Background: Implementation of overhead activity, a key component of many professional sports, requires an effective and balanced activation of the shoulder girdle muscles, particularly during forceful external rotation (ER) motions. Purpose: To identify activation strategies of 16 shoulder girdle muscles/muscle segments during common shoulder ER exercises. Study Design: Descriptive laboratory study. Method: Thirty healthy subjects were included in this study, and 16 shoulder girdle muscles… 
Regional Electromyography of the Infraspinatus and Supraspinatus Muscles During Standing Isometric External Rotation Exercises.
BACKGROUND Whole-muscle electromyography (EMG) data of the rotator cuff support external rotation (ER) strengthening exercises during shoulder rehabilitation. However, distinct neuroanatomic regions
Muscle recruitment during plyometric exercises in overhead athletes with and without shoulder pain.
TLDR
A significant higher muscle activity was found in the shoulder pain group for MT together with an overall significant higher activity in the thoraco-humeral and abdominal muscles compared to healthy controls.
Isometric Contraction of Scapular Muscles Activities during HorizontalAbduction and Adduction of the Shoulder
TLDR
Most scapular muscles engage during isometric contraction, and the high activating muscles were changed by the direction of shoulder movement.
Electromyographic Evaluation of Early-Stage Shoulder Rehabilitation Exercises Following Rotator Cuff Repair
Background Electromyography (EMG) is frequently used as a guide for exercise rehabilitation progression following rotator cuff repair. Knowledge of EMG activity during passive and active-assisted
A comparative study on the recruitment of shoulder stabilizing muscles and types of exercises
TLDR
The PNF method promotes a greater recruitment of the shoulder dynamic stabilizing muscles during diagonal elevation exercises and such kinesiotherapeutic technique may be effectively used in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of shoulder disorders.
Patterns of muscle coordination during dynamic glenohumeral joint elevation: An EMG study
TLDR
It is proposed that by appreciating the sophistication of normal shoulder function targeted evidence-based rehabilitation strategies for conditions such as subacromial impingement syndrome or shoulder instability can be developed.
The infraspinatus muscle activity during pitching motion in baseball players with shoulder instability
TLDR
This study shows that baseball pitchers with slipping phenomenon have capsular laxity and scapular instability that indicate high infraspinatus muscle activity during the acceleration phase, which may cause fatigue and dysfunction.
Maximizing Muscle Function in Cuff-Deficient Shoulders: A Rehabilitation Proposal for Reverse Arthroplasty
TLDR
Improving the efficiency of deltoid function before and after reverse shoulder arthroplasty is a key factor in the rehabilitation of the cuff deficient shoulders.
Shoulder rehabilitation exercises with kinematic biofeedback after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair: proposal for treatment (Preprint)
UNSTRUCTURED Background: The recovery of scapular and gleno-humeral physiological kinematic parameters, as well as sensorimotor control of movement, plays a primary role in the rehabilitation
Effects of Kinesiology Taping on Shoulder Posture and Peak Torque in Junior Baseball Players with Rounded Shoulder Posture: A Pilot Study
TLDR
It is suggested that RST could help to correct RSP and improve peak torque of external and internal rotation of the shoulders of junior baseball players with RSP.

Shoulder Muscle Recruitment Patterns During Commonly Used Rotator Cuff Exercises: An Electromyographic Study
TLDR
The results indicate that, in people who are healthy, the motor strategy used to deal with increasing rotation resistance with the arm in a pendant position is to gradually increase activity in all shoulder rotation torque-generating muscles.
A kinematic and electromyographic study of shoulder rehabilitation exercises.
TLDR
Supine Phase I exercises should be considered in the early postoperative period after shoulder surgery to achieve maximum motion while minimizing shoulder muscle activity.
Electromyographic analysis of the supraspinatus and deltoid muscles during 3 common rehabilitation exercises.
TLDR
While all 3 exercises produced similar amounts of supraspinatus activity, the full-can exercise produced significantly less activity of the deltoid muscles and may be the optimal position to recruit the suprspinatus muscle for rehabilitation and testing.
Electromyographic analysis of the rotator cuff and deltoid musculature during common shoulder external rotation exercises.
TLDR
This study quantifies electromyographic muscle activity of the infraspinatus, teres minor, suprasp inatus, posterior deltoid, and middle deltoids during exercises commonly used to strengthen the shoulder external rotators to develop rehabilitation programs.
EMG analysis of the scapular muscles during a shoulder rehabilitation program
TLDR
A group of 4 exercises was shown to make up the core of a scapular muscle strengthening program, including scaption, row ing, push-up with a plus, and press-up.
Muscle activity and coordination in the normal shoulder. An electromyographic study.
Muscle activity and coordination in ten shoulders were studied in five healthy subjects using electromyography (EMG) recorded during standardized loaded movements, i.e., flexion, extension,
Rotator cuff muscles perform different functional roles during shoulder external rotation exercises
TLDR
The results indicate that increasing support load requirements during an external rotation task may be a functionally specific way to retrain the stabilization function of axioscapular muscles and investigates the differential contribution of muscles to joint movement and stabilization during a given task.
The rotator cuff muscles are activated at low levels during shoulder adduction: an experimental study.
TLDR
Since isometric adduction in normal subjects does not produce moderate to high activation levels in any of the rotator cuff muscles tested, these results do not support the use of shoulder adduction to identify rotators cuff muscle dysfunction or strengthen the rotATOR cuff muscles.
Electromyographic activity in the immobilized shoulder girdle musculature during contralateral upper limb movements.
TLDR
The findings suggest that immobilized shoulder girdle muscle EMG activity during quiet standing is negligible in asymptomatic individuals; contralateral upper limb motions at self-selected speeds are not likely to be harmful to healing tissues; and cross-body, straightforward, or downward reaches at either a slow or fast speed may be appropriately prescribed as rehabilitative exercises that can be initiated while the shoulder remains immobilized.
Electromyographic Recordings in Shoulder Muscles During Eccentric Movements
TLDR
Results showed that the magnitude of activation was significantly lower during eccentric movements in normal subjects and in patients with joint laxity, which might indicate a greater necessity for muscular activity to provide anterior shoulder stability in lax joints.
