    Abstract

    An estimated 50–80% of people with shoulder pain don’t seek medical attention
    for it. Despite this, shoulder pain is the third most common musculoskeletal reason for people to visit their GPs, and around 15% of these people are referred
    for physiotherapy in the three years following their initial consultations (reviewed by Linsell et al 2006). Others will consult a physiotherapist in the first
    instance. For physiotherapists, therefore, as well as sufferers and GPs among others, shoulder pain is a significant problem.
