The underlying mechanisms for shoulder pain (SP) are still widely unknown. Previous reviews report signs of altered pain processing in SP measured using quantitative sensory testing (QST). Evidence suggests that QST might hold predictive value for SP after intervention, yet it is not known whether QST profiles can be modulated in response to different treatments. Therefore, this systematic review and meta-analysis aimed to assess if QST-parameters can be modified by interventions for patients with SP.
