Dave Hammons – Injury Prevention and Treatment

Glenohumeral Internal Rotation Deficit (GIRD)

Dr. Hammons study investigated glenohumeral internal rotation deficit (GIRD) in overhead athletes and aimed to determine whether the pron-passive stretching technique may be useful in preventing GIRD. During this passive stretching technique, the shoulder is moved into internal rotation while the scapula is stabilized by a clinician.
