Abstract: This systematic literature review evaluated the current evidence for occupational therapy interventions that address pain reduction and increase participation in functional activities in adults with musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder. Seventy-six studies were reviewed for this study: 67 of Level I evidence, 7 of Level II evidence, and 2 of Level III evidence. The articles were reviewed according to their quality (scientific rigor and lack of bias) and levels of evidence. Strong evidence was found that range of motion exercises, strengthening exercises, and joint mobilizations can improve function and decrease pain. The evidence to support physical modalities is moderate to mixed, depending on the shoulder disorder. Occupational therapy practitioners can use this evidence to guide daily clinical decision making.
