  • shoulder
  • Effect of the Scapula Reposition Test on shoulder impingement symptoms and elevation strength in overhead athletes. (physiospot.com)
  • The objective of this study was to determine whether manually repositioning the scapula using the Scapula Reposition Test (SRT) reduces pain and increases shoulder elevation strength in athletes with and without positive signs of shoulder impingement. (physiospot.com)
  • The Scapula Reposition Test is a simple clinical test that may potentially be useful in an impairment based classification approach to shoulder problems. (physiospot.com)
  • scapular
  • Quantitative morphology of the scapula: normal variation of the superomedial scapular angle, and superior and inferior pole thickness. (springer.com)
  • How you get snapping scapula syndrome can be the result of many factors is multifactorial, and contributing factors include scapular dyskinesis also referred to as SICK scapula syndrome where wear and tear from overuse weaken the supportive tissue that hold the scapula in place. (caringmedical.com)
  • The typical physical therapy approach to snapping scapula syndrome, scapulocostal syndrome or scapulothoracic syndrome is to strengthen the serratus anterior muscle and/or put the patient through a scapular stabilization exercise program. (caringmedical.com)
  • fractures
  • Fractures of the scapula are usually the result of severe trauma, such as occurs in runover accident victims or in occupants of automobiles involved in crashes. (daviddarling.info)
  • Fortunately, most fractures of the scapula require little treatment because the muscles on the anterior and posterior surfaces adequately splint the fragments. (daviddarling.info)
  • How in the hell does a guy break his scapula (shoulder blade) without banging his head on the ground so hard that he fractures his skull? (nbcsports.com)
  • The subject population will include patients seen at participating facilities for the care of scapula fractures, who are 18 years of age or older, meet inclusion/exclusion criteria and are willing to consent. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • scapulothoracic
  • Based on treating many painful shoulders at Caring Medical over the years, the most likely cause of the majority of snapping scapula syndrome, scapulocostal syndrome, and scapulothoracic syndrome is a slipping rib. (caringmedical.com)
  • Winged scapula is an uncommon condition that affects the scapulothoracic stabilizer muscles that cause separation of the scapula from the ribcage. (scielo.br)
  • bone
  • A scapula fracture is a break in the shoulder blade bone at the back of the shoulder. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • In cases where the bone is fractured into multiple pieces or the bones are displaced considerably, then surgery may be required to fix the scapula back together using wires or pins. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
  • It begins flat at the base of the shoulder bone, ascends in distal direction to its peak at about the middle of the scapula, this peak is called tuber scapulae. (wikidoc.org)
  • Doctors in Italy recently published their findings that snapping scapula syndrome was underestimated for long time and often associated only with specific osseous (soft tissue/bone) abnormalities. (caringmedical.com)
  • Arthroscopy
  • Doctors from the Steadman Philippon Research Institute provide an assessment of Arthroscopic Treatment of Snapping Scapula Syndrome in the medical journal Arthroscopy . (caringmedical.com)
  • Nerve
  • To analyze the results from early intervention surgery in patients with the syndrome of fascial incarceration of the long thoracic nerve and consequent winged scapula. (scielo.br)
  • bones
  • The scapula, also called the shouder blade , is either of two large, roughly triangular flat bones found on either side of the upper back, and forming part of the pectoral ( shoulder ) girdle of humans and other vertebrates. (daviddarling.info)
  • Like their connected bones the scapulae are paired, with the scapula on either side of the body being roughly a mirror image of the other. (wikipedia.org)
  • In most cases, a scapula fracture is treated conservatively - without surgery - as a displacement of the bones is rare due to the muscles holding the two (or more) parts close together. (sportsinjuryclinic.net)
