adhesive (frozen) stage lasts how long

4 to 6 months.

7

recovery (thawing) stage lasts how long

1 to 3 months

9

is an
inflammatory process of the long
head of the biceps tendon and is a
common cause of shoulder pain.

Bicipital tendinitis

10

constant pain

-itis

11

intermittent pain

derangement

12

Degeneration without inflammation is
known as

tendonosis

13

Ruptures of the proximal biceps
tendon make up 90-97% of all
biceps ruptures and almost
exclusively involve the

long head

14

following bicep ruptures, patients lose up to ___ % of their supination strength

20

15

involves a tear of the
superior labrum, which starts
posteriorly and extends anteriorly to
include the anchor of the biceps
tendon to the superior labrum.

SLAP lesion

16

dead arm syndrome in throwing
athletes

SLAP lesion

17

3 ways to develop SLAP lesion

traction
compression
repetitive traction

18

Patients with SLAP lesions often
present describing a poorly defined
pain that is _____ in location

19

gold standard in imaging SLAP lesion

arthroscopic eval

20

28

NEER stages

stage I (strengthen rotator)
stage II (might need medical or rehab)
stage III (hurt all time, surgery)
