Breast cancer survivors (BCS) are often characterized by decreased pressure pain thresholds (PPT), range of motion (ROM) and strength in and around the shoulder affected by the
treatment. This intra-rater reliability study was to establish the relative and absolute reliability
of PPT’s, active ROM and maximal isokinetic muscle strength (MIMS) of the affected shoulder in BCS with persistent pain after treatment.
Twenty-one BCS participated in the study. The PPTs of 17 locations and pain intensity were
assessed using a pressure algometer and a numeric rating scale. The ROM was measured
using a universal goniometer and MIMS was measured using an isokinetic dynamometer.
Relative reliability was estimated using intra class correlation coefficient (ICC), and absolute
reliability using standard error of measurement (SEM). Minimum detectable change (MDC)
was calculated from SEM.
The ICCs for PPTs ranged from 0.88–0.97, with SEM values ranging from 12.0 to 28.2 kPa
and MDC ranging from 33.2 to 78.2 kPa. The ICCs for ROM ranged from 0.66–0.97, with
SEM values ranging from 3.0 to 7.5˚ and MDC ranging from 8.4 to 20.8˚. Finally, ICCs for
MIMS ranged from 0.62–0.92, with SEM values ranging from 0.03 to 0.07 Nm/Kg FFM and
MDC ranging from 0.09 to 0.19 Nm/kg FFM.
The results of this study indicate that PPTs, ROM and MIMS can be measured reliably on
the affected shoulder in BCS with pain after treatment. This offer the possibility of using
these measures to assess the effectiveness of interventions in this population.||es_ES
