Treating Trigger Points in Infraspinatus - Dr. Jonathan Kuttner

 

Notes for the Video above:

The infraspinatus is an important muscle in scapula positioning as it decelerates internal rotation and shoulder flexion.

As with each of the other rotator cuff muscles (Supraspinatus, Subscapularis, Teres Minor) the infraspinatus depends upon an efficient core (lumbopelvic-hip complex) to translate the forces required from the lower to the upper limbs.

Clients typically present with deep shoulder pain (in the joint). In some cases pain will also refer to the biceps and down the side of the shoulder, radiating as far as the thumb.

Severe pain in the anterior deltoid and bicipital groove are a common aspect of these trigger points, with pain also experienced in the posterior neck.

Together with the other rotator cuff muscles, these trigger points can cause symptoms that can be easily misdiagnosed as a frozen shoulder.
