Techniques for the Shoulder Area

  • Laurie Hartman


Patients often present in osteopathic practice with dysfunctions and disorders of the glenohumeral articulation and the shoulder area generally. The shoulder can be described as a structure that is slung from the occiput, and tethered to the pelvis, so, like all other areas of the body, cannot be considered in isolation. The joint itself can manifest mechanical derangement as well as pathological conditions, particularly those involving the capsule and the surrounding muscles and tendons.
