Basic Functional Examination : Applied to the Shoulder

General Remarks

  • Adopt the correct position from where to start
  • Adopt a correct position of the hands
  • Look for the pain and not for a non-relevant unpleasant feeling
  • Always compare with the contralateral (normal) joint
  • Passive movements are done until the end of range is reached
  • Pattern

    Positive and negative results are brought together to form a pattern that points in the direction of either a pathology or a group of pathologies. In the latter, further information will be required to reach a more precise diagnosis. This information may be gained by accessory tests . An accessory examination is also done to positively confirm an existing but tentative diagnosis, to disclose the precise point affected within the structure or to confirm and further examine instability .
