๐Ÿ‘‰ Hey everybody! It’s Michael Ricchiuto MPT, EMT-P with Physical Therapy Now. Today we’re going to talk about shoulder mobility and there’s a simple, quick, and easy way to get shoulder mobility using a dowel rod or a broom handle or anything that’s like a stick a hockey stick a lot of the times. I’m going to demonstrate a really good way to get all of your shoulder mobility to warm up.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Okay! So we’re going to take the stick and first we’re going to go through all the motions of shoulder movement.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Now mobility shouldn’t take you 20 minutes to be able to perform something. It should really only take a few minutes.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Make sure you have full motion ofย  your shoulder and by watching the video you will accomplish this. There are 6 major motions of the (glenohumeral joint) portion of theย  shoulder. This is the “ball-in-the-socket” portion of the shoudler. These directions are flexion/extension, abduction/adduction, and internal/external rotation. We will exclude accessory motions such as spin and superior/inferior translation of the glenohumeral joint.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Click on the video and watch how to make sure you are maximizing all of these motions before you begin your exercise activity. A shoulder has to have soft tissue extensibility of the 4 joints that complete the shoulder complex, it must have full osteo and arthrokinematic movementย  of these joints and proper blood flow and nervous supply for a shoulder to perform optimum movement and longevity.
