Symptoms: tension headaches, right shoulder pain.
- The right infraspinatus and right teres major are hypertrophied.
- A slight left rib hump was apparent in prone.
- The left foot is everted
- The right hip is higher when checked in standing
- The torso looks to be rotated to the right with the pelvis rotated to the left
Functional movement assessment
- the right foot pronates normally during walking but the left foot adducts at toe off.
- There is reduced ankle rocker in the left foot
will consist of creating tension in the right retractors, upward rotators and elevators of the right scapula, specifically the trapezius upper, lower and middle fibres and the right rhomboids. The right serratus anterior may be locked short. Stretching will focus on the right pec minor/major.
The dropped right shoulder is creating tension on the scalenes, with their attachments on the transverse processes C2-C7 may potentially be causing the tension headaches.
The right hip is higher causing a mild C-curve scoliosis toward the left.
As the right scapula is internally rotated and the right elbow points more inwards then the left, this would mean a laterally rotated right glenohumeral joint and therefore short lateral rotators (infraspinatus and teres minor.
A slight left rib hump was apparent in prone which would insinuate a slight C-curve scoliosis toward the left. Could the abducted right arm cause a c-curve scoliosis due to its greater lever then the left arm?
