I challenge anyone to show before and after pictures where scapular winging was corrected though exercise. A person can strengthen surrounding musculature (and that might correct a problem) but doing so won’t do a thing to change the position of the scapula.
What the heck are you getting at? How does someone correct scapular winging?
You can’t. People are not perfectly symmetrical. When someone has an injury to the area they go to a doctor or therapist who identifies the asymmetry. They call it Scapular Winging and tell the person that it is the problem or a symptom of the problem and needs to be fixed.
Fortunately, many times the exercises to “fix” the scapular winging are helpful to the injury but they do nothing for the “winging”.
As a disclaimer to my belief, I’m sure there are cases of physical trauma like a car accident that causes scapular winging. In such a case there would also a host of other shit going on that could include spinal alignment, rib-head, broken ribs, dislocated shoulder, etc. Surgery or Chiro care might be needed. I’m sure 95% of the “Scapular Winging” we hear about is complete bullshit.[/quote]
Scapular winging is not necessarily asymmetrical. I don’t even know where to start here as I’m not a PT, MD, DO, DC or train other people. I’m sorry to say I think you’re wrong without backing it up. BushidoBadBoy or Cressey (in his locker room) would be better people to debate, and I’m sure they would discuss this with you.
