Can you move? Hips and shoulders should be very mobile, but they often lock up, creating a cycle of improper movement and injury. Functional activities, like walking, require extension, flexion and rotation of the hips and shoulders. If hindered, the nervous system will alter the spine or gait. Learn to identify these patterns and address these areas with self-myofascial release. This approach can create myofascial relationships that optimize movement, prevent injury and prepare the body.
- Explain the basic anatomy of the hips and shoulders.
- Explain the circumstances under which the body needs soft-tissue work.
- Compare mobility and stability needs of clients.
- Demonstrate basic hip and shoulder assessments.
- Describe situations that may require doctor’s referral.
- Design and implement the best foam rolling program for hip and/or shoulder dysfunction.
