Sabina demonstrates 3 tests that can help you understand your clients with shoulder pain: 1) the Neer Assessment for rotator cuff issues; 2) the Gerber Test which indicates pain in the subscapularis muscle; 3) and the Hawkins Test to assess whether there is an impingement in the joint. Sabina then shows 2 exercises that she commonly gives to clients with these issues to both stretch and strengthen the areas without risk to the joint. For lessons and teacher training, visit Sabina at True Pilates Rome.
