Scaption: What Is It and What Does It Mean for Your Overhead Press?

At Pinnacle Hill Chiropractic, we treat a lot of gym goers, whether it's competitive lifters, bodybuilders, or people looking to get in shape. We often see patients present for shoulder impingement as a result of lifting. If they say they mostly have pain when doing overhead movements, the first thing I do is ask them  to demonstrate for me. 


More often than not, their upper arms will be in straight line, 180 degrees separating them up. This is also the coronal plane. This can be problematic because the shoulder blades don't sit on the rib cage in the same 180 degree plane. They actually lie roughly 20-30 degrees off. So when we extend our arms back to 180 degrees, it can create a fulcrum which the anterior shoulder musculature is stretched awkwardly. This can cause friction, irritation, strain, and pain. There is a simple fix though. 


Simply keeping your upper arm in that same 20-30 degree forward of the coronal plane will reduce the amount of stress on the anterior shoulder musculature. This can reduce your risk of impingement syndrome and muscle strain. It should also be much more comfortable.
