    1. What is the mechanism of injury for a sternoclavicular sprain? In the majority of sternoclavicular sprains, what is the direction of clavicle displacement? The majority of injuries result from compression related to a direct blow, as when a supine individual is landed on by another participant, or more commonly, by indirect forces transmitted from a blow to the shoulder or a fall on an outstretched arm. The disruption typically drives the proximal clavicle superior, medial, and anterior.

    Snapping Scapula Snapping scapula is a condition in which the shoulder blade (scapula) rubs against the ribs and causes a “snapping” sound or feeling. This can cause pain and affect shoulder function. In some cases, snapping scapula is painless. This condition usually goes away with proper treatment. This condition may cause fluid-filled sacs that is marked by persistent “snapping” of the shoulder blade (scapula). You may feel a snapping sensation or hear a snapping sound. You may feel shoulder

(1) The supraspinatus is located above the scapular spine on the posterior of the scapula and attaches to the supraspinous fossa on the scapula (10). The infraspinatus is below the scapular spine and attaches to the infraspinous fossa on the scapula (11). The teres minor is found on the lateral border of the scapula (9). The supraspinatus

  • Trapezius Palsy Research Paper

    1012 Words  | 5 Pages

    The trapezius is a large muscle in the upper back that helps to control the shoulder blade (scapula) and stabilize the spine. Trapezius palsy happens when a nerve (spinal accessory nerve) that connects the spinal cord to the trapezius muscle becomes damaged. This causes pain and weakness in the back of the shoulder and the upper back. This also limits the range of motion of the shoulder joint. Damage to the spinal accessory nerve usually happens because of an injury to the back or shoulder. Trapezius

    neutralizers. For example, during shoulder rotation, the rotator cuff is active. However, the rhomboids, serratus anterior, and trapezius must work as stabilizers of the scapula to ensure a stable orgin for the rotator cuff. Therefore, pseudoweakness of the rotator cuff may be caused by poor stabilization of the scapula; if the scapula is stabilized manually, the patient demonstrates normal strength of the rotator cuff.
