Georg Lajtai, Christian W A Pfirrmann, Gernot Aitzetmüller, Christof Pirkl, Christian Gerber & Bernhard Jost

The typical, fully competitive player has subjectively unrecognized decreased strength of external rotation and frequent unspecific shoulder pain. Therefore, abnormal clinical and imaging findings in the beach volleyball player should be interpreted with care.
