Bicipital tendinopathy – empty can test-provocative testing for teninopathies:rotator cuff tendinopathy: - empty can test with the arms abducted at 90 degrees, the arms are internally rotated with the thumbs pointed downward, downward force is placed on the arms against resistance (weakness or pain = supraspinatus tendinopathy)- neer test the examiner forward-flexes the arms causing impingement of the greater tuberosity of the humerus with the anterior & inferior edge of the acromium (pain = mechanical impingement of rotator cuff)- hawkins test forcibly internally rotating the proximal humerus while the shoulder is forward-flexed to 90 degrees and the elbow is flexed to 90 degrees (pain = mechanical impingement of the rotator cuff)- drop arm test the arm is passively abducted to 90 degrees and the patient is asked to maintain abduction (arm drops = complete rotator cuff tear)- shrug sign when the arm is abducted to 90 degrees, the patient appears to be shrugging on that side (acute macrotrauma to the rotator cuff)bicipital teninopathy:- yergasons sign flex the elbow to 90 degrees with the arm against the body and resist supination of the forearm (pain in proximal biceps tendon = bicipital tendinopathy)- speed test with the elbow extended and the forearm supinated, the patient resists forward flexion of the adducted shoulder at 60 degrees (pain in bicipital groove = bicipital tendinopathy or labral pathology)lateral epicondylitis:- cozen test patient keeps fist clenched while extending the wrist while examiner grasps the forearm with one hand and pulls the patients hand toward flexion again the patients resistance (pain at lateral epicondyle = lateral epicondylitis)de quervains tenosynovitis:- finkelstein test patient holds the affected thumb in the palm by the fingers and the wrist is then ulnar-deviated (pain near radial styloid = de quervains)achilles tendon rupture:- thompson test (simmonds test) examiner squeezes the calf muscles with the patient prone and feet hanging over the edge of the bed (absence of plantar flexion = achilles tendon tear)(chapter 115)
