New Research Study on Shoulder Pain: Recruits Needed!
New Physiotherapy Masters student, Donald Hunter, is currently conducting a study on the link between shoulder pain and posture. Recruits are needed between the ages for 40 and 80 years old to participate. Shoulder pain prevalence increases consistently with age, making it the third most common musculoskeletal cause for people to visit their GPs (behind neck and back pain).
Do you get SHOULDER PAIN?
Interested in being part of a University study looking at a link between shoulder impingement and posture?
You must be between 40-80 years old and not have any conditions that would normally prohibit an active assessment of your shoulder or spine. We are recruiting people with shoulder pain (experiencing at least one episode of shoulder pain per week over the last 3 months).
This University of Newcastle based project will require you to attend the School of Health Sciences Research Laboratories in the Hunter Building on one occasion to have a posture assessment, ultrasound examination, and X-ray.
