In life, on the pole and in aerial, the shoulders need the perfect blend of flexibility, stability, and strength to be able to help you perform the many tasks that you ask of them. Complex needs mean a complex joint; that’s why we’ve dedicated this course to help you better understand the structure and function of the shoulders.
We’ll show you how the bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and more work together to enable you to move in a multitude of ways. We’ll look at what can go wrong when you haven’t got the balance quite right, covering postural issues and potential injuries. And, in the final units, we’ll look at a wide range of exercises that you can use to help keep your shoulders healthy.
