Explore the anatomy and biomechanics involved in the normal healthy functioning of the shoulder girdle and discuss some of the interruptions that can occur and exercise progressions to restore optimal function in this lecture/demo, developed by the MERRITHEW™ team. First, the available ROM and typical movement patterns of the shoulder girdle are broken down analyzing scapular movement, humeral movement and relevant muscular action. Next, address some common abnormal or dysfunctional movement patterns. And finally, discover exercise progressions to rebuild normal muscle action and movement patterning as well as shoulder girdle exercises that can challenge and prepare for specific activities and enhance performance.
