The SDQ index, A-GT distance, and supraspinatus muscle
thickness were all improved in the NMES group (for all p<0.
Function of supraspinatus muscle
with torn cuff Evaluated by Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
was affected in 70% of the cases.
Additionally, an MRI was scheduled demonstrating a partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon, fluid in the subacromial/subdeltoid bursa compatible with shoulder impingement and moderate degenerative changes at the acromioclavicular joint encroaching upon the supraspinatus muscle
The test is considered positive for a supraspinatus muscle
tear if the patient is unable to keep the arm elevated after the physician releases the arm.
Isolated supraspinatus muscle
atrophy and fatty infiltration associated with recurrent anterior shoulder instability: A case report and review of the literature.
Primary intramuscular hydatidosis of supraspinatus muscle
Specific impingement tests as Neer, Hawkins, Whipple and Yocum were positive, digital compression of the OA site was painful, Jobe test for supraspinatus muscle
was positive as were the palm-up test for long head of biceps, all only in the right shoulder.
The supraspinatus muscle
arises from the posterior aspect of the scapula, just above the scapular spine, and courses horizontally and anteriorly at the level of the acromioclavicular joint, a good landmark for its musculotendinous junction.
Local peri-scapular wasting, especially the supraspinatus muscle
, viewed from above brings suprascapular nerve entrapment into the differential diagnosis.
SIS presents in many forms including bursitis and degenerative tendinitis and can lead to partial or full-thickness ruptures of the supraspinatus muscle
Loren Fishman's method trains the subscapularis muscle to take over for the injured supraspinatus muscle
in the rotator cuff.
Look for impingement signs and pain and/or weakness in the supraspinatus muscle
and external rotators.
Recently, muscle thickness change has been used as a parameter to characterize muscle fatigue , evaluate the effect of resistance training , and reveal muscle morphological decline of the supraspinatus muscle
due to a shoulder injury .
have been described a familial case of calcification of STSL affecting a 58 year old man and his son, who had STSL calcification causing entrapment neuropathy of the suprascapular nerve, clinical symptoms of pain, weakness of the external rotation and abduction, and atrophy of the supraspinatus muscle
