Acromioclavicular joint arthrosis in persons with spinal cord injury and able-bodied persons
Spinal Cord, 08/10/2012
Eriks–Hoogland I et al. – Spinal cord injury (SCI) patients presenting with shoulder pain showed similar prevalence, yet more advanced, acromioclavicular (AC) joint arthrosis than able–bodied patients. As early diagnosis of arthrosis is a prerequisite for the initiation of successful conservative interventions of shoulder deterioration, the authors recommend routine assessment of shoulder status including diagnostic imaging during check–ups.
