Abstract To determine the prevalence of shoulder pain and to identify factors associated with shoulder pain in a nationwide survey of individuals living with spinal cord injury (SCI) in Switzerland.; Data was collected through the 2012 community survey of the Swiss SCI Cohort Study (SwiSCI) (N = 1549; age 52.3 ± 14.8; 29% female). Sociodemographic and socioeconomic circumstances, SCI characteristics, health conditions as well as mobility independence and sporting activities were evaluated as predictor variables. Analyses were adjusted for item non-response (using multiple imputation) and unit-nonresponse (using inverse probability weighting).; The adjusted prevalence of shoulder pain was 35.8% (95% CI: 33.4-38.3). Multivariable regression analysis revealed higher odds of shoulder pain in females as compared to males (odds ratio: 1.89; 95% CI: 1.44-2.47), and when spasticity (1.36; 1.00-1.85) and contractures (2.47; 1.91-3.19) were apparent. Individuals with complete paraplegia (1.62; 1.13-2.32) or any tetraplegia (complete: 1.63; 1.01-2.62; incomplete: 1.82; 1.30-2.56) showed higher odds of shoulder pain compared to those with incomplete paraplegia.; This survey revealed a high prevalence of shoulder pain. Sex, SCI severity, and specific health conditions were associated with having shoulder pain. Implications for rehabilitation Individuals with spinal cord injury have a high prevalence of shoulder pain. Females, individuals with complete paraplegia or any tetraplegia and individuals with contractures and spasticity should receive considerable attention in rehabilitation programmes due to their increased odds of having shoulder pain.
