The shoulder girdle and its relationship with its neighbouring structures

The shoulder girdle is the bridge between the periphery of the arms and the axial system of the thorax and spine, that includes the neck.

Being like a belt, the shoulders can facilitate or limit effective coordination between the periphery and the centre due to a myofascial and joints imbalance.

Who is this course for

If you want to deepen your understanding of the anatomy and functional aspects of the shoulders and its relationships to neighbouring structures: the neck, the arms, the thorax.

CE Credits: 3 Required Intermediate Credits towards the Advanced Training


You’ll learn about

We will study the implications of shoulder disorganisation with the related structures and the other way around: how dis-balance at the arms, neck and thorax might affect the shoulder.

We will learn specific palpation and manipulation techniques for resolving these issues to bring the whole system to higher function and ease.

This class will include lectures, demonstrations, practicum’s, and exchange of sessions.
