THIS MONTH’S TOPIC

Scapulothoracic and Scapulohumeral articulations

Bridging the gap (literally!) between the thoracic spine and shoulder, the shoulder blade becomes this month’s focus. Here, we’ll consider it’s interactions with the thorax (ribcage) and arm (humerus) as well as its other important connections. This is a really important area for spine and shoulder issues and includes posture as well! Who knew that a shoulder blade could be so important?
