Factors Affecting Shoulder Pain in Adolescents and Young Adults with Spina Bifida.
Roehrig Susan, Like Gayla.
This reseach report aims to determine whether factors affecting shoulder pain in adults with spinal cord injury also affected adolescent and young adult manual wheelchair users with spina bifida.
After studying 41 patients with spina bifida and rating their pain using the Wheelchair User's Shoulder Pain Index, it concludes that it is not as great as previously reported in adults with spinal cord injuries but increases with age.
