Dr. Robert Donatelli: Rotation Before Elevation in Stiff and Painful Shoulders

One of the most important functional movements of the shoulder is active elevation. Restoring elevation in a time-efficient manner remains a challenging problem. The rehabilitation specialist needs to be a detective and figure out why a joint is not moving and/or what is causing the pain. Shoulder elevation is one of the most complicated movements in the body. If we analyze the shoulder motions, it is made up of moving parts all responsible for the functional movement patterns that the joint ...

FUNCTIONAL BIOMECHANICS OF THE FOOT AND ANKLE COMPLEX

Our feet are the first contact with earth for most of us, yet we pay very little attention to them. Unless they cause us a problem, we hardly even take care of them. For a structure that takes such a beating during our work and play lives, you would think we would pay close attention to our feet. Understanding loading, or functional biomechanics of the foot and ankle complex is a critical aspect of client care. Not only for clients presenting with primary diagnoses of the foot and ankle, b...

FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF SCAPULAR DISORDERS

Alterations in scapular function are associated with shoulder pain including rotator cuff disease, instability, and adhesive capsulitis. However, recent evidence suggests that resolving scapular dyskinesis is not associated with resolution of symptoms or predictive of arm injury in pitchers. Thus, a systematic approach that includes scapular position, muscle performance, and movement patterns is required to best understand the role of scapular dysfunction in patients with shoulder pain. This w...
