The subjective nature of pain has made its objective evaluation rather difficult. Recently, skin impedance was reported to reflect pain. The purpose of this study was to determine the usefulness of measuring skin impedance in evaluating shoulder pain. Fifty-three patients with shoulder pain were examined. Skin impedance was measured by a skin impedance meter in three different conditions and was compared with the visual analog scale recorded at the same time.
