Lesson Plan

The Shoulder is one of the most complex, mobile, and often injured joints in the body. With 5 articulations which determine mobility, stability and strength, it’s easy to see why the shoulder girdle can become a challenge whether you’re an elite athlete, your job depends on lifting or reaching or you just want to throw a ball or swim a few laps.

In this webinar we will discuss how to briefly assess the 5 joints of the shoulder girdle complex and suggest a hierarchy with regards to treatment and rehab exercises. Followed by an assessment of the fascial LINKS to the cervical, thoracic and sternum/rib cage.

Finally, we will illustrate the importance of specific anatomy and how to improve patient/athlete outcomes. Don’t ignore the specifics! Address the details.

Objectives: 
– Describe the relational anatomy of the 5 joints of the shoulder complex.
– Recognize how Micro-movement dictates Macro-movement.
– Identify shoulder pain and how to keep the shoulder mobile and increase ROM, if limited.
– Demonstrate 5 best exercises for shoulder stability and strength.
– Relate Fascia and Tensegrity and how they apply to the shoulder.
– Review Osteo-articular pumping introduction.
