SUMMARY We have examined several aspects of nervous system function and dysfunction in the shoulder complex. We described disorders of neural tissue that can give rise to the perception of shoulder pain, such as nerve root disorders, peripheral nerve injuries, and pain referred 45 from structures outside the shoulder region. In addition, we considered the poorly understood phenomenon of sensorimotor integration over the shoulder. Very often shoulder pain is analyzed simply on the basis of a suspected mechanical etiology.
These exercises can also be effective in shoulder rehabilitation if carefully adapted to the specific patient needs. Examples using medicine balls of varying weights and circumferences with an emphasis on the rate of reversing the muscle action from the lengthening phase to the shortening phase include: ● ● ● ● ● ● Medicine ball “presses” from the bench press position or medicine ball presses from the incline bench position Two-handed soccer throws Underhand two-handed side throws, single-arm catch and throws, or push-ups (with knees on floor) to 4-inch block (being very aware of the potential for posterior shear at the glenohumeral joint (see Chapter 4) Push-ups (with knees on floor) from a 4-inch block to floor and back up to 4-inch block (again, aware of the posterior shear at the glenohumeral joint) Modifications of the plyometric push-ups with the patient “falling” toward a wall (as in a wall pectoralis major stretch) and pushing away quickly Plyometric sit-ups using elastic energy of muscles involved in push pressing activities or plyometric situps using elastic energy from shoulder extensors The last two exercises offer excellent ways to incorporate training of the shoulder girdle and abdominal mechanism.
Still others have a twisting or spiral course as the muscle links the two bony ends. In several key muscles of the shoulder complex, there is a twisting and spiral course. These muscles include the intricate trilaminar fiber arrangement of the pectoralis major tendon, the latissimus dorsi tendon, the muscle fibers of the levator scapulae, and the weaving of the muscle fibers of the infraspinatus. No muscle acts in isolation. Rather, a coordinated series of muscle contractions creates loads on all tissues in the region throughout the range of movement.
