Condition

Musculoskeletal Diseases: Shoulder disorders

Intervention

Participants will have their grip strength assessed, and dexterity measured via the 9-hole peg test. They will then be randomised to receive treatment (Tubigrip) or nothing, and asked to rest for 30 minutes. Following a 30-min rest, they will be asked to repeat these tests in front of a second assessor, who is blinded to whether they have received the treatment or not. Both groups will be asked to keep a symptom diary for 14 days.
