Mar 14, 2023

Chris and Sam sat down with Paul Salamh to discuss his 2020 JOSPT Viewpoint titled, "It Is Time to Put Special Tests for Rotator Cuff-Related Shoulder Pain out to Pasture." Paul is a researcher, professor, and clinician at the University of Indianapolis who specializes in shoulder / upper extremity related conditions. We dive into Paul and Jeremy Lewis' decision to write this piece, identifying the most common shoulder special tests, convergent validity and reference / gold standards, imaging findings and their correlation (or lack thereof) with pain / function, and pre and post test probabilities. We then talk about the recommended examination elements for rotator cuff-related shoulder pain. Lastly, we discuss Paul’s current research project with Jeremy Lewis involving frozen shoulder.
