Stanford 25 Session: Shoulder Exam with Mark Genovese

February 18, 2014

Thank you to Dr. Genovese for leading last week’s Stanford 25 session on the shoulder exam. Dr. Genovese emphasized technique and the importance of the exam of the shoulder over imaging. He says the following: “Visualize, palpate, active range of motion, passive range of motion, assess rotator cuff against resistance, assess for impingement. Value of the shoulder exam is far more important than standard or advanced imaging.”
