Shoulder kinesthesia has not been extensively studied in upper extremity athletes. The purpose of this study was to determine if there were differences in threshold to detection of passive motion between dominant and nondominant shoulders of healthy overhead athletes in two positions, 0 degrees and 75 degrees of external rotation. In addition, the study attempted to determine if there was a relationship between the range of external rotation (ER) and internal rotation (IR) and the threshold to… CONTINUE READING
