Infraspinatus Tendinitis / Deep

  1. Pattern


  1. Diagnosis Help


  1. Local Treatment


Besides pain on maximal isometric lateral rotation (primary sing indicting a lesion of the infraspinatus) there is also pain at full passive elevation and/or passive lateral rotation (localizing sign).



This is explained by the abutment of the (inflamed) deep surface of the infraspinatus tendon against the folded glenoid rim at the extreme of lateral rotation ( or elevation).
