Treatment Benefits

Benefits of surgery are obvious: reversal of winging whether partial or complete has the potential to restore shoulder stability as well as strength.

In our series of patients, eighteen of twenty-two (82%) decompressions and neurolyses resulted in significant improvement of scapular winging. The average time to improvement was 5 days, the range being 1 day to 3 months. In patients less than 10 years out from onset of winging, 100% exhibited measurable improvement in winging.

Pain was a common concurrent condition (35%), and this was improved in 43% of those with pain.

Treatment of the suprascapular injury is directed at rehabilitation.

Shoulder instability persisted in 4 patients out of 19 following surgery, even in 2 patients who received some relief from the winging itself.
