Throughout his career Adam has worked in many roles including professional sport and has been fortunate to work with and learn from some of the world’s leading shoulder authorities and experts. Adam has helped a wide and diverse range of people from professional athletes to the general public and understands the importance of a robust progressive rehabilitation being integral to the recovery of injury and optimisation of the body throughout life. Adam strongly believes in a no-nonsense, simple, practical and evidence-based approach to therapy and the physiotherapy profession.

During this expert edition we explore the unstable or loose shoulder with Adam Meakins. We examine the categories of an unstable or loose shoulder, the worn, the born and the torn loose shoulder, dislocations on the football field or some of those ugly party tricks that your friends do when they can turn themselves into seemingly impossible positions. This is an episode that explores great principles on how to maintain a healthy shoulder across your lifespan, common mistakes people make in training shoulders and so much more.
