    Why You Should Read This Article      

    As personal trainers, we often deal with clients suffering from shoulder pain and dysfunction. While assessing injury is beyond the personal trainer’s scope of service, understanding shoulder anatomy, injury mechanisms, and exercise modifications is essential to providing sound exercise technique in order to reduce the risk of injury in the shoulder. This knowledge will also help personal trainers when working with clients recently released from a physical therapist or other related healthcare professionals.

    In this article, the author provides a review of shoulder anatomy, shoulder function, and the factors that contribute to stability and function; a must read for anyone who is a personal trainer.
