Shoulder Evaluation can be hard.
I need help with my shoulder evaluation skills. I have plenty of room to improve.
Last podcast focused on Shoulder Anatomy building on that we are looking at evaluation tips and tricks to help me (and anyone else) refresh and grow my skills.
One thing we must remember is that a shoulder problem can really be a hip issues and the lack of mobility is stressing the shoulder more.

Some of the tips covered on this podcast:
- Tendons – painful at warm up, loosens up, but then painful after stopping
- Labrum – Pain throughout the activity, decreased accuracy, clicking sound or feeling
- Impingement – anterior pain with specific arm placement
- Quick isometric in each direction: Cyriax Selective Tissue Tensioning for contractile vs non-contractile tissue differential dx
- Contractile = painful with contraction and stretch
- Non-contractile – no real pain with stretch but pain as you passively move into contractile direction
Anatomy Coloring books are always fun.

Are you a Shoulder Anatomy expert?
I am not a Shoulder Anatomy expert. I know there are things I can still earn and use to help me understand, evaluate and rehab the shoulder. When I do not know an answer or notice a consistent weakness I normally head towards gaining understanding.
Fortunately I have some friends and colleagues that can help me gain understanding.

Are you too extreme?
There is always a balance or dichotomy of leadership. You can be too aggressive or not aggressive enough.
In Leadership you can be a micro-manager or not hands on enough.
You can be disciplined and follow all the rules, but not have room for flexibility or changes.
A leader must also be a follower.
Each point they discuss more in the book.
