Lats Pull downs That is usually the journal article where the information was first stated. Side lying ER 8. An examination consisting of visual inspection of the scapular position at rest and during dynamic humeral movements, along with the performance of objective posture measurements and scapular corrective maneuvers, will help the clinician ascertain the extent to kinler the scapula is involved in the shoulder injury.

In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. Seated Pike lift 6. Although it occurs in a large number of shoulder injuries, it appears that scapular dyskinesis is a non-specific response to a painful condition in the shoulder rather than a specific response to certain glenohumeral pathology.

Measurement should not vary more than 1 to 1. Static measurements consists 1 infera: SigelVanessa Rhule and Johnathan Fahrner. Standing cable column punches 3. The scapula serves many roles in order for proper shoulder function to occur. Dyzkinesis Snow Angels 8.


The presence or absence of scapular dyskinesis needs to be determined during the clinical examination. Current tests and measures, while proven to be reliable, have not altogether shown strong validity by demonstrating correlation with biomechanical motion, symptoms, pathology, or outcomes.

The scapula is protracted and is in anteriorly tilted position secondary to tight pec minor or short head of the biceps at the insertion to the coracoid process. Review of the normal ratio of glenohumeral GH to scapulothoracic ST motion analyzed by Doody et al [3] under three-dimensional analysis found that the ratio of GH to ST motion changes from 7.

These roles include providing synchronous scapular rotation during humeral motion, serving as a stable base for rotator cuff activation and functioning as a link in the kinetic chain. Each role is vital to proper arm function and can only occur when the anatomy around the shoulder is uncompromised. Phase I Flexibility 1.

It includes some great animations! Weakness of scapular muscles mainly serratus anterior or winging usually shows up with 5 to 10 pushups. Tspine Extension Ex 4.

Support for above mentioned tests and interventions appears below.


Toggle navigation p Physiopedia. Intervention is aimed at reducing posterior capsule [19] and pectoralis minor restriction [20] and restoring periscapular mm balance through exercises promoting early and increased serratus anterior, lower, and middle trapezius activation while minimizing upper trapezius activity.

Unfortunately, there are no validated clinical measures to identify a patient as having a tight pectoralis minor muscle. Current measures examine mm length at resting positions, not at maximal length.

Symptoms of isolated SICK scapula: Patient performs wall pushups for 15 to 20 times.
