Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to determine the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Functional Shoulder Score in Turkish patients with subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Subacromial Impingement Syndrome Other: questionnaire

Detailed Description:
The original form of the Functional Shoulder Score will be translated into Turkish by two Turkish mother tongue translators who also speak English in advanced level. Then these translations will be combined into one translation and translated back to English. The pre-final version will be composed and tested on a group of patients with SIS. If necessary, readjustments will be made, and the validity of the final version will be investigated in 116 patients with SIS. Additionally, for the test-retest reliability, 59 patients will fill out the questionnaire again after 3-7 days.

Intervention Details:
  • Other: questionnaire
    Shoulder questionnaire

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Functional Shoulder Score [ Time Frame: Baseline - within 3-7 days after the baseline ]
    The questionnaire includes 11 items: One is about shoulder pain intensity and 10 is about the shoulder function. The minimum score is 0 (worst) and the maximum score is 100 (best).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Modified Constant Murley Shoulder Score [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    100 points total score of this score consists of 15 points of pain, 20 points of daily activities, 40 points of the active range of motion, and 25 points of strength. The minimum score is 0 (worst) and the maximum score is 100 (best).

  2. American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) Society standardized shoulder assessment form [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The patient self-evaluation questionnaire includes 11 item; one is about shoulder pain intensity and 10 are about the shoulder function.The minimum score is 0 (worst) and the maximum score is 100 (best).

  3. Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand Questionnaire (DASH) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The disability level of the upper extremity is determined by 30 questions; 21 questions are about physical function, 3 questions are about social/role function and 6 questions are about the symptoms of the patient. The minimum score is 0 (best) and the maximum score is 100 (worst).

  4. Western Ontario Rotator Cuff (WORC) index [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The disease-specific questionnaire includes 21 items, 4 about physical symptoms, 4 about sport/recreation, 4 about work, 4 about lifestyle and 4 about emotions. The minimum score is 0 (worst) and the maximum score is 100 (best).

  5. Global rating scale [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The global shoulder function is graded between 0 (no use) and 10 (normal function) on a scale.
