contained concepts that were linked to categories in three ICF chapters of the body functions and structures component: sensory functions and pain (b2 neuromusculoskeletal or movement related functions (b7) and structures related to movements (s7). So far, there are no commonly accepted guidelines for functional assessment in the area of shoulder pain.

Looking at employment and leisure activities, the content of 11 of the 16 condition-specific measures was linked to remunerative employment (d850 eight to recreation and leisure (d920) and seven of the measures to both ICF categories. Your message has been sent! Scand J Rehabil Med. YR developed a search strategy and collected the data. The most wide-ranging measures, the dash and ases were linked to 23 and 16 second-level ICF categories, respectively, whereas the Constant were linked to 7 categories and the SST and the spadi to 6 categories each.

For example, a concept linked to the third-level category turning or twisting the hands or arms (d4453) was reported under the second-level hand and arm use (d445) category. Am J Phys Med Rehabil. As expected, the ICF category sensation of pain was highest ranked. The high ranking of the ICF category remunerative employment, was consistent with the high numbers reporting work-relatedness of their shoulder disorder in a previous epidemiological study. The eight categories with a frequency above 10 were, in ranked order: hand and arm use (d445 remunerative employment (d850 recreation and leisure (d920 lifting and carrying objects (d430 washing oneself (d510 dressing (d540 caring for body parts (d520) and doing housework (d640). Patient-reported shoulder pain intensity was the most frequently cited (200 citations) followed by active range of motion (170 citations Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI/MRA) (125 citations muscle strength (98 citations X-ray (81 citations passive range of motion (61 citations) and ultrasonography (57 citations). The variation in the type and number of concepts in the condition-specific measures might reflect disparate views on disability among developers of measures. YR, SO, HLS and EB-H drafted the manuscript. This is consistent with previous recommendations to regard pain as a global construct measured by pain intensity and by interference with activities.
