The Importance of good Shoulder Stability for Injury Prevention & Sporting Performance || Battersea Physio

Today we look at the scapular, or shoulder blade, and discuss the effects of winging. This is where the inside line of the shoulder blade lifts off the ribs below, showing a prominent bone line along the inside line, nearest to the spine. Essentially this is not a major issue however if left untreated and able to continue to wing then you are setting yourself up for potential shoulder problems.

Howwever if you are in a sporting environment, then this will affect your power. Swimmers will lose the pull through the water, tennis players will lose the power in their shots, cricketers will lack power in their throw or bowling action. These small areas can be addressed to re-balance your shoulder blade and allow you to unlock your full potential.
