Electromyographically based rehabilitation exercises for the scapular muscles
Manske, Robert C. 2006-07. Electromyographically based rehabilitation exercises for the scapular muscles. Athletic therapy today, 11(5), pp .15-16
Both the scapulothoracic- and scapulohumeral-muscle complexes are critical to a fully functional and asymptomatic shoulder. Strengthening exercises for these essential muscle groups should not be done in a random pattern, without careful thought and consideration. There appears to be sufficient evidence from the literature to help clinicians develop a specific structured treatment approach to address deficits in each muscle group.
