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

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

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 allows. There are three major moving parts of the shoulder, the scapula, humerus, and the clavicle, making up three moving joints. The glenohumeral (G-H) and the acromio-clavicular (AC) are synovial joints, where as the scapulo-thoracic (ST) is a sesamoid bone floating around the ribs. We believe that restoring rotation of the glenohumeral joint, acromio-clavicular and scapula thoracic articulation before elevation is the safest and most efficient methods of treating patients with stiff and painful shoulders.
