Study examines scapular orientation during elevation in controls vs patients with cuff pathology

Results from this study showed when the arm was at rest, scapular orientation was similar in healthy patients, patients with rotator cuff tears, and patients with both rotator cuff tears and subacromial impingement syndrome. However, when the arm was put in lateral elevation, patients with both rotator cuff tears and subacromial impingement syndrome showed significantly reduced upward rotation compared with healthy patients.
