Shoulder Girdle Mobility and Push/Pull Strengthening Exercises

In the video below you will see osteopath Abbas Din of Doctors of Osteopathy (Camberwell) demonstrating a number of mobility and strength exercises for the shoulder girdle that integrates whole body movements rather than isolated muscle strategies.  As osteopaths we too are at risk of developing musculoskeletal strains and sprains due to work practices, postures, loads etc.  Therefore we realise it is important that we train to keep ourselves fit to maintain a high level of function in the body so that it can deal with the everyday stresses of work.
