March 18 – Ch 18 – shoulder
The shoulder is an extremely complicated region of the body
The sternal calvicular joint is the only connection between the upper
extremity and your axial skeleton. Its a weak joint and connected by sternal
clavicular ligaments
The acromioclavicular joint is a gliding joint and held together by 3 ligaments.
The acriomioclavicular ligament goes from the acromion to the clavicle.
Coracoacromial ligament goes from the coracoid process to the acromion
The glenohumeral joint is a ball and socket joint that has a lot of mobility. The
humerus inserts into the shall cavity of the glenoid fossa.
We need to fix a weak scapula before we can strengthen the shoulder
Joint which has a high degree of mobility but not without compromising
Involved in a variety of overhead activities relative to sport making it
susceptible to a number of repetitive and overuse type injuries
Movement and stabilization of the shoulder requires integrated function of
the rotator cuff muscles, joint capsule and scapula stabilizing muscles
Anatomy of the shoulder
3 groups of muscles
1.)Ones that originate on the axial skeleton and insert on the humerus
(latissimus dorsi and pec major)
2.)Ones that originate from the scapula to the humerus (include delts,
teres major, coracobrachialis and rotator cuff muscles)
3.)Those that originate from the axial skeleton to the scapula (include
levator scap, trap, rhomboids, and seratus anterior and posterior)
Rotator cuffs are responsible for internal and external rotation
Supraspinatus is involved in abduction
Muscles involved in external rotation – EXIT – external rotation
infraspinatus and teres minor

Prevention of Shoulder Injuries
Proper physical conditioning is key
Develop body and specific regions relative to sport
Strengthen through a full ROM
Focus on rotator cuff muscles in all planes of motion
Be sure to incorporate scapula stabilizing muscles (enhances base of function
for glenohumeral joint)
Warm-up should be used before explosive arm movements are attempted
Contact and collision sport athletes should receive proper instruction on
Protective equipment (acromion process should be protected)
Mechanics vs. Overuse injuries
Throwing Mechanics
Instruction in proper throwing mechanics is critical for injury prevention
The most common elbow injuries for throwing happens at the UCL (ulnar
collateral ligament)
Most common shoulder injuries happen in deceleration and follow through
phase of a throw. There should be natural follow through and avoid the snap
back after throwing
Windup Phase
First movement until ball leaves gloved hand
Lead leg strides forward while both shoulders abduct, externally rotate and
horizontally abduct
