Rehabilitation of the athlete's shoulder

Clin Sports Med. 2008 Oct;27(4):821-31. doi: 10.1016/j.csm.2008.07.001.


Optimal shoulder function is achieved through segmental activation along the kinetic chain. Alterations within the kinetic chain often contribute to shoulder injury. Therefore, a multi-factorial approach to shoulder rehabilitation, where the causes of shoulder pain as well as site of symptoms, should be implemented.
