This module covers the synovial joints of the shoulder complex in addition to the scapulothoracic “joint”.  Arthrokinematics and the concept of open-packed position are reviewed (these are covered in detail in previous modules on joints) and some tablework ideas for adding in nuances for joints are demonstrated. Repositioning the scapula is a new and useful addition to our compression repertoire. Anatomical precautions are considered. Movement explorations include feeling the joints individually, as well as finding the connections between the shoulder complex and the rest of the body.
