Background An understanding of the epidemiology of a problem is central to facilitating clinical understanding, resource allocation and future research priorities. Objectives To systematically review and report incidence, prevalence, risk and prognostic factors for rotator cuff tendinopathy. Methods An electronic search of MEDLINE, CiNAHL, PsychINFO to December 2012 was complemented by hand and citation-searching. Studies were selected in relation to pre-defined criteria. A narrative synthesis… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

The strength of association between psychological factors and clinical outcome in tendinopathy: A systematic review
TLDR
The overall body of the evidence after applying the GRADE criteria was low to very low certainty evidence, due to risk of bias, imprecision and indirectness found across included studies. Expand
Association of psychological variables and outcome in tendinopathy: a systematic review
TLDR
Clinicians should consider using validated screening tools for the presence of psychological variables as a part of their holistic management of tendinopathy. Expand
The association of psychological variables and outcome in tendinopathy: a systematic review Authors:
Objective: Fear, anxiety, depression, distress and catastrophisation are all factors known to affect pain and disability levels. To date, the association of such psychological factors has yet to beExpand
Platelet-rich plasma for rotator cuff tendinopathy: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Meta-analysis of selected studies showed that PRP injection was safe and effective intervention for long-term pain control and shoulder function in patients with RC disorders. Expand
Effectiveness of non-surgical interventions for rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy: A systematic review.
TLDR
Evaluated randomized clinical trials of non-surgical interventions for adults with rotator cuff calcific tendinopathy found moderate evidence for high-energy extracorporeal shockwave therapy for pain and function between 3 and 6 months, and over placebo for function in the first 6 months. Expand
Rehabilitation following rotator cuff repair: a systematic review
TLDR
Concern about early initiation of rehabilitation and introduction of gradual functional load does not appear warranted but this should be considered in a context of potential for Type II error. Expand
Incidence and prevalence of patellofemoral pain: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
High incidence and prevalence levels for patellofemoral pain are demonstrated and within the context of this, and poor long term prognosis and high disability levels, PFP should be an urgent research priority. Expand
Physiotherapists’ recommendations for examination and treatment of rotator cuff related shoulder pain: A consensus exercise
TLDR
This consensus exercise suggests specific factors in the history and physical examination that might raise the index of suspicion of Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder Pain and suggestions for non-surgical management. Expand
Psychosocial variables and presence, severity and prognosis of plantar heel pain: A systematic review of cross‐sectional and prognostic associations
TLDR
The association of psychosocial variables and plantar heel pain cannot be ruled out and clinicians should remain vigilant to their presence, given recommendations to adopt an individualized and stratified approach to other musculoskeletal conditions. Expand
Is there an association between metabolic syndrome and rotator cuff-related shoulder pain? A systematic review
TLDR
The low-moderate quality evidence included in this review suggests an association between MetS and RCRSP, and most studies demonstrated moderate quality on appraisal. Expand

TLDR
The pathoaetiology of rotator cuff failure is multifactorial and results from a combination of intrinsic, extrinsic and environmental factors, and the specialised morphology of theRotator cuff, together with the effects of stress shielding, may contribute to the development of rotators cuff tendinopathy. Expand
Rotator Cuff Disorders: A Survey of Current Uk Physiotherapy Practice
TLDR
Current physiotherapy practice in relation to rotator cuff disorders is variable, which might reflect the lack of high-quality evidence available and there is a clear need to determine the range of current practice as a basis upon which to inform future research. Expand
Natural course of nontraumatic rotator cuff tendinitis and shoulder symptoms in a working population.
TLDR
Significant movement occurs between different stages of shoulder problems and symptoms and physical findings alone appear to predict clinical case status within 1 year in a working population of active workers. Expand
Systematic review of prognostic cohort studies on shoulder disorders
TLDR
There is strong evidence that high pain intensity predicts a poorer outcome in primary care populations and that middle age (45–54) is associated with poor outcome in occupational populations and the largest number of studies were considered to be of relatively ‘high quality’. Expand
Clinical, socio-demographic and radiological predictors of short-term outcome in rotator cuff disease
TLDR
Baseline characteristics were associated with outcome after corticosteroid injection in rotator cuff disease, and Sick-leave was the best predictor of poor short-term outcome. Expand
Risk factors for incidence of rotator cuff syndrome in a large working population.
TLDR
Age was the strongest predictor for incident cases of RCS, and arm abduction was the major work-related risk factor for both genders, and Lack of social support was a predictor for RCS among men. Expand
The long-term outcome of rotator cuff tendinitis--a review study.
TLDR
The sizeable proportion of patients with chronic tendinitis resistant to conservative treatment suggests that rotator cuff tend initis is not an early self-limiting condition and improvement in management is required. Expand
841 RISK AND PROGNOSTIC FACTORS FOR NON‐SPECIFIC MUSCULOSKELETAL PAIN; A SYNTHESIS OF EVIDENCE FROM SYSTEMATIC REVIEWS CLASSIFIED INTO ICF DIMENSIONS
TLDR
A systematic review was conducted to evaluate MSP risk factors and prognostic factors, classified according to the dimensions of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, where high evidence was found for meagre social support and poor job content at work as not being risk factors for low back pain. Expand
Risk and prognostic factors for non-specific musculoskeletal pain: A synthesis of evidence from systematic reviews classified into ICF dimensions
TLDR
A systematic review of MSP risk factors and prognostic factors, classified according to the dimensions of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health, found high evidence for having fear‐avoidance beliefs and meagre social support at work and low evidence for low back pain. Expand
Lifestyle and metabolic factors in relation to shoulder pain and rotator cuff tendinitis: A population-based study
TLDR
The findings showed associations of abdominal obesity, some other metabolic factors and carotid intima-media thickness with shoulder pain, although disturbed glucose metabolism and atherosclerosis may be underlying mechanisms, although not fully supported by the findings. Expand
