Shoulder dysfunction is commonplace in training, specifically for overhead movement. Our sedentary lifestyle brings on a ray of issues due to repetitive actions. With this program, we address proper mobility of the regions above and below the shoulder and restore optimal scapular function. Let's first assess the main functions.
Let’s first assess the main functions of the shoulder complex.
- The shoulder complex is an integral part of the core.
- Improve static and dynamic posture
- Create stability and bracing to maintain torso rigidity for complex/compound movements
- Protect the neck, shoulders, spine, hips, and pelvic floor during loaded complex movements
- Improve the integrity and distribution of forces across the kinetic chain
- Engage and prevent specific movements (muscle/joint)
Janda’s approach to the evaluation and management of chronic musculoskeletal pain focuses on the importance of the central nervous system in mediating chronic pain through neuromuscular imbalance.
At MPower, we apply Janda’s Principle to breakdown workouts. Immediate effects can be felt aided by props to increase proprioception. Keeping the movements simple and precise but taking the shoulder complex out initially to improve awareness. Balancing the muscle relationships within the body and teaching it how to properly support itself with the correct muscles, it is a long-term solution to a permanent fix.

HYPERMOBILE LIKE ME?
If you have followed my story, being Hypermobile has brought its own set of complications towards my training. Pilates has helped get me to recover and live 98% pain free. Many struggle to maintain a ‘neutral’ position which Pilates requires throughout the session. If the Pelvis hasn’t got full mobility, you will not be able to achieve a ‘neutral spine’. This also applies if you need a shoulder fix. Overall, the majority of work is loaded on your lower back as a consequence!
Many train at the gym not addressing misalignment! This can be any joint from the ankle up. If you want a strong core and want to live pain free, this is the perfect for you. You might not be in pain but struggle with ROM, balance, proprioception. You just enjoy the gym, even Yoga or Pilates and struggle to get the correct alignment.
Hypomobilies will in turn have their own challenges to overcome. What do you want to improve on? Or are you fed up with lifting incorrectly? Worried or potential injury due to posture compensation
