Years of experience and application have revealed the shoulder is often compromised through everyday life; excessive sitting, dehydration, overloading of tissue, repetitive movement, poor breathing, occupational hazards or trauma and collision.
This can lead to decreased shoulder stabilization in motion, diminished strength, emotional challenges and possible compensation and discomfort in other regions of the body (neck/back/chest).
The tissues surrounding the shoulder will initially require freeing or unglueing; this can be executed through using a tool (fascial freeing) or subtle rhythmic motion (fascial mobilizers). Once the shoulder has regained confidence and communication to major complexes (hip/thorax/ankle) that support it, limited force (everyday strength) can be initiated. This amount of force will be dependent upon your threshold of comfort.
The program comprises 5 sections, you can choose an exercise/s from any section and incorporate it into your existing program or purely use it as a default tool to help you move and feel better.? Alternatively you can use the entire program as a workout, which will enhance your goal and capacity to move and feel better.
- Fascial Freeing (A process that unglues stuck tissues)
- Facial Mobilizers (Subtle, rhythmical motion that improves movement)
- Strength (Movements that mimic the challenges of life)
- Drills (Challenges reconditioning the body for force)
- Games. (Emotional and Mental re-set)
OD on Movement recommends consulting an Allied Health Practitioner (of the clients choice) prior to starting any program when; intense pain exists, prior?trauma to the region has been acknowledged or client doubt is present.
