Course Description

This course is designed to improve a movement professional’s understanding of the structures of the shoulder girdle. A large part of the course is devoted to understanding the anatomy and physiology of the shoulder girdle and how this relates to how we work in the studio as a movement professional.

Course participants will gain a better understanding of how certain exercises relate to the upper limb and also provide participants with the capacity to critically analyse specific pathologies.

The pathologies and conditions explored include:
// Collar bone fracture
// Frozen shoulder
// Rotator cuff tears
// shoulder impingement

We also look at strategies for exercises and movements that will help facilitate recovery and minimise the risk of further injuries. We discuss strategies for working with people with shoulder girdle pain issues that can easily be implemented straight away in the studio. The lessons provide clear instructions on cueing in order to help teachers support their clients in a safe and supported way.

Who is this course for

Any movement teachers wanting to expand their knowledge of the shoulder girdle and its components. This can be a good introductory course to the anatomy and physiology of the shoulder, but also works as a refresher for teachers who would like to build their confidence in dealing with conditions in this area.
