Abstract Kolber, MJ, Cheatham, SW, Salamh, PA, and Hanney, WJ. Characteristics of shoulder impingement in the recreational weight-training population. J Strength Cond Res 28(4): 1081–1089, 2014—Despite reports implicating subacromial impingement syndrome (SIS) as an etiologic source of shoulder pain among weight-training (WT) participants, a paucity of case-controlled evidence exists to support this premise. The purpose of this study was to determine whether WT participants present with…

Shoulder Joint and Muscle Characteristics Among Weight-Training Participants With and Without Impingement Syndrome

The impaired joint and muscle characteristics identified among WT participants with SIS are not without consequence, as they are associated with shoulder disorders in both general and athletic populations, and strength and conditioning professionals should consider risk-related adaptations associated with WT when prescribing upper-extremity exercises.

The Effect of Strength Training on Undetected Shoulder Pathology in Asymptomatic Athletes: An MRI Observational Study

The research results show that strength is associated with MRI-documented AC joint pathology, however, it appears that RT may not negatively affect other anatomical structures of the shoulder.

Ultrasound evaluation of the subacromial space in healthy subjects performing three different positions of shoulder abduction in both loaded and unloaded conditions.

The Reliability of Tensiomyography for Assessment of Muscle Function in the Healthy Population: A Systematic Review

Investigation of the reliability of TMG measurements found good to excellent absolute and interrater reliability for measuring the properties of skeletal muscles.

Prevalence and Pattern of Musculoskeletal Injuries among Recreational Weightlifters in Nnewi, Nigeria

Musculoskeletal injury is quite prevalent among recreational weightlifters with the shoulder being the most injured body parts and training multiple times a day and lack of supervision were associated with the prevalence of injury.

Isokinetic Assessment of Shoulder Joint Strength Ratios in Male Recreational Weightlifters: A Cross-Sectional Study

The results suggested that the recreational weightlifting exercises place trainees at risk of muscle imbalances and the restoration of a normal concentric abductor/adductor and external rotator/internal rotator strength ratios may decrease the risk of possible shoulder injury.

투구집단과 저항운동집단의 어깨관절 손상유형에 관한 고찰

The overhead athlete including TG and RTG has unique physical traits and adaptive changes as a result of the repetitive nature of overhead motion, and because the types of shoulder injuries are different by the motion of resistance training, the adaptation of resistanceTraining is recommended for shoulder injury prevention.

Exercise Modification Strategies to Prevent and Train Around Shoulder Pain

A summary of the literature related to shoulder pain in strength athletes is provided and strategies to reduce the risk of shoulder injuries will be addressed.

Progressive Exercise Strategies to Mitigate Shoulder Injuries Among Weight-Training Participants

A progressive approach to exercises designed to mitigate well-known joint and muscle characteristics that have been associated with shoulder disorders are presented to guide sports medicine and strength training professionals in their ability to provide an evidenceinformed upper extremity weight-training program for both patients and clients.

Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy: An Evidence-Based Overview for the Sports Medicine Professional

An overview of current TRENDS in the understanding of ROTATOR CUFF TENDINOPATHY is provided, including the underlying PATHOPHYSIOLOGY, RISK FACTORS, as well as the EVIDENCE UNDERSCORing PHARMACOLOGICAL and EXERCISE-BASED INTERVENTIONS.



Anterior shoulder instability in weight lifters

The symptoms, physical findings, and results of treatment for 23 shoulders in 20 athletes are presented, and one hundred percent of the athletes experienced posterior shoulder pain when the shoulder was placed in forced abduction and external rotation.

Isokinetic Scapular Muscle Performance in Overhead Athletes With and Without Impingement Symptoms.

Overhead athletes with impingement symptoms demonstrated strength deficits and muscular imbalance in the scapular muscles compared with uninjured athletes.

Mobility impairment, muscle imbalance, muscle weakness, scapular asymmetry and shoulder injury in elite volleyball athletes.

It is concluded that rotator muscle strength imbalance may play an important role in shoulder injuries in high-level volleyball players.

Verletzungen und Überlastungsschäden beim Bodybuilding und Powerlifting

Weight-training should be associated with a sports-related medical care and supervised by knowledgeable people, who can instruct the athletes in proper lifting techniques and protect them from injury which can result from incorrect weight-training.

Scintigraphic patterns of injury in amateur weight lifters.

Scintigraphic manifestations of several injuries, particularly around the shoulder, have a specific pattern that can enhance the performance of bone scintigraphy and have the potential to detect clinically unsuspected disease.

Muscular imbalance and shoulder pain in volleyball attackers.

Muscular balance of the shoulder girdle is very important in this sport and it is therefore imperative to include adequate stretching and muscular training programme for the prevention, as well as for therapy, of shoulder pain in volleyball attackers.

Electromyographic analysis of the deltoid and rotator cuff muscles in persons with subacromial impingement.

It is demonstrated that muscle activity in subjects with impingement is most notably decreased in the first arc of motion, and humeral head depression during the critical first portion of elevation may be insufficient in people with subacromial impingements.

Patterns of flexibility, laxity, and strength in normal shoulders and shoulders with instability and impingement

There appears to be a domi nance tendency with regard to internal rotator strength in asymptomatic individuals and Impingement syndrome and anterior instability have significant differences in both strength patterns of the rotator muscles and flexing and laxity of the shoulder.

Scapular Muscle Recruitment Patterns: Trapezius Muscle Latency with and without Impingement Symptoms

The results of this study indicate that overhand athletes with impingement symptoms show abnormal muscle recruitment timing in the trapezius muscle, and support the theory that impingements of the shoulder may be related to delayed onset of contraction in the middle and lower parts of the trazzius muscle.

Scapular muscle tests in subjects with shoulder pain and functional loss: reliability and construct validity.

In people with shoulder pain and functional loss, the intrarater reliability and error over 1 to 3 days were established using an HHD for measurement of isometric force for the assessment of scapular muscle performance.
