Anatomy and Kinesiology for Shoulder Stability and Mobility (Recorded Webinar)

  • Movement efficiency in the upper extremity and specifically the shoulder requires a unique relationship between stability and mobility within the lumbar, thoracic, scapulo-thoracic and gleno-humeral regions. Muscle imbalance alters key physiological, neurological and mechanical properties leading to musculoskeletal overload, overuse and potential injury. Effective programming for upper extremity movement (push, pull and rotational) necessitates a comprehensive understanding of the stability-mobility relationship, a detail often overlooked by personal trainers and other fitness professionals.

    In this recorded webinar, originally broadcast September 28, 2010 and hosted by ACE Exercise Physiologist Fabio Comana, you’ll briefly review the kinesiology of the upper extremity and stability-mobility requirements of each region, and gain a programming template for your clients to promote movement efficiency within the upper extremity. Enjoy the benefits of an ACE instructor in the comfort of your own home through this convenient online recorded webinar.

    Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

    • Explain relevant biomechanical principles associated with movement of the shoulder girdle.
    • Describe the respective need for stability and mobility at the lumbar and thoracic spine, scapulo-thoracic region, and gleno-humeral joint.
    • Define the integrated roles of each joint in movement.
    • Identify movement compensations and identify restorative exercise for mobility and stability.
    • Design exercise and movements with both progressions and regressions to promote stability and mobility within the upper extremity.

    I actually like this one!

    While the information was valuable, it was very difficult to digest without the use of a video. This presentation is all audio and the slides didn't do the material justice.

    Waste of time and money. Extremly poor and boring presentation, too much talk without practical examples.

    This really should have been a video. At the very least it needs a lot more anatomical diagrams.

    A great detailed course, very informative. Could do with better slides of the joints, muscles etc. and the actual movements that the narrator speaks of. All round happy with the info. Only thing, I completed the exam and tried to check my questions that were incorrect, when I selected the 'why' tab or any other tab it didnt show the correct answer. So i still dont know why my answer is wrong or even what the right answer is

    The information was very good and its an important topic, but it was REALLY hard to imagine some of the exercises without more diagrams or videos. I had to get out text books and search online to understand what the instructor meant when he described things.

    Info good. Visual bad.

    At the end of the quiz though, it did not give me the correct answer to my incorrect quiz question #10. That would have been helpful.

    This was my first Webinar with ACE. Instructor - fantastic. Would have loved more pics of exercises. I did not have time to finish in one sitting and when I came back the second time I was only able to get audio portion. I was unable to see the course for review. I was unable to print outline from screen, so too much time was spent writing out material. If ACE could fix these problems course would be even better. Would recommend mainly for material and instructor.
