Intérêt des étirements des structures postérieures de l'épaule du lanceur atteint de Gird

Abstract : Background / Purpose: The shoulder is a high-risk joint for overhead athletes (basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc). The biomechanical results applied to the shoulder are very important, which can cause to pathologies. The internal rotation deficit of the glenohumeral (GIRD) is one of them. It’s therefore essential to have a joint ready to face the mechanical stress : stretching is one of the keys. Based on scientific studies, we will see if the use of stretching can improve the internal rotation of the shoulder of throwing athletes with GIRD. Methods: Searches were conducted on specialized sites such as PubMed, PEDro and Cochrane. Randomized clinical trials and controlled laboratory studies relevant to the topic were selected. The articles included deal with the effectiveness of stretching on shoulder joint amplitude, particularly in internal rotation and horizontal adduction, in the overhead athlete with GIRD. Results: 7 studies were included. Overall, significant results were obtained within the experimental groups for stretching of the posterior structures of the shoulder of the pitcher with GIRD. Furthermore, we must remain vigilant regarding the inter-article comparison, due to certain methodological variabilities. Conclusion: It’s recommended that MKDE clinician perform stretching to treat GIRD. Nevertheless, given the methodological criteria of each study, it is appropriate to take a step back from the effect of these stretches in clinical practice.
