Understanding Snapping Scapula Syndrome:

Snapping scapula syndrome is a shoulder condition characterized by audible or palpable snapping, clicking, or grinding sensations around the scapula (shoulder blade) during shoulder movement. This syndrome can range from being a minor nuisance to significantly impacting an individual’s daily activities and athletic performance. Precipitating factors may include muscle weakness or fatigue in the scapular stabilizers, postural abnormalities, or muscle inflexibility. In some cases, anatomical abnormalities around the scapula and posterior thorax may also contribute to the syndrome.
