The Shoulder: How Much Do You Know About Shoulder Pain? - Quiz


While there are many different causes of shoulder injuries -- from playing racquet sports to shoveling snow to lifting a heavy suitcase -- the majority of injuries affect just four different structures. Unfortunately, all too often the standard assessment techniques are inconclusive, and people live with the pain for weeks, months, or even years before receiving appropriate treatment. How much do you know about the relevant anatomy, assessment tests, and effective treatment techniques that can reduce, prevent, and eliminate severe and chronic shoulder pain?

    Limited lateral rotation of the shoulder can be an indicator of:

    • A.

      Both arthritis and bursitis

    • B.

      Arthritis only

    • C.

      Bursitis only

    Correct Answer
    A. Both arthritis and bursitis
    Explanation
    Limited lateral rotation of the shoulder can be an indicator of both arthritis and bursitis. Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints, which can restrict movement and lead to limited rotation of the shoulder. Bursitis, on the other hand, is the inflammation of the bursae, which are small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints. When the bursae in the shoulder become inflamed, it can cause pain and limited range of motion, including limited lateral rotation. Therefore, the presence of limited lateral rotation in the shoulder can suggest both arthritis and bursitis as potential underlying conditions.

    Throwing a ball overhead uses primarily what muscle?

    • A.

      Infraspinatus

    • B.

      Supraspinatus

    • C.

      Subscapularis

    • D.

      Biceps

    Correct Answer
    C. Subscapularis
    Explanation
    The subscapularis muscle is primarily responsible for throwing a ball overhead. It is one of the four rotator cuff muscles located in the shoulder joint. The subscapularis muscle helps to internally rotate the arm and stabilize the shoulder joint during overhead movements like throwing. It plays a crucial role in generating power and control during the throwing motion, making it the correct answer for this question.

    Which movement is most painful when a client has an acromio-clavicular ligament sprain.

    • A.

      Passive horizontal adduction

    • B.

      Passive elevation

    • C.

      Passive lateral rotation

    • D.

      Passive medial rotation

    Correct Answer
    A. Passive horizontal adduction
    Explanation
    Passive horizontal adduction is the most painful movement when a client has an acromio-clavicular ligament sprain. This is because the acromio-clavicular ligament is responsible for stabilizing the joint between the acromion process of the scapula and the clavicle. When this ligament is sprained, any movement that involves bringing the arm across the body, such as horizontal adduction, puts stress on the injured ligament and causes pain.

    How many degrees of motion are there at the glenohumeral joint?

    • A.

      90

    • B.

      180

    • C.

      270

    • D.

      360

    Correct Answer
    A. 90
    Explanation
    The glenohumeral joint is a ball-and-socket joint that connects the upper arm bone (humerus) to the shoulder blade (scapula). It allows for a wide range of motion in the shoulder. The correct answer is 90 degrees because the glenohumeral joint primarily allows for flexion and extension, which is movement in the sagittal plane. Other movements such as abduction, adduction, and rotation also occur at the glenohumeral joint, but they are not included in the given answer options.
