Anyways to fix this?
lay sidelying on the side of involved arm, put arm at 90 degree angle, take univolved arm and take wrist of involved arm and internally rotate
Ill have to try this I cant move my right arm below || to the ground when I do internal/external rotation test
80-90 degress is the normal range for anyone's IR and ER
I wouldn't worry about it
you don't do much within your Activities of daily living that require more than that range
when you do that test, you also want to be careful and watch out for the head of the humerus and make sure it doesn't pop out too much
No Im saying my total for both is around 90, 80external about 10 internal
oh, i see
external seems ok.
hmm, you can do a prolonged stretch in the sleeper position, just use a cuff weight to put on your wrist and let the weight and gravity help
Yea this is as low as I can go:
yea do the sleeper stretches for a few days and see if there's any improvement
jesus christ is that really you in that pic?
Yea why? You cant really tell shit for anything in that picture
you didnt mention that the shoulder neeeds to stay planted on a surface without movement otherwise you dont get a good stretch. I went through this for the last 7 months
But when I tried this I had a nice sharp pain in my medial delt
Might just be the angle but it looks like you have 12" arms in that picture
ya most people will plant their chin on the shoulder and press to keep it down. Just like the first picture. You will feel pain in the lateral head of the delt if you don't point your hand towards your ribcage. You should be feeling it near the rear of the shoulder.
well i thought that was a given considering you need stabilization of the gh and st joint
If the rotators are very tight the shoulder will lift off with little rotation. ITs good to have a person help you do this.
I know...I'm just going by what Lancer is giving us, and since he can't test himself properly, he has to do what he has to do
I know, I'm in PT
Happy I did some curls today
You went to PT school?? some reason thought you were going to assistant school...congrats if you graduated.
A girl in one of my classes just was accepted into PT school down in California...she's not the brightest one outta the bunch
I didn't go to PT school, I'm in PT assistant school. PT school comes later in life ( i don't have the focus right now)
yeah, thinking about going to Loma Linda for their DPT-transition program
What did you get your undergrad in?
