The rotator cuff muscles are the only ones perfectly attached for pulling the humerus without potentially pulling it out of the GH, so when, for example, the lats, teres major and pecs are up regulated (especially the first two), (or there's serious restrictions in mobility) it may force the humeral head out of centration in the GH. Poor scapular articulation may do the same. A common impingement problem is when the scapula is elevated during OHP, rather than bracing around the thorax. Up regulating the synergists and antagonists to create stability is usually the culprit of chronic tightness in the shoulder.

    I know yall cant diagnose me cause you cant evaluate me in person, but is there any test, exercise, stretch, etc that i can perform and let yall know the results that can diagnose my problem? Im heck bent on figuring this out, and between the 3 of us i think we can diagnose my problem and then come up with a plan to fix it!

    I can pull out a goniometer if needed to measure internal and external rotation if needed!


  2. The IR is almost definitely a subscap problem. However the scapula may be contributing the dysfunction. You already got good advice from braski regarding training the rtc and leveling scapula. Put a pic that shows your posture and it will be easier to give a better diagnosis. Also a pic showing position of your shoulder blades when relaxed.

  3. Good points kt:

    Id measure:
    Both arms
    Make sure u do these properly with stabilization of coracoid on IR
    IR
    ER
    Total arc of motion (ir plus er)
    Flexion

    Hawkins kennedy
    Neers impingement
    Passive er to end range for internal impingement
    Horizontal abduction to end range then full passive er
    Full can
    Bear hug test in three positions, lift off
    Apleys scratch
    Full can

    Labral testing
    O briens
    Jerk test
    Clunk test
    Anterior/post apprehensions
    Etc

    All in magee orthopedics pull up book perform tests report results, there are more you can add in

    Suspicion is an articular sided rtc pathology either rubbing or fraying on post humerus/labrum with or without concomitant posterior labral issue

  4. I have to say after the first half of this thread I had to start using Google to understand what anyone is saying here but very good info. What field do you guys work in if you don't mind me asking? I'm ready to post a pic of my posture to be diagnosed myself. Lol

    Educating yourself is incredibly important for staying healthy. So keep googling buddy!

    Aaahh that explains it. Good luck on your shoulder bro, mine is feeling better lately. I did a 4 day workout week last week and just skipped doing tris/bis to lessen the work load.

    It is I agree but these type of injuries you're not fully aware until it really happens. That's why I'm starting to learn the functionality of our shoulders in depth so I can avoid it in the future.

    Spot on, mate!

Degrees abduction Long head of triceps stretch Neuromuscular re ed of scap stabilization: this must take place before strengthening to ensure proper muscle firing sequence: Pushups with plus, horizontal abduction,scap retraction, close grip rowing Rtc strengthening: strengthening infra and supra and sub Incorporation into movement patterns: work firing sequence into common patterns you perform

    It may be hard to believe, but my shoulder is lots better in like a week in a half! Just want to thank yall for that! Ive been stretching, working my subscap, infra, and supra, also im doing the sleeper stretch and it has helped tons! Also been strengthening serratus and doing some soft tissue massage with a tennis ball! Thanks again guys! Just curious, do yall think the subscap work or the sleeper stretch has helped the most?

  10. Impossible to determine! Great to hear the news!

  11. Serratus, subscap weakness and tight ER are very common culprits. Happy to hear that you're better man
