BACKGROUND shoulder impairments are often associated with altered scapular kinematics. As muscles control scapular movement, functionally altering muscle performance through fatigue may produce scapular kinematics that mimic those of injured patients. The aim of this study was to examine if changes in scapular tilt, rotation and pro/retraction following two different upper extremity fatiguing protocols have any implications with respect to subacromial impingement. METHODS scapular orientation… CONTINUE READING
