Author's abstract

Snapping scapula syndrome is a symptom, not a diagnosis. Soft tissue pathology and bony abnormalities can lead to scapular noise. Anatomy and biomechanics of the scapulothoracic mechanism are reviewed prior to discussion of the possible pathology that may lead to scapular noise and pain. Key points concerning the differential diagnosis are covered briefly. Guidelines are presented for rehabilitation of the patient with soft tissue lesions causing scapular pain and noise. Verf.-Referat
