There is an endless amount of shoulder tests, many lacking any diagnostic accuracy. Mike Reinold, one of the authors of The Athlete's Shoulder, presents two new tests in this article to detect SLAP lesions: the Pronated Load Test and the Resisted Supination External Rotation Test. He provides a description and video review for the tests, along with some evidence. Additionally, he links to a few other posts of his on SLAP lesions, including classification, injury mechanisms, and examination. He is in the process of developing a related post on the rehabilitation of SLAP lesions. Check out the article to add a few new tests to your tool belt!
