Sulcus test
Pt. arms at side relaxed, then force pulled
Depression (sulcus) below acromion=unstable
glenohumeral joint
Ext. Rotation
Hands behind head, elbows toward scapula
Observe differences of rotation
A/C sprain test
Pt. sitting, clavicles visualized
Pull down on arms at elbows
Separation or deformity = A/C sprain/dislocation
Int. Rotation
Hands behind back, raise hands up
Observe differences of rotation
Ext. Rot Strength
E/R hands, challenge movement
Weakness=Infraspinatus or teres minor
Int. Rot. Strength
I/R hands, challenge movement
Weakness=subscapularis, pec. minor or pec.
Ext with resistance
Weakness=post. deltoid
Hand on shoulder and inside elbow, pt. flex
Weakness=Ant. deltoid
Hand on shoulder, pt abd. against resistance
Weakness=Lat. deltoid
Hand on shoulder, inside elbow
Resistance on adduction
Weakness=Latissimus dorsi and/or teres major
Empty Can test
Arms outstretched, internally rotated. Push down
on wrists
Percussion test
Tap the distal aspect of involved bone
Compression test
Place hand below fracture and compress
Pain at suspected site = fracture
S/C sprain test
Pt. sitting, thumbs placed at proximal clavicle
and compressed
Joint laxity = S/C sprain
Aprehension test
Arm abducted at 90 degress flexion
Stand behind pt and stabilize shoulder while E/R
at wrist
Grimace or pain indicates sprain of the Ant.
Hawkins-Kennedy test
Pt. add. & flex arm 90 degrees. Stabilize elbow
and down on wrist
Pain = subacromial bursa
Speed's test
Pt. flex arm 60 degrees at side, and flex against
Pain at bicipital groove=biceps tendon
Drop arm test
Pt raise arm past 90 degrees of add. and slowly
Quick drop = rotator cuff tear or supraspinatus
Winged scapula test
Pt. hands against wall (like pushup)
Protruding scap = serratus anterior (long thoracic
