PTQ 7.2 TRAINING CLIENTS WITH SHOULDER INJURY— MODIFICATIONS AND CONSIDERATIONS

Quiz CATB 0.2

The current trend in healthcare is leading to a quicker discharge from physical therapy and, for many clients, a quicker transition back to personal training. Thus, physical and occupational therapists are looking to collaborate with personal trainers who have a working knowledge of the shoulder to aide in the safe transition from rehabilitation to performance. As noted in NSCA’s Guide to Program Design, this collaboration will help prevent personal trainers and strength and conditioning coaches from being pushed outside their area of expertise and will ultimately help safely return clients and athletes to their respective fitness pursuits and sports. A knowledge of shoulder exercise modifications and progressions can help reduce the risk of re-injury and maximize performance.

Glenohumeral Extension and the Dip: Considerations for the Strength and Conditioning Professional

Quiz CATD 0.2

A significant number of resistance training injuries occur at the shoulder complex. However, there is a lack of research identifying predictive variables, which may increase the risk of these injuries. Certain exercises, such as those requiring the apprehension position (glenohumeral abduction with external rotation), have been investigated and found to be associated with shoulder pain and injury. However, there are additional exercises or positions that may also be associated with increased injury risk. The position of end-range glenohumeral extension, particularly as it pertains to a dip, is a vulnerable position that may have previously been overlooked.
