A 27-year-old male and indoor soccer goalkeeper presented at the private practice of the orthopaedic surgeon with pain in the posterior right shoulder. Two months previously, he felt sudden pain and loss of function in his shoulder when throwing a ball, more specifically during ball release. After 6 weeks of rest, there was almost complete recovery. He started playing indoor soccer again and fell on his right shoulder with relapse of the pain. He never experienced dislocation of the shoulder. Clinically there was full range of motion of his shoulder and no muscle atrophy. Resistance tests of the triceps brachii muscle caused pain in the posterior shoulder.
