This study aims to develop a scoring system to screen the sub-clinical forms of rotator cuff tears and predict the tear progression. All the medical, genetic, work, and lifestyle backgrounds of individuals with rotator cuff defects (with and without symptoms) will be evaluated and a battery of manual tests and measurements will be performed to understand the predisposing risk factors for both sub-clinical and clinical manifestations. This scoring system can help health professionals to diagnose rotator cuff tears in their early stages, recognize at-risk individuals for symptom progression and implement personalized preventive strategies. As rotator cuff tears are very common in elderly, the population of Schlegel villages has been targeted for recruiting individuals with asymptomatic rotator cuff tears. With collaboration of Holland Shoulder Program in Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center, symptomatic patients with proven rotator cuff tear will also be included in this research. TO BE CONT’D
