Self-Testing, Postural Evaluation, and Shoulder Impingement – Movement Debrief Episode 41

Movement Debrief Episode 41 is in the books. Below is a copy of the video for your viewing pleasure, and audio if you can’t stand looking at me.

Here is the set list:

  • Can you self diagnose why a muscle feels tight?
  • What are some good self tests to assess variability
  • can you appear “flexed” in one area but actually be extended?
  • Can we make accurate assessments regarding posture?
  • Why does impingement occur?
  • How does shoulder testing relate to the infrasternal angle?
  • What each of the shoulder tests I look at are attempting to assess?

If you want to watch these live, add me on Facebook or Instagram.They air every Wednesday at 8joc:30pm CST.

  1. about 12:38 you are talking about abd/add limitations. If limited abd but not add then do abd exrx. So when do you know or what if limitation is do to being at end range? I may be brain skidding right now but I could listen to a whole podcast on this topic.
