- Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) [ Time Frame: One year ]The DASH is a self-report questionnaire (30 items) that measures physical function and symptoms in people with musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limb. The questionnaire can be used to assess any or all joints in the upper limb. The questionnaire records symptoms as well as activity performance. The DASH includes two optional modules relating to Work or Sports/Performing Arts. A shorter version of the DASH, the QuickDASH is available. However, the DASH provides greater precision for monitoring individual arm pain and function and hence is recommended for use in the clinical setting.
- Shoulder Pain And Disability Index (SPADI) [ Time Frame: One year ]The Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI) is a self-administered questionnaire that consists of two dimensions, one for pain and the other for functional activities. The pain dimension consists of five questions regarding the severity of an individual's pain. Functional activities are assessed with eight questions designed to measure the degree of difficulty an individual has with various activities of daily living that require upper-extremity use. The SPADI takes 5 to 10 minutes for a patient to complete and is the only reliable and valid region-specific measure for the shoulder.
- Passive and Active Range of Motion [ Time Frame: One year ]The range of motion represents the distance (linear or angular)between the proximal and distal part of target joint.
- Musculoskeletal Ultrasound [ Time Frame: One year ]Ultrasonic evaluation of coracohumeral ligament thickness, integrity of supraspinatus tendon and subdeltoid bursa
