Dr. Robert Donatelli: Rotation Before Elevation in Stiff and Painful Shoulders

One of the most important functional movements of the shoulder is active elevation. Restoring elevation in a time-efficient manner remains a challenging problem. The rehabilitation specialist needs to be a detective and figure out why a joint is not moving and/or what is causing the pain. Shoulder elevation is one of the most complicated movements in the body. If we analyze the shoulder motions, it is made up of moving parts all responsible for the functional movement patterns that the joint ...

FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF SCAPULAR DISORDERS

Alterations in scapular function are associated with shoulder pain including rotator cuff disease, instability, and adhesive capsulitis.

Thus, a systematic approach that includes scapular position, muscle performance, and movement patterns is required to best understand the role of scapular dysfunction in patients with shoulder pain. This w...
