Inner Circle Updates
In this month’s Inner Circle webinar, I am going to show you a live demonstration of how I assess scapular position and movement. I’ve had past talks on how to assess scapular position and how to treat scapular dyskinesis, however I want to put it all together with a demonstration of exactly how I perform a full scapular movement assessment and go over things I am looking for during the examination.
I’ll be filming the video and posting later this month. Inner Circle members will get an email when it is posted, but if you aren’t a member now is the time to join and access all my past webinars too:

NATA Evidence Based CEUs

Stephen Thomas, PhD, ATC, who runs the Sports Medicine Research website I often share, has a few programs available from Human Kinetics that meet the new requirements:
New Thoughts From Dean Somerset
Dean Somerset recently wrote about 5 things that he admits to being wrong about, and more importantly, how’s he’s changed. I like articles like this as I see many professionals either stuck in their way or spending more time defending their views instead of being open minding to new ideas. It is very important to keep and open mind and ALWAYS keep learning. If you find yourself defending your position more than evolving your position, you are probably doing it wrong. Thanks for sharing Dean:
