Objective measurement of shoulder internal and external rotation strength is an important part in the comprehensive evaluation and rehabilitation of athletes who perform predominantly unilateral upper extremity movement patterns. Apparatus- and population-specific descriptive data are needed to enhance the interpretation of results from isokinetic(More)
Injuries to the ulnar collateral ligament frequently occur in throwing athletes because of large, repetitive valgus stresses to the elbow during the cocking and acceleration phases of throwing. Identification of injury to this ligament is important in evaluating the throwing elbow. The purpose of this study was to determine whether differences in medial(More)

Clinical evaluation of humeral head translation relies mainly on manual tests to measure laxity in the human shoulder. The purposes of this study were to determine whether side-to-side differences exist in anterior humeral head translation in professional baseball pitchers, to compare manual laxity testing with stress radiography for quantifying humeral(More)
STUDY DESIGN Single-session, posttest only, descriptive analysis of range of motion (ROM) and strength. OBJECTIVES To measure ROM and strength approximately 12 weeks following arthroscopic anterior stabilization of the glenohumeral joint with thermal capsulorraphy. BACKGROUND Treatment of the patient with anterior, unidirectional glenohumeral joint(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the intrarater and interrater reliability of a manual anterior humeral head translation test. Fifteen subjects were positioned lying in a supine position with their identity shielded from examiners. A standard manual anterior humeral head translation test was performed and repeated with the glenohumeral joint in 90(More)
Lower extremity problems in the runner are common and often perplexing. Although many problems such as acute tendinitis and mild sprains can be treated with short periods of rest and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, some will be chronic or recurrent in nature. These persistent problems can cause even a serious runner to reduce his activity greatly or(More)
