been related to frozen shoulder. This study was to compare the serum levels of proteins related to frozen shoulder, such as matrix metalloproteinase (MMP), tissue inhibitor of… (More)
