Pain of the glenohumeral joint
Measurement of internal and external rotation of the shoulder joint.
Measurement of the range of motion in the shoulder joint is classified as a dynamic test.
The most common problem encountered with the shoulder joint is soreness with certain movements. In young patients, unless there is an injury, this is usually due to overload (work or sports overload), in older patients it is due to degenerative changes in the muscles or the joint unit itself.
Some painful symptoms are relatively easy to investigate and thus determine the origin of the difficulty, because they are only manifested in certain movements in specific degrees of range. We will give a few examples.
- From supination to extension in the range of 0-60° - caused predominantly by the musculus supraspinatus
- From supination to extension ranging from 60° to 120° - caused predominantly by the subacromial space (bursa, rotator cuff muscles,)
- From supination to extension in the range above 120° - causes predominantly acromioclavicular articulation,
- Restriction of external and internal rotation plus extension - causes damage to the joint unit itself in most cases (trauma, degenerative change, frozen shoulder).
Using HumanTrak we can determine the exact path and degree at which painful symptoms manifest themselves. Classical diagnosis by a physiotherapist in conjunction with the HumanTrak diagnostic device creates a perfect mind-technique connection.
