Shoulder Rehab Insight!

Become more dynamic

Adam Meakins from the sports physio blog:

During shoulder flexion the external rotators of the cuff … are highly active. However, on extension movements its the exact opposite, the internal rotators are highly active and the external rotators are quiet ... start considering scapula rehab exercises as actually rotator cuff rehab in disguise.

EMG research from the 2011 study by Professor Ginn and her team allow us to become more dynamic in our treatment and rehabilitation of the shoulder. Let’s move forward with our treatment and engage the patient with stimulating exercises.
