    80-90 degress is the normal range for anyone's IR and ER
    I wouldn't worry about it :dunno:

    you don't do much within your Activities of daily living that require more than that range

    when you do that test, you also want to be careful and watch out for the head of the humerus and make sure it doesn't pop out too much

    oh, i see

    external seems ok.

    hmm, you can do a prolonged stretch in the sleeper position, just use a cuff weight to put on your wrist and let the weight and gravity help :hsd:

    you didnt mention that the shoulder neeeds to stay planted on a surface without movement otherwise you dont get a good stretch. I went through this for the last 7 months

    ya most people will plant their chin on the shoulder and press to keep it down. Just like the first picture. You will feel pain in the lateral head of the delt if you don't point your hand towards your ribcage. You should be feeling it near the rear of the shoulder.

    If the rotators are very tight the shoulder will lift off with little rotation. ITs good to have a person help you do this.

    I know...I'm just going by what Lancer is giving us, and since he can't test himself properly, he has to do what he has to do

    I know, I'm in PT :hs:

    I didn't go to PT school, I'm in PT assistant school. PT school comes later in life ( i don't have the focus right now) :mamoru:

    yeah, thinking about going to Loma Linda for their DPT-transition program :o
