Abstract

GJH and GJHs are frequent musculoskeletal conditions in the general adult population. Both self-reported conditions, especially GJHs, are followed by severely increased Odds Ratios of musculoskeletal injuries and reduced HRQoL. Despite no formal diagnosis in the adolescent population, but clinically verified GJHs, significant strength, work and fatigue deficits with reduced muscle activity during shoulder medial rotation were seen, potentially inherent with greater risk of shoulder injury. Future development and testing the effect of targeted exercise programs for this group, including establishment of research funding to accomplish this, is therefore important.
