In vivo 3-dimensional analysis of scapular and glenohumeral kinematics: comparison of symptomatic or asymptomatic shoulders with rotator cuff tears and healthy shoulders.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Alteration in shoulder kinematics has been suggested as one cause of symptoms in shoulders with rotator cuff tears (RCTs). However, only a few studies comparing symptomatic and asymptomatic RCTs using kinematic analysis have been performed. The purpose of this study was to compare 3-dimensional (3D) scapular and glenohumeral kinematics during… (More)
