  • HYPOTHESIS We hypothesized that posterior capsule thickness (PCT) would be greater on the dominant arm compared to the non-dominant arm. We also hypothesized that PCT would negatively correlate with glenohumeral internal rotation and scapular upward rotation. In addition, PCT would positively correlate with glenohumeral external rotation. However, currently PCT has not been measured nor have correlations been identified to exist with glenohumeral and scapular motion. Therefore, the purpose of… CONTINUE READING
