Her plan of management included spinal manipulation and mobilization of the cervicothoracic spine, shoulder mobilizations, and myofascial release to treat the biceps tendon, infraspinatus, teres minor, rhomboid major, levator scapulae, trapezius, and pectoralis major on the right.
The rotator cuff is composed of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis muscles (29).
Specifically, the cable and eyelet configurations simulate the three heads of the deltoid (middle, posterior, anterior), the supraspinatus, the subscapularis, the pectoralis major, the infraspinatus, and teres minor.
The following muscles may be found to be lengthened and taut/tight: rhomboids, middle and lower trapezius, serratus anterior, longus colli and capitis, infraspinatus and teres minor, and thoracic paraspinals (erector spinae and transversospinalis).
