Dr. Mark Kevern has been given the honor of reviewing a journal article for Physical Therapy in Sport

The article determined that scapular control and shoulder range of motion can be assessed with acceptable reliability in a field-based setting.  Due to measurement error, the use of hand-held dynamometer for strength assessments should be used with caution.  The article also reiterated that risk of injury threshold for ROM differences must be greater than 5 degrees to exceed measurement error and consistently detected.
