Simplifying the Shoulder Complex
The shoulder complex is exactly that; complex! In this foundational biomechanics course, we start with both visual and experiential reviews of the shoulder region to increase your skills of observation and assessment. You learn to identify postural deviations, imbalances, and timing incongruities that are often underlying issues in the neck and shoulder. We practice simple exercises that help integrate the shoulder complex into torso for better overall support and dynamic movement.
- Review and expand your understanding of structural anatomy of the shoulder complex
- Understand how the different parts of the shoulder complex function together
- Learn an exercise conditioning sequence for the shoulder complex to build optimal mechanics
This course is one in a 3-part biomechanics series consisting of Build a Strong and Supple Spine, Power and Balance for Hip and Knee, and Simplifying the Shoulder Complex. The series explores the three major areas of the body that significantly impact overall function and focuses on how to observe movement mechanics in these areas so you can offer meaningful instruction on how to move better.
