It a condition which the scapular motion and it position have limited which limited shoulder mobility. This condition can be notified by doing overhead movement also.


Relationship of Shoulder and Scapular Movement

Shoulder blade (Scapular bone) mobility is very essential for shoulder movement as it allows the shoulder to move better!


The restrictions or limitations of the shoulder will be affected by the scapular movement. This is because, the immobilized scapular bone will cause the shoulder joint space reduced during shoulder movements, and impingement occurs, in addition, it will trigger painful symptoms during the movement.


Many causes affect the limitations of scapular bone such as joint stiffness, muscle tightness, muscle weakness or etc. Thus, it is important to know the root cause of the scapular limitation as well as it will restrict your shoulder motion!
