Passive mobility testing of the SC can be difﬁcult and uncomfortable for the patient because of the difﬁculty in grasping the clavicle itself. Bilateral comparison of anterior posterior glide and superior inferior glide can also assist the clinician in identifying either hypermobility or hypomobility of this joint. Research on the reliability of accessory mobility assessment of this joint is not available. Davies et al (1981) reported that, in cases of anterior SC joint subluxation, a posterior relocation force can be maintained during reexamination of active or passive movements.
In this position, the supraspinatus is palpable just off the anterior medial aspect of the acromion and “passes near vertical, lateral and parallel to the bicipital groove” (Cyriax & Cyriax, 1993; Mattingly & Mackarey, 1996). One limitation of this position for many patients with shoulder pain is the lack of the available range of internal rotation to achieve the position behind the back, similar to the Gerber lift-off test position (pages 99–100). For these patients, Hawkins and Bokor (1990) recommended a modiﬁed position that includes shoulder adduction, medial rotation, and less extension, such that the patient’s forearm is placed against the stomach.
Historically, joint motion during clinical examination was evaluation via visual observation (Berryman-Reese & Bandy, 2002). Early editions of the Joint Range of Motion Guide published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggested that visual observation of joint range of motion was equal or superior to goniometric evaluation. As early as 1949, Moore supported the use of the universal goniometer but outlined its inherent errors, including lack of standardized technique, patient positioning, and numerical expression.
