Functional Biomechanics of the Shoulder

Last week I attended one of Ian and Gina's workshops. It was about the shoulder .
Really enjoyed the day , very informative . A good mix of practical work and A&P.      Justine Blaber (Personal Trainer)

This one day course looks in depth at the biomechanics of the shoulder. It aims to demystify the shoulder complex and explore how the soft tissue structures interact to create movement.

Health Professionals

This course takes you beyond a basic level of structure understanding. It gives a true understanding of what is occurring during the standard joint and muscle tests for the shoulder.  It explores firing patterns and the interaction of pelvis position, posture and the lower body, with the shoulder. 

By the end of the course you will not only understand how to assess and treat complex conditions such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and clavicular fractures; but you will fully appreciate what is occurring at a deep anatomical level during these conditions and therefore how to get to the root cause of shoulder dysfunction to ensure the problem does not return.

Fitness Professionals

This workshop will enable you to train the upper body with confidence. Whether training a healthy client or one with shoulder pain. Feel confident training clients who have had a broken clavicle, dislocated shoulder or torn tendons. You will leave fully understanding the structures involved and how to train in a way that can not only help their recovery, but will ensure they don't re-injure themselves in the future.

Course content

Theory

  • Overview of the bones, ligaments and muscles of the shoulder.

  • The glenohumeral joint (GHJ) structure and function. Implications for injury, treatment and training.

  • Scapulohumeral rhythm and what it tells us about shoulder function.

  • Scapular structure and function. Implications for injury, treatment and training.

  • The acromioclavicula (ACJ), Sternoclavicular Joint (SCJ), Sternocostal joint & Costovertabral joints structure and function. Implications for injury, treatment and training.

  • Clavicular muscles anatomy, function and implications for injury, treatment and training.

  • Nerves of the upper limbs, mobilisations and rehabilitation

  • Shoulder position and posture and the effect on the whole body. 

Practical

  • Assessment of Bony landmarks and positions. 

  • Joint assessment for Capsulitis, Arthritis, Labral Tear & Subluxation. How to treat, rehabilitate and train people with dysfunction.

  • Assessment of GHJ position. Including muscle tests, hands on treatment techniques, rehabilitation and training considerations.

  • Assessment of Scapula position, movement and muscle activation. Including muscle tests, hands on treatment techniques, rehabilitation and training considerations.

  • Assessment of clavicluar position, including muscle tests, hands on treatment techniques, rehabilitation and training considerations..
