My guy is still rehabbing his shoulder after tearing his labrum during a basketball game.
The glenohumeral joint is most vunerable in abduction and external rotation, and so in addition to loading his thoracic spine to improve left rotation, we have begun to dynamically stabilize this shoulder complex while also workign endurance.
The following exercises were used in order to dynamically strengthen the shoulder complex.
top left: rotational lunge with same side UE rotational reach, utilzing Indian clubs to overload the shoulder into the horizontal abduction and external rotation, both which stress the GH joint.
Top right: indian clubs, working on quality of movement, and using the extension as a lever to again load the shoulder through dynamic movement, which also is great for endurance
Bottom Left: another, move advanced schoulder complex movement. it's progressed because of the added internal and external rotation.
Bottom Right turkish get up. This is one tough motion, and focuses on overall tension of the body while tying in the lower extremity and balance. It's become one of my go-to's for developing system wide strength.
ensuring that a rehab program focuses on the proper strength, endurance and motion that is actually interesting to the patient is important!
make sure to rule the tool, and not let the tool rule you.
