In this video we explain the six different articulations of the shoulder joint and how to effectively perform a CAR (controlled articular rotation) from a standing, seated, quadruped and prone position.

How to Learn the Shoulder CAR

How to Learn the Shoulder CAR

The basic articulations:

  • Flexion and Extension
  • Abduction and Adduction
  • Internal and External Rotation

The Shoulder CAR (controlled articular rotation):

  1. Start standing or elevated in a seated position
  2. Keeping the arm straight, externally rotate the shoulder to end-range while taking it into full adduction
  3. Maintaining end-range external rotation, move the shoulder into flexion
  4. Begin to internally rotate the shoulder moving into abduction
  5. Continue internally rotating while moving into end-range extension and holding full rotation
  6. Maintain rotation and take the arm along side the body
  • Always express current end ranges
  • Repeat again or in the opposite direction if desired
