Because it is so frequently used, the shoulder is the most vulnerable joint in the body to injury. One instance of misuse could cause an acute injury, while frequent misuse could cause a chronic injury. Either kind may be permanent. Your shoulder works with the muscle of the upper back, and all must work together properly to prevent those injuries. However, several factors, including improper positioning, excessive force, and repetition, can disrupt your shoulder and back muscles from working together. You may not always be able to avoid these risk factors, but with this course you will learn how to protect your shoulders and minimize the damage they cause.
