Summary of "Does the pectoralis minor length influence acromiohumeral distance, shoulder pain-function, and range of movement?"

To determine the association between pectoralis minor length (PML) and the acromiohumeral distance (AHD) in the symptomatic (S) and the asymptomatic (A) shoulder of subjects with chronic shoulder pain, and in shoulder free of pain controls (C). Furthermore, to analyze the relationship between PML and shoulder pain-function and range of movement (ROM) free of pain.

Immediate effects of kinesiotaping on acromiohumeral distance and shoulder proprioception in individuals with symptomatic rotator cuff tendinopathy.

Kinesiotaping is widely used for the rehabilitation of rotator cuff tendinopathy. It has been argued to reduce symptoms and functional limitations through improvement of proprioceptive feedback. In ad...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The pectoralis major and pectoralis minor muscles that make up the upper and fore part of the chest in front of the AXILLA.

The act of knowing or the recognition of a distance by recollective thought, or by means of a sensory process which is under the influence of set and of prior experience.

The distance between the anterior and posterior poles of the eye, measured either by ULTRASONOGRAPHY or by partial coherence interferometry.

The musculotendinous sheath formed by the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles. These help stabilize the head of the HUMERUS in the glenoid fossa and allow for rotation of the SHOULDER JOINT about its longitudinal axis.

Replacement for a SHOULDER JOINT.
