Setting the Shoulder Girdle for Scoliosis

There is a term frequently used in exercise:  “Setting the Pelvis”. This simply means: Let’s activate the muscles of the hips in a specific way to move them to a more neutral (or better) position–to balance them. We are going to use that term here to refer to the shoulder girdle.

The shoulder girdle includes 3 bones:

  • Collarbone (clavicle),
  • Upper arm (humerus) and
  • Shoulder blade (scapula).

Here we begin to “set the shoulder girdle” by applying strengthening techniques to the muscles surrounding these three bones of the shoulder joint.
