Shoulder Limitations, Breathing Starting Positions, and a Trainer’s Role in Persistent Pain – Movement Debrief Episode 83

Movement Debrief Episode 83 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:

  • How can shoulder horizontal abduction and internal rotation be limited at the same time?
  • What interventions would be useful for someone with this type of limitation?
  • What position should someone with heavily flared ribs start?
  • Are there beneficial positions to start wide or narrow infrasternal angles?
  • Can a personal trainer be a useful person in helping someone with persistent pain?
