EMG response of shoulder muscles to acute subacromial pain

What is the influence of pain on shoulder muscle activity?

Changes in activation levels of the force couples acting on the scapulothoracic and glenohumeral joint are assumed to be either the cause or the consequence of subacromial pain (SAP). Via experimentally-induced pain, this study attempted to investigate the effects of SAP on EMG variables of periscapular and glenohumeral muscles in the concentric and the eccentric phase of an arm elevation task.
