Shoulder Mobility Reaching Corrective Exercises
The shoulder mobility reaching movement pattern demonstrates whether or not you can easily move each arm through its maximal range of motion. It tests shoulder mobility, shoulder blade stability, and thoracic spine mobility and dynamic stability. If you cannot score perfectly (3) on this, running and swimming movements will be adversely affected.
In addition to the reaching movement pattern, this test includes a separate pass (-) or fail (+) test for shoulder impingement pain. If you fail the impingement test, do not perform any of the corrective exercises until the pain issue has been evaluated by a medical professional and that pain is gone.
