- The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand Outcome Measure [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (6 months) ]The DASH Outcome Measure is a 30-item, self-report questionnaire designed to measure physical function and symptoms in people with any of several musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb. Scores are transformed to a 0-100 scale, with a higher value indicating greater disability. The change in DASH (delta) over those 6 months was recorded.
- Visual Analog Scale for Pain [ Time Frame: 26 weeks (6 months) ]The visual analog scale for pain (VAS) is a test requiring a patient to indicate along a line how much pain they are experiencing between 0-100. A score of 100 indicates the maximum possible pain level and a score of 0 indicates no pain. Scores are recorded as whole number integers. The change in VAS (delta) over those 6 months was recorded.
