Neer test | definition of Neer test by Medical dictionary
Neer test (nēr)
A clinical assessment to identify impingement of the rotator cuff tendons beneath the acromion. With the elbow extended, the patient's humerus is placed in internal rotation, and the forearm is pronated. The glenohumeral joint is then passively forced through forward flexion as the scapula is stabilized. The test is positive if the patient experiences pain in the anterior or lateral shoulder, typically above 90 degrees.
