In the present study, facilitation technique has been applied to the middle part of deltoid, supraspinatus, and teres minor. Data showed significant improvement AEMG in the taping group after taping, implying that kinesiology taping can activate the muscles.
Caption: Figure 4: Coronal T2 MRI: (1) humeral head, (2) glenoid cavity, (3) supraspinatus muscle, (4) teres minor muscle, and (5) complete rupture of the teres major muscle.
Isolated teres minor atrophy is clinically important because the symptom includes posterior shoulder pain, weakness of abducted external rotation (Kruse et al., 2015).
No pathology of infraspinatus and teres minor was observed on either USG or MRI giving them the specificity, negative predictive value and accuracy of 100%.
The labrum, long head of the biceps tendon, supraspinatus, infraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor tendons were intact.
Both the 42 mm Grammont and 42 mm Equinoxe[R] rTSA prostheses significantly decreased the mean force required by the infraspinatus, teres minor, total posterior cuff, and pectoralis major muscles and also significantly decreased the mean joint reaction force during scapular abduction with the elbow flexed to 90[degrees] relative to the native joint with a rotator cuff tear (supraspinatus), (Table 1).
Initial non-enhanced MRI of the left shoulder demonstrated abnormal osseous edema in the lateral humeral head and neck, and abnormal soft tissue edema in the teres minor muscle, including its myotendinous junction and humeral insertion (Figures 1 and 2).

2 demonstrated teres minor muscle extravasation, one with and one without intermuscular involvement between the teres minor and infraspinatus.
Authors have proposed that the posterior shoulder fracture-dislocation pattern of injury is produced by forceful, sustained, posterior-directed tetany of the deltoid, latismus dorsi, teres major, teres minor, and infraspinatus muscles [25-27].
The rotator cuff is a group of four muscle tendons: the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis.
The stability and function of the shoulder joint rely in part on the four muscles that make up the rotator cuff: the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis (see Figure 1).
Important softtissue structures include the capsule, subacromial bursa and rotator cuff muscles - supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis.
The path lies between the infraspinatus muscle and the teres minor muscle, with the point of entry 2 cm inferior and 1 cm medial to the posterior angle of the acromion.
