ABSTRACT
This article reports that manual-wheelchair users commonly have shoulder pain and injuries. In a study at the Human Engineering Research Laboratories, VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, investigators compared shoulder strength and muscle imbalance of people with paraplegia and individuals who are able-bodied. A secondary goal was to evaluate the impact of age and level of injury on shoulder strength. Twenty- eight manual-chair users with spinal-cord injury and 28 able-bodied individuals completed shoulder-strength testing of their arms. Muscle imbalance of the shoulder was also calculated. The researchers found no significant difference in shoulder strength of these groups. However, level of injury was related to strength. People with a lower level of paraplegia were stronger than those with higher levels.
