Attention Overhead Lifters!

Lifting overhead, whether for training, for sport or for work-related activities, is a movement that regularly leads to shoulder injury and dysfunction if not performed correctly.   I was directed to this interesting demonstration of lifting overhead under fluoroscopy through Dr. Jeff Cubos who has a great blog on evidence based training and rehabilitation.

The Right Shoulder Joint

This demonstration of the mechanics of the shoulder joint was posted by David Whitley.  Watch the videos and then consider the effects of repeatedly performing that overhead lift without correctly packing the shoulder.
