The Steadman Philippon Research Institute 2011 Annual Report

Snapping scapula syndrome is a rare condition of the shoulder that is poorly understood. Due to the lack of knowl- edge about this syndrome, many patients are misdiagnosed
or suffer with symptoms for many years. The most common complaint is pain when the shoulder blade rubs and clicks against the ribs. There are many factors that can cause a snapping scapula, including problems between the scapula (shoulder blade) and chest wall, muscle tears, fractures in the shoulder area, a bony lump on the shoulder blade, rheumatoid diseases and shoulder injuries.
X-rays and CT scans (3-D imaging) are used to show bone spurs or abnormalities of the scapula. MRI is also used to look for related conditions, such as scapular bursitis—where the soft tissues between the scapula and the chest wall are thick, irri- tated, or inflamed. Treatment starts with injections of steroids to provide pain relief, along with physical therapy to improve muscle strength. Unfortunately, some bone or tissue abnormali- ties do not respond to these treatments—in which case surgery may be necessary.
