Shoulder Mobility Importance

The shoulder is by in large the most complicated joint with the greatest range of motion. However, like the old saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility,” the shoulder is also perhaps the joint most vulnerable to injury. The shoulder is a particularly tricky joint because it has to provide adequate stability while maintaining full mobility to prevent injury and maximize function and performance. This is where scapular stability comes in. Proper and efficient scapular stability allows for proper retraction, and elevation of the shoulders while staying strong and providing the much needed support in your rotator cuffs. When you achieve scapular stability, you will be able to maintain strength, flexibility, and full range of motion to enable you to perform any and all of the wide range of functions our wonderful shoulders provide.
