Shoulder Pain/ Limitations

The shoulder is the most flexible and probably the most mobile joint in the entire body. This means that stability will be a huge goal. Familiarize yourself with the bones that make up the two joints that give the shoulder its incredible movement.
Shoulder Joint Limitations: We do not share the same anatomy, and therefore there are a number of ways a shoulder can look. We have all maintained different levels of activity. People who have played sports may have deeply rooted dysfunction from repeated patterns of movement, ie. pitchers. Some people have scapulae that are raised (chicken wings) and others have very deeply set shoulders with limited range of motion. However, there are some basic requirements for a healthy shoulder joint. A healthy balance of protraction and retraction is what creates the neutral position of the shoulder girdle and joint.
