Project: Analysis of scapsular muscle recruitment in patients with chronic shoulder and neck pain, by use of fine wire EMG and muscle functional MRI

project duration
01/10/12 – 30/09/14
abstract
The overall goal is to evaluate the amount and timing of activation of the different shoulder girdle muscles, in a sample of patients with chronic neck pain and shoulder pain compared to healthy subjects. All muscles surrounding the scapula will be examined during several tasks using 2 methods of investigation: Electromyography (surface and fine-wire) and Muscle functional MRI.
