Ligaments of shoulder joint:
A-C ligament-sup and inf reinforce the
 joint capsule and prevent post
 dislocation of the clavicle
G-H ligaments-originate from labrum
 and attach to lesser tubercle and anat
 neck (reinforce capsule) sup, mid and
 inf bands
Coracoclavicular lig.- lat(trapezoid) and
 med(conoid) Both prevent backward
 mvmt of the scapula and ind they limit
 scap rotation

Rotator Cuff Problems
Rotator Cuff Impingement
Rotator Cuff Tear (RCT)
Phase 1 (0 to 6 weeks)    • Passive range of motion
                            exercises only for almost
                            all tears.
                          • Active-assisted range of
                            motion for very small
                            tears or repairs with
                            exceptionally good tissue

                          • Full passive motion
                          • Begin active-assisted
Phase 2 (6 to 12 weeks)   • Strengthen intact cuff
                          • Begin to strengthen the
                            muscles that stabilize the
                            shoulder blade
                           •Passive stretching beyond
                           the patient's own range of
Phase 3 (12 to 16 weeks)   •Strengthening the repaired
                           cuff muscles
                           •More strengthening of the
                           stabilizers of the shoulder

Phase 4 IV (> 16 weeks)    •Functional strengthening
                           •Rehabilitation for sports

Frozen Shoulder Syndrome

“Freezing” shoulder
“Frozen” shoulder
“Thawing” shoulder
Freezing Shoulder

“Freezing” shoulder
  Usually starts with inflammatory process,
   such as impingement syndrome.
  Subscapularis trigger points limit external
   rotation, abduction
  Shoulder becomes painful, then stiff
  Best opportunity for intervention is here!
Frozen Shoulder

Capsule undergoes fibrotic changes
(“Adhesive capsulitis”)
PT intervention alone is of questionable
May benefit from manipulation under
 anesthesia, followed by PT care.
Thawing Shoulder

Shoulder spontaneously becomes less painful,
 less stiff.
If in rehab, take credit for result, but probably
 little effect from treatment.
Nearly all frozen shoulders spontaneously
 resolve in 6 to 18 months
May recur on opposite side
Rare in African-Americans
acic Rhythm

Occur in 2:1 ratio GH/ST, but not in
 constant ratio.
GH joint moves first, with stabilized
Then, move in 1:1 ratio.
Then finish with mostly GH motion
FINAL ratio is 2:1
Glenohumeral Dislocation

Usually caused by violent abduction/external
 rotation of humerus.
Humerus dislocates in anterior, inferior
Causes disruption of anterior labrum (Bankart
If repeated, posterior aspect of humerus strikes
 labrum, producing indentation in humerus (Hill
 Sachs lesion.)

Posterior to Biceps Attachment

Bicipital Tear (Longhead)
Scapulothoracic Problems

Winging scapula from poor posture, habit.
  Common in tall, early developing females, swimmers
  Correlated with G-H problems
May be from long thoracic nerve palsy, taking
 out serratus anterior.
  Results in inability to raise arm above 120 degrees
Serratus Anterior Loss

                 120 degrees abduction
Suprascapular Nerve Palsy

              Suprascaular nerve
               innervates supra- and

              What’s the sensory
Coracoacromial lig- provides roof over
 the humeral head - acts as a protective
Scapular movements must be
 accompanied by shoulder joint

Disorders of PNS-
neuropraxia-local blockage interfering
 with conduction , it’s OK above and
 below-commonly caused by
 compression-Saturday night palsy-radial
 nerve or Bell’s palsy, no disruption of
Axonotmesis-nerve injury characterized
 by disruption of the axon and myelin
 sheath but with preservation of
 supporting CT resulting in axonal
 degeneration distal to the injury site-the
 deficit depends on the # of axons
neurotmesis- partial or complete
 severance of a nerve with disruption of
 axons, myelin sheaths and supporting
 connective tissue resulting in
 degeneration of axons distal to the injury
 site (worst of the 3)
Disorders of PNS
Erb’s palsy-compression or stretching of
 upper BP nerve roots (C5,6)-results in
 “waiter’s tip” sign
Klumpke’s paralysis-compression or
 stretching of lower BP (C8,T1)-results in
 functionless hand
Bursae-fluid filled sac which can be
 inflammed-bursitis-most common in
 shoulder-subdeltoid and subacromial-
 least likely subscapular bursitis
Signs-warm, edematous with
 tenderness over area
Pain quality-intense, dull, throbbing all
 movements painful
Tendonitis-inflammation of the tendon
RTC tendonitis-supraspinatus most
 involved-results from overuse, tennis,
 baseball, carpenters, plumbers-can also
 be poor blood supply causing scarring
 or Ca deposits-can bring about tears,
 bursitis or impingements; local steroids
 can relieve symptoms but may cause
 structural wknss of tendon
Pain quality-sharp twinges ie. Donning
 jacket, reaching OH, abd or IR arm
Onset-gradual. May sometimes refer to
 C5-6 dermatome
RTC tears-acute, chronic, full, partial
 thickness tears;<1cm. Small, >5cm.
 Massive-usually traumatic but may be
pain-not always severe but pt con’t
 raise arm and has severs atrophy lat
 and ant deltoid region-may require
Adhesive capsulitis-frozen shld.-trauma,
 disuse, immobilization, RTC lesions
pain-dull-severe with activity, pain at
Onset-gradual, will see increase activity
 of upper traps
Impingement syndrome-supra, long
 head biceps, subacro bursa most
 affected-pt. will exhibit painful arc of
 motion b/w 70-120 degrees
3 stages:
I-edema-athlete or poor posture, young
 person with no recollection of injury
II-fiborsis and tendinitis (20-40
 yo)recurrent pain with activity
III-bone spurs and tendon ruptures-
 long history (50-60yo)
G-H instability-hum head dislocates
 through ant capsule, RTC ms. Can be
Brachial plexus lesions-numbness
 and burning entire arm, hand,
 fingers, sensory loss over 2 or
 more dermatomes, paralysis of
 arm, may be transcient -
 tenderness over BP with increased
 symptoms with movement of head
 to opposite side
Thoracic outlet syndrome-often called
 neurovascular compression-symptoms
 resulting from injury at upper border of
 thorax where BP and subclavian a are
 located-can be caused from a C-rib
treatment-postural correction ex to bring
 back shoulders
Brach plex lesions-numbness and burning
 entire arm, hand, fingers-sensory los over
 2 or more derm-paralysis of arm-may be
 transcient-tenderness over BP with
 increase symptoms when turning head
 opp. side

X-ray-for bony defects, alignment,
 exostosis (bone spurs), osteophytes and
C-T scans-specific for bone
