  • Clustering signs and symptoms to diagnose rotator cuff pathology

    Subacromial impingement (SAI) and rotator cuff (RTC) tears are a common cause of pain and disability of the shoulder and may be both traumatic and non-traumatic in origin. It has been reported that 20–30% of individuals between 60 and 80 years old will present with a RTC tear (1,2). Because of the high prevalence, it is crucial that we understand the best clustering of signs and symptoms to accurately identify when injury to the RTC has occurred. This review assesses the best clustering to screen for this pathology.

  • Do symptoms of pain predict rotator cuff tear severity?

    As we are learning more about the complexity of pain, we are beginning to better understand that the degree of injury does not always relate to the degree of pain. The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as ‘an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage’. This definition highlights the variability of a painful experience and indicates pain may be a result of actual or potential tissue damage. A recent article published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery sought out to determine if pain levels are related to the severity of rotator cuff pathology (1).

  • Shoulder Impingement for Massage Therapists

    Impingement accounts for up to 65% of all shoulder pain, and yet studies have been unable to determine the precise structure which is at fault. This article uses an evidence-based approach to guide clinical practice by looking at anatomy, pathology and function of the shoulder region. By understanding how to optimise shoulder function, treatment of several body regions can be combined to address impingement problems. A number of hands-on manual therapy techniques are described for the initial management of shoulder impingement problems.

  • Shoulder Impingement: Diagnosis, Treatment and Rehabilitation for Physical Therapists

    Impingement accounts for up to 65% of all shoulder pain, and yet studies have been unable to determine the precise structure which is at fault. This article uses an evidence based approach to guide clinical practice by looking at anatomy, pathology and function of the shoulder region. By understanding how to optimise shoulder function, treatment of several body regions can be combined to address impingement problems. Rehabilitation is used to target compensatory movements and re-establish optimal shoulder function, and the practitioner is guided through a rehab programme which can be applied to patients immediately.
