Are you a performance coach or sports medicine professional who works with overhead throwing athletes?
Most overhead throwing athletes suffer from some type of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS), which is caused by tissue restrictions around the nerves, veins, and arteries passing through the thoracic outlet. TOS can result in severe pain, numbness, and limited range of motion in an athlete’s throwing arm, but it can be extremely difficult to identify and address.
This two-hour, information-packed educational course presented by Eric Cressey, president of Cressey Sports Performance provides an unprecedented deep dive into understanding, identifying, and treating TOS. Featuring detailed anatomical animations, guided dissections, practical exercises, and powerful case studies, it takes you under the skin to give athletic trainers, S&C coaches, physical therapists, and sports medicine professionals essential knowledge about how to identify and resolve this potentially debilitating condition.
Educational highlights include:
- Identifying TOS symptoms and underlying causes
- Understanding shoulder, arm, and upper body anatomy through guided dissections
- Assessing postural imbalances and movement patterns that indicate TOS
- Non-surgical intervention and targeted exercise strategies for addressing TOS
