Yergason's Test

The Yergason's Test is used to test for biceps tendon pathology, such as bicipital tendonitis and an unstable superior labral anterior posterior (SLAP) lesion.The patient should be seated or standing in the anatomical position, with the humerus in a neutral position and the elbow in 90 degrees of flexion in a pronated position. The patient is asked to externally rotate and supinate their arm against the manual resistance of the therapist produced by wrapping the hand around the distal forearm (just above the wrist joint).Yergason's Test is considered positive if the pain is reproduced in the bicipital groove and a biceps or a SLAP lesion is suspected., such as bicipital tendonitis and an unstable superior labral anterior posterior (SLAP) lesion.The patient should be seated or standing in the anatomical position, with the humerus in a neutral position and the elbow in 90 degrees of flexion in a pronated position.
