Background A number of instruments have been developed to measure the quality of life in patients with various conditions of the shoulder. This study aimed to construct validate a Filipino translation of the Shoulder Rating Questionnaire (SRQ) to provide physical therapists a reliable assessment tool on the functional status of patients diagnosed with shoulder conditions.
Methods This study used construct validation to test the Filipino-Translated Shoulder Rating Questionnaire among Filipino patients medically diagnosed with shoulder conditions in rehabilitation centers in NCR. Eligible participants who were diagnosed with any type of shoulder condition were included. The English version of Shoulder Rating Questionnaire was translated to Filipino and was again re-translated to English to ensure validity of each of the items cited in the questionnaire.
Results A high significance was observed between each factor after revealing Bartlett's Test of Sphericity of .000. However, when the sum of squared loading is rotated it gives a lower percentage results.
Conclusion This study aimed to construct validate the SRQ to provide Filipino physical therapists a reliable assessment tool on the functional status of patients diagnosed with shoulder conditions.
