Demographic data and disability-values and a structured Shoulder Disability Questionnaire (SDQ)28,29were collected at baseline. The SDQ contains common situations referring to the preceding 24 hours (yes/no/not applicable (i.e. not occurred)). The score is calculated by dividing the number of positive scores to the total number of applicable items subsequently multiplied by 100 (0 no disability, 100 all applicable items positive). All patients had received various types of physiotherapy including massage, heat, transcutaneous nerve stimulation and exercises, but had not been treated by a specialised physician before entering the study.
