1. Citation: Sanchis, M. N., Lluch, E., Nijs, J., Struyf, F., & Kangasperko, M. (2015). The role of central sensitization in shoulder pain: A systematic literature review. Seminars in Arthritis and Rheumatism, 44(6), 710-716. doi:10.1016/j.semarthrit.2014.11.002

Abstract: Evaluates the evidence for the presence of central sensitization in patients with unilateral shoulder pain of different etiologies, including those with chronic subacromial impingement syndrome. Studies addressing neuropathic pain were not considered. Based on 10 cross-sectional (case-control) or longitudinal studies finds that different subjective and objective parameters, considered manifestations of central sensitization, are established in these patients. Suggests that, although peripheral mechanisms are involved, hypersensitivity of the central nervous system plays a role in a subgroup within the shoulder pain population.
