Scapular Orientation 2

25th July 2013

Last week we posted about scapular orientation - so what is optimum?

Here are some guidelines for optimising the neutral training region

Focusing on the three scapular rotations:

  • the acromion should be higher than the superior medial angle of the scapular (to minimise downward rotation)
  • the medial border of scapular should be against the ribcage (to minimise medial rotation - winging)
  • the inferior angle of scapular should be against the ribcage (to minimise forward tilt)

 

 

We also need to remember the three clavicular rotations.
