Oxford Shoulder Instability Score
When your shoulder is injured, you naturally compensate by avoiding using it or using it carefully. Is it actually getting better or are you just learning to live with it, and should you have treatment?
The Oxford Shoulder Instability Score (OSIS) is a 12 question multiple choice self-assessment questionnaire designed to measure activities of daily living and pain of people exhibiting shoulder instability. For general shoulder pain, use the other test.
The OSIS has been specifically designed to assess outcome of therapy (both surgical and non-surgical) so take it before and after treatment. This test should not be taken after surgery until at least 6 months have elapsed.
