Take a look at the right scapula:
Tender Coracoid Process
Prominent Inferior Angle
Downwardly rotated to boot.
Kibler took a lot of poetic license on the SICK scapula term.
This is our JV catcher, met him for the first time today with complaints of a "popping" R shoulder during throwing/batting. He is anteriorly unstable. He has barely done any throwing, it is the pre-season. A lot of the stuff we see on the high school level are remnants of poorly designed programs of the past. 12 year olds playing on 3 different little league teams. Physical education is 3 hours a week with the personal trainer. Now it is our problem.
High school ATC's, let's make sure the buck stops with us. Let's not send them up to the college or minor leagues with this stuff. The baseball player's back should be ripped by the time you get through with them. The thrower's 10 is fine to milk out post game soreness, but you'll need to be a lot more creative to fix these.
