STUDY DESIGN Two-group comparison. OBJECTIVE To compare scapular kinematics during arm elevation between groups distinguished by pectoralis minor resting length. BACKGROUND Studies have demonstrated that individuals with subacromial impingement have altered scapular kinematics, such as loss of posterior tipping and increased internal rotation. One proposed mechanism for these alterations is an adaptively short pectoralis minor. This anterior scapulothoracic muscle may impact normal scapular… CONTINUE READING
