assessment and accurate measurement is not possible. Another frequently used evaluation method is with a hand-held dynamometer. However, some specialties of raters such as gender, body weight, and grip strength affect a rater’s reliability in obtaining torque measurements. 6 Isokinetic dynamometers are

posterior rotator cuff muscles and scapular strengthening. 10 – 13 Isokinetic testing is an important part of the assessment of upper limb muscular strength. Researchers have demonstrated its effect in training and provided clinically relevant information regarding muscular performance through the

population-specific normative values of these tasks to help further improve the return-to-play decision process. Strength of the quadriceps and hamstring muscle groups are consistently tested through isokinetic and isometric tasks at varying speeds and joint positions. 4 , 12 , 13 Functional performance is

-R may contribute to inconsistent reporting of standardized tests or test batteries. 1 , 3 Assessment of physical function and health status for individuals with ACL-R is complex and warrants the use of diverse evaluation strategies. Multimodal assessments of peripheral muscle function (eg, isokinetic

Isokinetics is the gold standard for assessing muscular strength in

fatigue induced by concentric and eccentric exercises have been minimally investigated. Because sports injuries often occur at higher fatigue conditions 1 , 2 and isokinetic strength training is one of the most common interventions applied in sports environment to improve neuromuscular performance and

shoulder rotators imbalance. 17 – 19 These imbalanced shoulder rotators could not stabilize the humeral head to the center of glenoid, which contributes to increase the risk of impingement. 20 Isokinetic muscle strength testing is commonly used to evaluate eccentric and concentric peak torque of the

aims of this study were to investigate (1) SST, (2) AHD, and (3) stiffness/creep of shoulder girdle muscles after an isokinetic fatigue in overhead asymptomatic athletes. We hypothesized that postexercise fatigue in rotator cuff muscles would be the best approach to detect alterations in shoulder
