Neer Test

Neer was a pioneer in shoulder arthroplasty, and developed the first practical and widely used prosthesis for the shoulder..Neer described a diagnostic sign for impingement performed by passively flexing the patient's arm until pain is felt in the anterior or anterolateral proximal arm. Neer's test is an exam that assesses if shoulder pain and limited range of motion may be caused by an impingement.The Neer test is positive if this motion causes pain. Modified form of the Neer test has an accuracy rate of 90.6% for identifying subacromial impingement syndrome (SAIS)..Neer described a diagnostic sign for impingement performed by passively flexing the patient's arm until pain is felt in the anterior or anterolateral proximal arm.
