To accurately compare electromyographic data from different muscles and different subjects, it is necessary to normalize the integrated data obtained from each muscle. The purpose of this study was to identify the manual muscle testing positions that elicit maximal neural activation (integrated electromyography) of three rotator cuff muscles (supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and subscapularis) and five shoulder synergists (pectoralis major, latissimus dorsi, and anterior, middle, and posterior… CONTINUE READING
