Audience: more for me but anyone interested in the shoulder can read it.

Purpose: quick reference card for thinking about a functional shoulder diagnosis

The algorithm below is from Ann Cools work:

Screening the athlete’s shoulder for impingement symptoms: a clinical reasoning algorithm for early detection of shoulder pathology










The following picture shows a chart from Paula Ludewig work (Manual Therapy 2011) that shows functional deficits and how these deficits impact kinematic function.  Other research has linked these kinematic dysfunctions with shoulder impingement.
