UPCOMING LECTURES WORKSHOPS


Biomechanics of the Shoulder Complex

Description
Shoulders demystified! Shoulders are complicated, and balancing mobility with stability and strength is challenging. Become familiar with the biomechanics of the shoulder complex, including: the local anatomy, the mechanics of the region, some common injuries and patterns of dysfunction found in this area along with the interplay of the shoulder complex with more distant areas of the body. The confusion often present with this region of the body and with how it relates to other areas is common and can lead set-backs. Understanding these relationships more clearly gives insight into the body's functionality, and/or lack thereof and the use of various asana for balance, correction and healing.

Lecture Objectives

  • To deepen the understanding of the anatomy and function of the structures of the shoulder complex.
  • To became familiar with common dysfuctions of and relating to the shoulder complex and strategies for their correction.
