Do you have Scapular Dyskinesis?

This is a video📹 of patient on his first visit who presented with restricted range of motion, pain, and difficulty with elevating his arm. His symptoms came on after an increase in playing baseball ⚾ and overhead activity. He had some rotator cuff iritabililty and bicep tendon 💪pain.
-
🚧Scapular dyskinesis🚧 (which may also be referred to as SICK scapula syndrome) is an alteration or deviation in the normal resting or active position of the scapula during shoulder movement.
-
You can see here that he has a more prominent medial border of his right shoulder blade, especially towards the bottom. When he begins to abduct his arms, the shoulder blades inappropriately retract➡️⬅️, and prevent protraction↔️ and proper scapular mechanics.
-
When he returns from abduction to neutral, his shoulder blade "wings" 🦅or pops out away from the rib cage, and downwardly rotates much more than his other side.

-
Within 3 visits, this had normalized, and before visit 6, he was back out on the diamond without pain.
