Abstract

Background: The purpose of this investigation was to characterize the scapular position and scapular muscle activation during the empty can (EC) and full can (FC) exercises. The EC exercise has been shown to produce scapular kinematics associated with the mechanism leading to subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS) but has not been investigated in patients with (SAIS). This investigation will help improve the treatment of patients with SAIS.
