Original Source: Influence of pain location and hand dominance on scapular kinematics and EMG activities: an exploratory study.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Assessment of three-dimensional kinematics and electromyography (EMG) activities is common in patients with chronic neck pain. However, the effect of hand dominance and neck pain location on the measurement of movement and EMG characteristics is still unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of neck pain location and arm dominance on the scapular kinematics and muscle EMG activities in patients with chronic neck pain. METHODS: Thirty subjects (10 mal...
