Acute effects of scapular Kinesio Taping[R] on shoulder rotator strength, ROM and acromiohumeral
distance in asymptomatic overhead athletes.
Rotator cuff lesion can be predicted by X-ray measurements such as proximal humeral migration, acromion shape, and acromiohumeral
interval is measured to be 8 mm without signs of superior migration of the humeral head.
Effect of posture on acromiohumeral
distance with arm elevation in rotator cuff disease using ultrasonography.
 Prolonged muscle imbalances lead to a narrowing of the acromiohumeral
distance (AHD) and painful compression of the soft tissue structures which pass through the subacromial space (SAS) during dynamic humeral abduction.
distance in overhead athletes with glenohumeral internal rotation loss and the influence of a stretching program.
Using these radiographs the surgeon can assess bone quality, osteophytes, acromiohumeral
space, humeral canal diameter, and in most cases glenoid version.
We ordered diagnostic studies, including plain radiographs, which revealed degenerative changes at the acromioclavicular joint, decreased acromiohumeral
interval, and no significant changes at the glenohumeral joint (FIGURE 2), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the right shoulder.
Radiographs in the presence of a cuff tear may show superior migration of the humeral head, with a reduced acromiohumeral
distance of less than 7mm indicating a cuff tear (Ellman et al 1986, Walch et al 1992).
Effects of a movement training oriented rehabilitation program on symptoms, functional limitations and acromiohumeral
distance in individuals with subacromial pain syndrome, Man Ther.
The effects of arm elevation on the 3-dimensional acromiohumeral
distance: a biplane fluoroscopy study with normative data.
Rotator cuff tear arthropathy, as it was termed by Neer, was characterized by a massive rotator cuff tear with superior humeral head migration and diminished acromiohumeral
distance with "femoralization" of the tuberosities and "acetabularization" of the acromion.
