Shoulder issues can sideline an athlete and make life difficult for anyone. This lecture/demo-style workshop, created by the Merrithew™ team, takes an in-depth look at the shoulder complex and discusses post-rehabilitative exercise options using a variety of Pilates equipment.

Exercises will be targeted to restoring normal movement patterns, improve ROM, address scapula-humeral rhythm, develop strength and prepare the client to return to daily activities or sport performance.
