Rehabilitation einer instabilen Schulter bei einem Handballspieler

FallberichtRehabilitation of an Instable Shoulder in a Handball PlayerCase Report
Steffen Klittmann


Da posteriore Instabilitäten der Schulter in der Praxis selten anzutreffen sind, gibt es nur wenig Literatur zum klinischen Vorgehen in der physiotherapeutischen Untersuchung und Behandlung.

In diesem Fallbericht wurde ein junger Patient mit dorsaler glenohumeraler Instabilität und einer Schwäche des M. serratus anterior mit Manueller Therapie und Übungstherapie untersucht und behandelt.


Posterior shoulder instability is seldom seen in clinical practice. In consequence very little literature concerning the clinical procedures of physiotherapeutic examination and treatment exists.

In this case report a young patient with dorsal glenohumeral instability and weakness of the serratus anterior muscle was examined and treated with manual therapy and exercise therapy.
