Throwing Mechanics 101 - The first part of this course will describe examination and treatment of this complicated scapular issue that is more common than originally believed to be. Scapulothoracic crepitus is a sometimes painful and debilitating condition of the shoulder that oftentimes results in arthro-scopic bursal removal if not treated correctly. An in depth look at this condition will be presented followed by ways to en-hance scapular stability and control. The last part of the course will be related to evaluation of throwing mechanics which is oftentimes the last form of evaluation that needs to be done with overhead athletes as they are returning to sports. Phases of throwing and faults that can be seen and corrected will be discussed. - Robert Manske, PT, DPT, MPT, Med, SCS, ATC, CSCS | Read Speaker Bios |
