TIP 212 Shoulder Adduction – Deviation From Coronal Plane

  • Adducting the arm from Anatomical Position will be quite limited by the torso
  • To get full adduction the arm has to be brought into extension or flexion (better choice as more movement is possible)
  • As people are of different build, there will be more or less flexion necessary with this movement
  • More important than trying to cut out flexion is to have the client perform the movement on both sides under the same conditions, i.e. ensure the same degree of flexion on both sides
