The one-week prevalence of overuse-related shoulder pain and activity limitation in competitive tennis players living in Toronto: a feasibility study

Tennis players place significant loads on their dominant shoulders through repeated overhead motions; as a result, the shoulder is one of the most common injured body parts for tennis players. To determine the prevalence of overuse-related shoulder pain and activity limitation in competitive Canadian tennis players, a cross-sectional study was conducted to estimate the one-week period prevalence of overuse-related shoulder in competitive tennis players living in Toronto. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the recruitment of competitive tennis players was impeded. As a result, the study focused on whether it was feasible to conduct a cross-sectional study and obtain a preliminary estimate of the prevalence of shoulder pain and activity limitation for competitive tennis players.
