ACEITUNO-GOMEZ, Javier et al. Health-related quality of life in patients diagnosed with subacromial syndrome in the Talavera Integrated Area. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2019, vol.93, e201910094.  Epub 07-Sep-2020. ISSN 2173-9110.


There is a high prevalence of subacromial syndrome among patients with shoulder pathology, where the pain and tendency to chronification are some of its most important characteristics. This is why it is necessary to objectively interact with the quality of life of the subject. The main goal was to determine if there are differences between subacromial patients and asymptomatic patients regarding quality of life.


Transversal study carried out in the Talavera Integrated Area during the months of November 2016 to March 2017. Participated a total of 92 subjects, 46 were symptomatic mating by age and sex with an asymptomatic sample and without joint pathology of the same size and health area. In both cases, the EQ-5D questionnaire was administered. The prevalence was calculated from the waiting list of traumatology physiotherapy in the year 2015. The SPSS statistical program was used, applying the T-test and the chi-square.


The EQ-5D questionnaire obtained a standardized mean of 0.70 in the subacromial syndrome and 0.85 in the asymptomatic population (P=0,0001). The prevalence of impingement subacromial within shoulder pathology was 39.19%.


Subacromial syndrome has a high prevalence within the shoulder pathology in the Rehabilitation Service and significantly interferes in the quality of life related to the health of the subject.
