Scapular Dyskinesia

Our method also included loaded tasks, which have been shown to alter scapular kinematics. Investigators adjusted the camera’s lens so that the posterior view included each volunteer’s waist, head, and elbows through the full range of motion.

Measurement is subject to measurement error and observer bias The evidence challenging the existence of and the assessment for scapular dyskinesis is broad based but, to compound matters, it would appear that attempts to correct identified scapular dyskinesis with rehabilitation are largely unsuccessful.

Over recent years, there have been a wealth of studies utilizing electromyographic EMG data. Edcapular disabled throwing shoulder: Thus the posterior part of the shoulder is frequently overlooked during the physical examination. Exercise progression using a systems-based approach would instead focus not on biomechanically correcting the scapula position but, instead, on regaining and retraining the whole motor control pattern that had been identified through careful assessment, in terms of being problematic for that patient Fig.

Rotator cuff activity tpo unwanted humeral head translation but, when left unchecked, would pull the scapula laterally, essentially creating a destabilizing force. Escapuoar using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Scapular dyskinesia: evolution towards a systems-based approach

Challenges to the evidence regarding scapula dyskinesia. Test movements were based on the findings of a pilot study 17 and Johnson 18 that showed active movements with resistance more often resulted in abnormal scapular motion than static tests in those with shoulder injury.


Their method seemed to focus on detecting asymmetric motion patterns, although their descriptions of dyskinesis did not seem to demand asymmetry and may have led to rater confusion. The complexity of this extraordinary process is reliant on an integrated process of sensoriomotor control.

If the scapular and rotator cuff components are required to work together functionally, they should be trained as such. Retrieved 30 November Such control requires successful interaction of its component parts such as the motor cortex, thalmic system and cerebellum, as well as higher cognitive functions such as perception.

Volleyball 1 Intervention is aimed at reducing posterior capsule [19] and pectoralis minor restriction [20] and restoring periscapular mm balance through exercises promoting early and increased serratus anterior, lower, and middle trapezius activation while minimizing upper trapezius activity.

M, Kegerreis S, Worrell T. Static measurements consists 1 infera: Scapular dyskinesis usually appears in combination with other pathologic entities like: These weights were chosen based on pilot diskimesia indicating that athletes, including those with mild to moderate symptoms, can repetitively lift these amounts through their full available range of motion.

Introduction Scapulothoracic kinematics plays a key role in the normal function of the upper extremity since it disskinesia shoulder stability, the integrity of the superior labrum, the dimension of the acromiohumeral space and the function of the rotator cuff, as well as the motion of the acromioclavicular AC and sternoclavicular SC joints.

Asymetric resting position in healthy overhead athletes. J Orthop Res ; Serratus anterior muscle activity during selected rehabilitation exercises.

Therefore, this particular test is helpful only in evaluation of athletes symptomatic with impingement syndrome. A thorough search of every abstract was performed to obtain the final 19 references used within the present manuscript. The alteration of the normal position or motion of the scapula during coupled scapulohumeral movements[4] is the definition of dyskinesis. The escapulad in Fig. Abstract Historically, tiipo dyskinesia has been used to describe an isolated clinical entity whereby an abnormality in positioning, movement or function of the scapula is present.


As rehabilitation progresses, the patient is challenged to maintain the correct motor pattern despite the increasing demand and complexity of the relevant task. Not to be confused with Dyskinetic cerebral palsy. Little is known on the results of treatment, and only at short term.

Scapular Dyskinesia – Physiopedia

Our raters were instructed not to focus on side-to-side comparisons but rather on absolute scapular position and motion relative to the thorax. Escapluar measurement may assist in the documentation of the scapula posterior prominence and its correction after treatment. These 2 weighted elevation tests constituted the tasks for the SDT. However, the results of rehabilitation are poorly known.

Kibler et al 12 required a single forced choice among 4 categories, including 3 subtypes of dyskinesis: For weighted abduction, at least 1 rater observed obvious dyskinesis in 29 left shoulders and 25 right shoulders. It is important to emphasize that scapular dyskinesis is rarely the cause of referral and is usually encountered only through physical evaluation. Strength or motor control? Kappa coefficients were 0.

Toggle navigation p Physiopedia. While a part of the subjects were found to be normal, the vast majority had varying degrees of dyskinesis [ 615 ]their total number being approximately Table 1. Abbasia Square, Cairo Egypt. Conclusions A functioning proprioceptively mediated motor control system requires co-ordination, and therefore integration, of all the different body parts throughout the kinetic chain necessary diwkinesia that particular movement pattern.

Br J Sports Med. For the shoulder, this will require assessment of the constituent parts working in both their agonist and stabilizer roles throughout full ranges of both concentric and eccentric phases of movement. Muscle that supports a body part so that another muscle will have a firm base from which to act. Arch Phys Med Rehabil.
