What is the problem you are trying to solve?  

Does the left/right judgement test (LRJT) detect a difference between people with chronic shoulder pain and pain-free controls – a pilot study.

What is the hypothesis this study tested?

People with chronic shoulder pain will be slower and/or less accurate than pain-free controls at the shoulder LRJT.

What was the conclusion?

People with shoulder pain are both slower and less accurate than pain-free controls at the shoulder LRJT.

What is the clinical relevance of the work?

This pilot study provides early evidence that the shoulder LRJT can detect a difference between people with shoulder pain and pain-free controls and thus evidence for a larger more robust study, further that, the shoulder LRJT may prove useful an implicit  measure of maladaptive cortical changes in people with chronic shoulder pain
