摘要Introduction: Underlying muscle weakness may explain the inconsistency in the development of rotator cuff tendinopathy in population with similar activity levels. This systematic review aims to assess existing prospective studies to evaluate whether muscle weakness is a risk factor for the development of rotator cuff tendinopathy.
Materials and Methods: A systematic search was performed using the PRISMA guidelines. Prospective studies measuring muscle strength and the incidence of rotator cuff tendinopathy will be included. Data describing features suggestive of underlying muscle weakness, including muscle stiffness, posture, and movement patterns will also be extracted. Quality assessment was performed with the Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale.
Results: The search yielded six studies, with a total of 523 trained overhead athletes followed up for one season. Quantitative analysis of data was not possible, but risk factors were reported to be associated with the development of rotator cuff tendinopathy. Low internal rotation strength was reported in one study, low while external rotation strength and low external to internal rotation strength ratio was reported in two studies. Deficit in external rotation range of motion was also reported in one study.
Discussion and Conclusion: External rotation, internal rotation, supraspinatus weakness, and a low external rotation to internal rotation strength ratio is associated with the development of rotator cuff tendinopathy from qualitative analysis of five prospective studies. Strength deficit, or imbalance in other muscle groups and other parameters that may suggest muscle weakness, including stiffness, posture, and movement patterns are yet to be adequately investigated in existing prospective studies.
