There are two treatment categories for a
Grade III AC joint dislocation, what are they
Non-operative = 6-8 weeks immobilization delayed application of motion and resistance exercises
Operative = early rehab to maintain mobility and strength of distal joints
What are the four types of shoulder arthroplasty prosthetics
- Unconstrained = anatomical design, most frequent, greatest freedom no stabilityused when RC mechanism intact or can be repaired
- Semiconstrained = larger cupped/hooded glenoid component, some satbility, indicated with erosion to fossa
- Reverse ball and socket = some stability for RC deficient shoulder that cant be repaired
- Constrained = fixed fulcrum,
- greatest amount of joint stability with less mobility, rarely used, hardware loosening
What are exercise guidelines during the 3 phases after a TSA?
Max. protection = inflammation/pain control, mobility of adjacent joints, restore shoulder mobility (protocol from Dr.), minimize gaurding & atrophy
Mod protection = continue ROM, develop strength & endurance
Min Protection = end range stretching, passive resistive exercises, return to functional activities
What is the restrictive capsular pattern of the GH?
What is the open and closed pack position of the GH joint?
- open = ABD 55°, horizontal adduction 30°
- closed = full abduction, lateral rotation
What structures make up theses joints?
AC Joint = acromioclavicular & coracoclavicular ligaments
SC Joint = costoclavicular, sternoclavicular, and interclavicular ligaments.
What are the Neer classifications of shoulder impingement
Neer I <25 years, edema & hemorrhage, pain with abduction > 90°, reversible
Neer II 25-40 years, irreversible as tendons have become fibrotic, pain with ADLs and at night
Neer III >40 years, tendon degeneration, tears/ruptures, usually long history of shoulder dysfunction
What are the 4 Jobe groups of impingement?
Jobe's Group 1 = pure impingement, usually older recreational athlete with partial tear
Jobe's Group 2 = labral tear, secondary impingement
Jobe's Group 3 = hypermobility, multidirectional instability
Jobe's Group 4 = anterior instability due to trauma/dislocation
How is the Neer test performed
Patient flexes arm to 180° while internally rotated
A patient actively abducts arm slowly to 180°. What test is this and what does it test for?
Painful arc and it test for shoulder impingement
Patient's is placed in 90° of shoulder flexion and elbow flexed to 90° with arm internally rotated. Therapist then passively internally rotates shoulder and approximates the GH joint. What test is this
What is intrinsic impingement and how does it occur
Tissue degradation of inferior tendon being compressed and a tear developing which occurs inferior to superior, leads to articular side rotator cuff tear
What is extrinsic impingement and how does it occur
compression of the tendon under the coracoacromial arch and ligament, resulting in mechanical wear, stress and friction
There are two stages of extrinsic impingement
what are they.
Primary = mechanical compressionof RC tendon due to structural variance of acromiom or humeral head
Secondary = GH joint instability that creates reduced subacromial space, humeral head elevates and minimizes space
What postures can have an affect on shoulder impingement?
- Thoracic Kyphosis
- Forward head
- Protracted and forward tilted scapula
Tightness of what muscles have an affect on impingement or Rotator Cuff Disease (RCD)
Pec minor, levator scapulae, internal rotators
Overuse and fatigue of the rotator cuff can lead to
shoulder impingement and RCD
