Detailed Description:

Shoulder pain and impairment are common in primary health care. The prognosis of several individuals consulting for a new episode of shoulder problem is surprisingly poor. The objectives are to characterize the consumption of medical care and outcome of shoulder pain and disability in primary health care.

A composite questionnaire consisting of demographic information and ASES questionnaire was used to measure the shoulder function. The patients were sent a second questionnaire after one year.
