A traditional approach to shoulder rehabilitation commonly involves the correction of muscle imbalances and regional dysfunctions through the utilisation of isolation exercises for scapula stabilisation and rotator cuff strengthening. One of the primary aims of rehabilitation being enhanced proximal stability plus centralisation of the humeral head in the glenoid fossa.
In this lecture, we will explore an integration approach to shoulder strengthening which moves away from isolation exercises and instead recognises the entire kinetic chain.
The Kinetic Link Training (KLT) approach to shoulder rehabilitation reinforces normal full-body movement patterns from the early stages of rehabilitation, and never neglects the contributions of the trunk and lower limb musculature as contributors to normal upper limb functional movements.
In this lecture, you will learn a selection highly effective rehabilitation exercises which can be delivered to a vast array of upper limb rehabilitation clients.
