    Shoulder impingement, with video example

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Hey, I have had shoulder impingement for 6 months now.

    I went to a physio and he said my scapula control must be improved. He said to work on rhomboids but I'm still not sure how, or why.

    I have attached a short video demonstrating my current scapula control with overhead motion.

    if possible i would like to know:

    1. what exactly is wrong with my current scapula movement? can anyone show me a picture of where my scapula should really be?
    2. which muscles should i be using?
    3. how would i fix this?

    thanks physiobob

    training scapular should train in a co-ordinated way, not just the single muscle.
    impingement can be caused by scapular, humeral head, your thorax stiffness, best way to find which one is the cause is change it when you doing your painful movement, see which one making your movement better.
    1. humeral head, pull your arm backwards with a theraband right around your girdle (close your armpit), then lift your arm up, or loop rubber around your hands, and pull hands apart, tension your posterior shoulder up, any change with pain during movement?
    2. scapular, better movement is posterior, upwards to clear your humeral head. your rhomboids is working together with your trapezius and other rotator cuff muscles at same time to get your scapular move.
    3. get thoracic more flexible, especially backwards (be careful not your lower back).

    Sorry can't see your video either.
