Now we move back to the shoulder. Shoulder pain is probably the biggest source of problems I deal with as a clinician. Generally when the shoulder hurts, the hardest movement to perform is going to be overhead pressing. Just like in the rest of the movements we spoke about earlier, if we understand the mechanics of the lifts we can make a modification to eliminate pain. Check out the video below to see how we like to modify pressing for people with shoulder pain.
There it is. Next time you get an athlete with shoulder pain during pressing give some of these modifications a shot.
