Available training projects

Workshop: Osteopathic approach to the athlete’s shoulder

The course, through a frontal lesson, introduces to an absolutely functional anatomy that is closely connected with the biomechanics and the clinic of cyclic sports gestures, such as throws (with or without tools) performed by the upper arm. This happens through descriptions that emphasize the detail and the functionalist aspects and putting them in correlation with phylogenetic, biomechanical and neurological aspects.
