Highlights

  • Individuals in the short and typical resting PMm length groups had similar amounts of PMm elongation during active and passive lengthening procedures.

  • These groups also had similar amounts of PMm length change, and scapulothoracic motion during overhead arm motions.

  • These results support the need for further research to better understand how resting PMm length influences PMm elongation and scapulothoracic motion.

  • Findings from this study should not be applied to individuals with shoulder pain as the study participants were free from shoulder pain at the time of the study.
