The Scapulocostal syndrome is a common musculoskeletal, pain-producing syndrome that mainly affects the posterior shoulder area, but, because of radiation, characteristics it can mimic numerous other conditions including cervical radicular pain, intrinsic shoulder joint disease and even visceral pain. It can be diagnosed clinically with a careful history and physical examination. There are no related blood test abnormalities or imaging abnormalities in the syndrome, but these tests may be useful in eliminating other entities from diagnostic consideration. The condition is related to poor posture and is common in typists, gymnasts and other sports people.
