Goniometer Position: FULCRUM: at anterior or posterior surface of the This position is important in order to prevent impingement of the greater tuberosity of the humerus at the acromion process (Figure 1-3-5). acromion process depending on the client’s starting position STABLE ARM: parallel to the sternum (anterior) or spine (posterior) MOVABLE ARM: medial aspect of the humerus Ending—client moves the testing extremity into maximum humeral abduction (Figure 1-3-6). 18 ■ Chapter 1 Shoulder: humeral adduction End feel: soft Normal ROM: 180–0 degrees Figure 1-3-7 Start position for humeral adduction.

Client Position: Client is supine with knees Goniometer Position: flexed or sitting. FULCRUM: lateral surface of the acromion Starting—testing extremity is at client’s side, elbow extended and forearm in neutral (Figure 1-3-1). process Ending—client moves the testing extremity into maximum humeral flexion (Figure 1-3-2). Therapist Position: Observe the scapula to pre- vent compensatory elevation, posterior tilt, and upward rotation. STABLE ARM: mid axilla/thorax MOVABLE ARM: lateral midline of the humerus 16 ■ Chapter 1 Shoulder: humeral extension/hyperextension End feel: firm Normal ROM: 0–60 degrees Figure 1-3-3 Start position for humeral extension/hyperextension.

Goniometer Position: Starting—testing extremity is in 90 degrees of humeral abduction, elbow flexed to 90 degrees, forearm perpendicular to the plinth. A pad is placed under the humerus (Figure 1-3-9). FULCRUM: midline of the olecranon process STABLE ARM: perpendicular to the floor MOVABLE ARM: midline of the lateral ulna Ending—client moves the testing extremity into maximum humeral external rotation (Figure 1-3-10). Therapist Position: Observe the distal end of humerus to maintain 90 degrees of abduction and to prevent compensation of excessive scapular depression.
