The M-test was applied to one patient diagnosed with as impingement syndrome and one patient diagnosed with tear of supraspinatus tendon. The changes in numeral rating scale and range of motion were identified to assess the progress of the treatment. After three times treatments, In example 1, the pain decreased from 6 to 0.5 and the range of flexion and abduction increased from 150° to 180°. In example 2, the pain decreased from 6.5 to 1, and the range of shoulder flexion increased from 120° to 170°, while the range of abduction increased from 90° to 170°. Based on the above results, it would be effective to apply M-test to treat shoulder diseases in these two cases.
