Patients or Other Participants: Advance control during sports movements During this last stage of muscle control and strength, special attention should BE paid to integrate kinetic chain into the exercise program and implement sport-specific demands by performing plyometric and eccentric exercises, such as back push-ups, push-ups in parallel bars and on escapklar floor.

Scapular dyskinesia: evolution towards a systems-based approach

Treatment is based on rehabilitation, using numerous exercises for activating scapulothoracic muscles. Abbasia Square, Cairo Egypt. In most cases Physiopedia articles are a secondary source and so should not be used as references. Table 1 Scapular Dyskinesis Test: Trained athletic trainers and physical therapists can recognize and distinguish between abnormal scapular movement patterns and normal patterns in young, athletically active adults.

The ratings of flexion and abduction motions were combined such that if both motions were rated normal or 1 was judged normal and the other, subtle dyskinesis, the final rating was normal; if both were judged as subtle dyskinesis, the final rating was subtle dyskinesis; and if either test motion was rated obvious dyskinesis, the rating was obvious dyskinesis. Retrieved from ” https: Over the last decade, there has been a gradual move in the assessment of musculoskeletal conditions from the limited value of the traditional orthopaedic test toward a more global, systems-based approach.


When the throat muscles are involved, this type of dystonia is called an acute laryngospasm and is a medical emergency because it can impair breathing. Studies investigating the relationship between neck pain and scapular dysfunction have only recently begun to emerge[17].

Scapular dyskinesis: Diagnosis and treatment

The effect of long versus short pectoralis minor resting length on scapular kinematics in healthy individuals. Similarly, the dyskinesis may not become apparent until the task becomes more complicated and involves co-ordination with the wider chain.

Given their interdependence, a thorough assessment of the rotator cuff should also be conducted Fig. Therefore, this particular test is helpful only in evaluation of athletes symptomatic with impingement syndrome.

A Clinical Method for Identifying Scapular Dyskinesis, Part 1: Reliability

Scapulothoracic kinematics plays a key role in the normal function of the upper extremity since it affects shoulder stability, the integrity of the superior labrum, the dimension of the acromiohumeral space and the function of diskinesiq rotator cuff, as well as the motion of the acromioclavicular AC and sternoclavicular SC escalular.

Tate, PhD, PT, contributed to conception and design; acquisition and analysis and interpretation of the data; and drafting, critical revision, and final approval of the article.

Scapular positioning in patients with shoulder dlskinesia Swimmers on the other hand should focus on core stability exercises doing exercises such as W-V exercises, in which the patient is prone on a Swiss ball and perform movements, forming a W and a V with his arms[18]. It is perhaps time to evolve our thinking and move towards a systems-based approach.

Thirty-one athletes were females and were males, with 93 competing at the Division I level and 49 at the Division III level. There are also variations of scapular movement within individuals depending on the speed at didkinesia movement is performed, 8 the load used, 9 whether movement is concentric or eccentric 10 and is performed unilaterally or bilaterally 11 or even the hand dominance of the subject.


Scapular Dyskinesia

The SAT increases the acromiohumeral space and is helpful in detecting the scapular contribution to impingement and rotator cuff dysfunction. Scapular-focused treatment in patients with shoulder impingement syndrome: In a study [ 11 ]a digital inclinometer was used to measure the forward scapular posture in dkskinesia players. Trapezius diskinesa timing during selected shoulder rehabilitation exercises.

Tennis 15 Glenohumeral external rotation exercises, for example, are classically regarded as working the rotator cuff in its agonist role. With this knowledge and armed with some clinical reasoning, creativity and often trial and error, it should be possible to find at least one exercise that a patient can leave with, empowered by the knowledge that they can affect their own symptoms with movement. Scapulohumeral rhythm SHR is the co-ordination between humeral and scapular movements and was first described by Codman 2 and subsequently popularized by Inman.

A, The scapular motion pattern was rated as normal. M, Kegerreis S, Worrell T.

The exercises pictured in Fig. This population was selected because of the high incidence of shoulder injury reported among athletes participating in sports requiring overhead use of the arm.
