Mechanics and Pathomechanics in the Overhead Athlete.

PMID:  24079426     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
The overhead throwing or serving motion requires the coordinated activation of all of the bony segments in a kinetic and kinematic chain to generate and regulate the forces and motions to accomplish the task. Proper mechanics create the optimum forces and motions. Pathomechanics are frequently associated with alterations in performance and injury risk or injury. Knowledge of normal mechanics and possible pathomechanics can help in the evaluation of athletes with shoulder pain. The evaluation should be comprehensive, including the presence of pathomechanics, the anatomic and physiologic reasons for the pathomechanics, and evaluation of all elements in the kinetic chain.
