Shoulder injury

ShoulderThe shoulder has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. It is our shoulders that allow us to put our hands where they need to be for work, play, and all of our daily activities. To manage this, the shoulder has to have the right balance of strength, flexibility, and stability. Loss of this balance can lead to pain and injury. Maintaining this balance through exercises aimed at stretching and strengthening can help avoid shoulder problems.

The rotator cruff muscles

Without learned muscle control, any overhead activity, let alone just lifting the arm, would be impossible. The muscle group for this control is the rotator cuff (RC) muscles – the infraspinatus, supraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis muscles. The muscles primarily designed to position the scapula for overhead movement are the trapezius, and serratus anterior. The larger and more powerful muscles that generate movements of the arm are the deltoids, latissimus dorsi, and pectoralis major.

ancle-injuryAnkle injuries are among the most common injuries in sport.  Ankle sprain is the most common injury in virtually all epidemiological studies. Being the first part of the kinetic chain to withstand the impact of running, twisting, pushing off and landing, the ankle and foot must, within fractions of a second, distribute the impact higher up the chain in complex flexion, extension, eversion and inversion movements of the talo-crural joint and supination and pronation at the mid-foot. The faster the movement, the more important is the balancing act and proprioceptive function of the ankle.
