Activity: Scapular setting: serratus anterior activation

D30-4

Summary:

Basic serratus anterior stabilization exercise

Description:

  • standing upright, keeping the arm straight, flex the shoulder bringing the arm up to 90 degrees (the horizontal)
  • "set" the scapula (shoulder blade), meaning keeping it snug against the ribcage, ie: not winging out from the back
  • ensure the scapula stays at a relatively neutral height, not overly depressed or shrugged up towards the head
  • maintaining the "set" of the scapula, lift the arm to approx. 45 degrees above the horizontal, then return to the start position.
  • repeat as instructed
  • NOTE: this exercise can be done back against a wall, to provide a tactile feedback as to the position of the scapula
