A lot of clinical methods have been developed and researched to examine scapular posture and motion, so it is time to determine the optimum methods in terms of validity, reliability and feasibility. This data synthesis informed the methods chosen for an ongoing international cohort study to determine predictors of recovery for people with shoulder pain.  We have conducted an omnibus SR with qualitative synthesis, meta-analysis and feasibility presented in the form of a gap map so that (almost) everything the literature can tell you is summarised on one chart.
