The examiner stands on the same side of the patient’s shoulder being examined. Using clasped hands (Figure 5-4), the heels of the hands are located near the midpoint of the clavicle anteriorly and on the spine of the scapula posteriorly. With a compressing-type action, the anterior hand presses posteriorly on the clavicle, while the posteriorly placed hand presses anteriorly on the spine of the scapula in an oscillating-type pattern. Several oscillations of movement are performed, with particular attention paid to both the amount and quality of the motion with bilateral comparison carried out.

This position places the supraspinatus tendon just off the anterolateral aspect of the acromion and allows the patient’s extremity to be examined in a position of greater comfort that nearly all patients can achieve, even after a surgical procedure (Figure 7-1) (Hawkins & Bokor, 1990). The infraspinatus and teres minor tendons insert on the lower facets of the greater tuberosity of the humerus, and several positions have been recommended for palpation. Cyriax and Cyriax (1993) and Magee (1997) both recommended using a position where the patient is prone on elbows, with the affected shoulder in slight flexion, adduction, and lateral rotation.
