The purpose of this study was to update, discuss the accumulated knowledge regarding clinical evaluation and physical therapy rehabilitation for scapular dyskinesis. The aim of this study was to educate health professionals and athlete regarding scapular dyskinesis to make them aware of its consequences in affecting shoulder kinematics. Normal movement of scapula should not be compromised. Its deficiency results in restriction in shoulder joint functions. Mr. X, 26-year-old volleyball player with shoulder pain, was clinically assessed with scapular dyskinesis and rehabilitated through conservative physical therapy at three levels for 8 weeks. A single case study design was used to assess and rehabilitate the volleyball player with scapular dyskinesis. Scapular dyskinesis alters normal position and kinematics of scapula. Hence, it needs early diagnosis with appropriate clinical examination to rehabilitate. Physiotherapy plays a major role in it.
