Get Massage Smart thanks every individual involved on the 3D Anatomy Lyon projects, please see credits below.  As we continue to look at the pectoral shoulder complex we begin to expand our understanding of how structure influences functionality.  The focus of this first video is the full range of motion of the pectoral girdle and the multiple joint structures that allow for this range of motion.

For those of us that are soft tissue therapists and health care providers it has become our therapeutic challenge to understand that each individual will develop their own unique pathway to motion within the evolution of the shoulder unit.  Many have no doubt understood the enormous role that the scapulothoracic joint plays within the shoulders full range of motion.  The work of the 3D Anatomy Lyon team provides a look at the skeletal form in animated motion then additional video animations proceed to high light the functionality of the muscles.

The Netter Musculoskeletal System, Volume 6, Part I - Upper Limb offer clear illustrations, photos, organized text, descriptions of various upper extremity diagnoses and treatment - a superb anatomy book and much more.
