The article discusses the contrast of current evidence-based knowledge of shoulder examination with Ernest Amory Codman's observation, which shows a table in his classical book "The Shoulder, Codman" to assist the clinicians in determining various shoulder conditions. It notes that revision of the version of Codman's table is to show the utility of statistical analysis. Appendix and references of the article is also offered.
