Why is he wearing a shirt?


I just got numbness in hands and wrists with some tingling down both arms,left side worse. Have graves disease.

Hindu Sena INDIA

Sir.. this test is also for cervical extra rib ??

Mad Ashell

Numbness galore


The way I learned it, the test is performed with the therapist pushing the 1st rib down to stretch even more the scaleni and provocate symptoms. Would it be a variant? Or an older description ?


Made in to 2 minutes and had to drop my arms. I have been diagnosed with parson Turner syndrome with a normal emg.. wonder if I really have this? Can this cause lateral scapula winging?

Lu Yao

his left hand is turning black...if you pay attention :D

Grim Reaper

can you make a video on cervical and lumbar McKenzie techniques? it will really be appreciated!

Sandra Kitchen

I've been treating neurogenic TOS in my right side for over a year (about 4ish years of symptoms) and I just switched chiropractors (because I moved) and I had to be retested with this test. I failed hard within 45 seconds and my arm/hand didn't stop shaking for hours. Great test to prove how progressed the TOS is, but isn't the most fun when positive. I've still got a LONG road.

I learned a lot!!


Is it also called "Elevated arms stress test"?

sara ahmed

sir you say in video ischemia what you meaning ischemic pain did you mean mi or hypoxia localized in the hand?

abhilash reddy

Thank you sir ?

Pork Chop

my neurologist mentioned this. 6 years of brachial plexus nerve damage getting worse after work injury. I can barely lift my arm, severe rib pain, shoulder blade winging, emg confirmed brachial plexus damage, chest pain, and I tried this test and my hand started tingling as soon as I got in the position, and in less than a minute, starting with my pinky and ring finger, I couldn't move my hand at all. also have a bulging trapezius right over the brachial plexus on my injured side. 6 years of PT as well. all results from PT wiped out if I move my arm funny.


thanks teacher!!! It was very helpfull.

alexa van leer

I cudnt do it for 3 mins ????
No one can who is not involved in physical activities much

rob m

Thing is with this test won't your arms gt tired after performing this test for 3 minutes anyway so that wouldn't really be a positive, right?

Benjamin Sedlinger

After not even 1 Minute i feel slight pain and numbness in my left hand and pointing finger, cant even Imagine doing that for 3 minutes. Now its the question what this means

Martin Knaze

Hi i tried this and my left arm went white and numb after 1 min, i also have tightness in my chest and i have long lump above my right clavicle it feels like enlarged artery or something like that , also have pretty bad posture , forward head and shoulders , i workout regularly 3 years now but i still have all that from the start , any ideas please ?
