BACKGROUND Excessive and untimely scapular dyskinesis during the throwing motion has been associated with several shoulder injuries. The scapula provides attachment for many soft tissue structures. Therefore, many have hypothesized that posterior shoulder tightness may alter proper scapular kinematics. HYPOTHESIS As posterior shoulder tightness increases,(More)
CONTEXT Posterior shoulder tightness has been associated with altered shoulder range of motion (ROM) and several pathologic entities in baseball players. This tightness is hypothesized to be the result of the cumulative stress placed on the posterior shoulder during the deceleration phase of the throwing motion. The role of the posterior shoulder static(More)
