FLAT SHOULDER PLANE

The following limitations are usually at the origin of this swing characteristic.

Either shoulder Mobility Dysfunction (more so rotation) can be at the origin of this swing deficiency.

Positive Tests: "90/90",“Reach, Roll and Lift", "Lat", Prone Shoulder External Rotation Test.

Other factors causing or feeding Flat Shoulder Plane are reduced overall spinal flexibility and mobility (more so rotation), thoracic stability and motor control dysfunction (stabilisers), dysfunctional scapulothoracic rhythm, reduced Latissimus flexibility, reduced mobility of shoulder girdle and other conditions such as subacromial Bursitis.

Positive Tests: “Seated Trunk Rotation”, "Lat", Passive Lumbar Locked Extension/Rotation, Extension Rolling Patterns (excessive lumbar extension to compensate from a restricted thoracic extension/rotation).
