Shoulder Compensations for Hockey Players

By June 4, 2020 No Comments – Toronto (Annex Area – Bloor and Spadina) Registered Physiotherapist Eric Hammer talks about some common compensations which occur when rehabbing a shoulder injury. For shoulder movements inwards and outwards (Internal and external rotation), patients may overuse muscles in the shoulder blade (ie., terms major/minor) or the pecs. For over head movements, some patients may overuse the upper traps for abduction and flexion. It’s important for hockey players to strengthening the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder appropriately in order to stabilize the shoulder joint. website – Subscribe for free video on improving posture – Grounding Exercises for Therapists –….
