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.
