Red Flag Screen 3: Obvious Dysfunctional Movement

Test this by raising the arms overhead in front of the body. Test each arm individually and then both arms at the same time. The body shouldn’t compensate by leaning to the opposite side of the arm is raised. Other issues may be a significant sudden jerk, collapse, or winging of the shoulder blade on the affected side compared to the normal shoulder. Look for these changes with both lifting and lowering. Any obvious dysfunctional movement is a Red Flag.
