Observational Study of Hemiplegic Shoulder Pain After Recent Stroke

2015-10-14 11:38:22 | BioPortfolio


This is an observational study to address the following questions.

1. How many people develop stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke?

2. How many people have stroke shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks after stroke?

3. Does having stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke predict the likelihood of having stroke-shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks?

4. What are the best bedside examination tests to identify stroke-shoulder pain?


Patients will be assessed very early after stroke (within 72 hours) and followed up 8-10 weeks later. Findings will enable planning of fully-powered randomised controlled trials of both, pain-prevention strategies and treatment.
