    • Middle finger on humeral head, index on coracoid process
    • ABD shoulder to 45 degrees, EXT ROT and EXT shoulder
    • Palpate humeral head for anterior movement
    • + Increased Ant movement
    • + Apprehension
    • + Pain
  2. Feagin: Inferior Instability
    • pt sitting, examiner kneeling at pt side
    • Support pt arm on examiner's shoulder, do Inf Glide + slight Ant glide
    • + Increased Inf movement
    • + Apprehension
    • + Pain
  3. Pull-Pushl: Posterior Instability
    • pt supine, examiner holds arm at elbow, with other hand @ proximal Humerus
    • Move pt arm into scapular plane (90 ABD, 30 H-ADD)
    • Distract @ elbow, plus Post glide @ GH
    • + more than 50% translation
    • + Apprehension
  4. Upper Limb Tension Tests
  5. Neer's Impingement Test
    • pt seated
    • Stabilize GH jt
    • Int Rot GH jt
    • Passively Flex/ABD into scapular plane, forcibly to endpoint
    • + Pain
  6. Impingement Syndrome Test: Hawkins Kenedy
    • pt seated
    • Passively Flex shoulder to 90 with elbow bent
    • Then passive Int Rot (driving greater tubercle into arch)
    • + Pain
  7. Speeds Test: Bicipital Tendonitis
    • pt sitting, RMT palps @ bicipital tendon

    • pt seated
    • Passively ABD arm to 90, ask pt to hold there
    • pt slowly lowers arm to side in a controlled fashion
