Hello everyone,

I am having serious difficulties finding a translation for 'piston huméral'. It's some kind of movement of the shoulder performed in physio after rotator cuff repair.

Here's the sentence:

Pathologie: capsulite rétractile
1°) Récupération de la mobilité passive
- Apprentissage du placement actif de l'épaule (sonnette interne et piston huméral)
- Mobilisation passive dans le plan de l'omoplate de la position du décubitus vers la position assise

Any ideas? Something to do with going up and down?

Many thanks
