This course thoroughly examines the shoulder complex and how mechanics, muscle function and exercise demonstrate the synchrony of the anatomical components of both the muscular and skeletal structures of the shoulder girdle, including the scapula and glenohumeral joints, as well as the muscles utilized to move these joints. Dr. Pink integrates and discusses electromyographic and cadaver data supporting the biomechanical data, and she describes the shoulder in both static and dynamic conditions. The course concludes with a series of electromyographically-proven optimal exercises for the shoulder group.
