Abstract

Background: Little is known about trapezius muscle activities during scapular retraction exercises in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome. The aim of this study was to compare upper trapezius, middle trapezius and lower trapezius muscle activity and upper/middle and upper/lower trapezius ratios between patients with subacromial impingement syndrome and healthy individuals during six scapular retraction exercises.
