In the first of video in this series we explored the anatomy and movements available at the shoulder and scapulocostal joints. In this video (the 2nd in the series), we explore how movements of the shoulder joint should be coupled with movements of the scapulocostal joint to ensure safe, efficient biomechanics at the shoulder joint complex that will help prevent injury.
In subsequent videos we'll explore:
- shoulder impingement syndrome, and three ways to help prevent it
- verbal cues and hands-on assists that might sabotage scapulohumeral rhythm within a variety of postures, and alternative cues and assists that will help support this rhythm and create more stability
