This program includes a review of shoulder biomechanics and will examine the influence of thoracic spine stiffness, muscle tightness and muscle control problems on shoulder girdle movement. Numerous intervention strategies will be discussed. There is an extensive lab component teaching Jenny McConnell's shoulder taping and muscle training techniques.
