To Evaluate Scapulohumeral Rhythm in Scapular Dyskinesia in Software Professionals with Neck Pain
Neck Pain a musculoskeletal condition which is increasing commonly throughout the World having considerable impact on individuals that affects their social, physical and psychological aspects. Neck Pain is more prevalent in office workers than in general community. Computers have become an epitome of modern life, being used in every aspect of life. Work related Neck pain is leading cause of disability and absenteeism. Evaluation, treatment planning for Neck Pain rehabilitation often fails to include an objective assessment of scapular motion. Methodology: A cross-sectional study,120 subjects with Neck Pain. Convenient sampling method was done. Subjects were screened for Scapular Dyskinesia using Lateral Scapular Slide Test(LSST) those fulfilling the inclusion criteria, further Scapular Upward Rotation(SUR) assessed by Digital Inclinometer at 00,450,900,1200 of Gleno-Humeral abduction and assessed for Scapulohumeral rhythm(SH rhythm). NDI questionnaire was asked to fill. Results: The results showed statistically significant correlation between all the variables. SUR is more in dominance hand and SH rhythm is more in non-dominance hand and is altered in all the angles and none were closely related to the clinically accepted ratio. SH rhythm is more in starting angles of humeral elevation and is less when reaching to full range.
