Primary Trial ID Number

NCT02574000

Summary
This is an observational study to address the following questions. 1. How many people develop stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke? 2. How many people have stroke shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks after stroke? 3. Does having stroke-shoulder pain within 3 days of stroke predict the likelihood of having stroke-shoulder pain at 8-10 weeks? 4. What are the best bedside examination tests to identify stroke-shoulder pain?
Research Details
Patients will be assessed very early after stroke (within 72 hours) and followed up 8-10 weeks later. Findings will enable planning of fully-powered randomised controlled trials of both, pain-prevention strategies and treatment.
