Athletes with rotator cuff (RC) tendinopathy demonstrate an aberrant pattern of scapular motion which might relate to deficits in the scapular muscles. This study aimed to determine whether alteration in scapular kinematics is associated with deficits in the activity onset of scapular muscles. Forty-three male volleyball players (17 asymptomatic and 26 with(More)
BACKGROUND Supraspinatus tendinopathy is one of the common causes of subacromial pain syndrome (SAPS) in overhead athletes. Changes in tendon vascularity have been reported in painful tendons; however, the prevalence and distribution have not been investigated in young overhead athletes. METHODS We conducted a cross-sectional study of 47 overhead athletes(More)
Although excessive tension of the upper trapezius (UT) is thought to contribute to rotator cuff tendinopathy, no study examined UT tension in athletes with and without rotator cuff tendinopathy. Here we used UT shear modulus measured using ultrasound shear wave elastography as an index of muscle stiffness/tension. The aims of this study were twofold: 1) to(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the effect of scapular taping on the activity onset of scapular muscles and the scapular kinematics during arm elevation in volleyball players with rotator cuff (RC) tendinopathy. DESIGN Randomized placebo-controlled repeated measures METHODS: Twenty-six male volleyball players with RC tendinopathy (mean age=23.6±3.3years)(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the reduction of subacromial space (SAS) during arm abduction between overhead athletes with and without rotator cuff (RC) tendinopathy, and to explore the relationship between the strength of scapular muscles with the SAS. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. METHODS Sixty-six athletes (33 healthy and 33 with RC tendinopathy, mean(More)
