The T.O.S.S.: Applications for the Shoulder and Hip Complexes


We assess and address movement in a proximal-to-distal manner on the premise that the kinetic chain follows a pattern of proximal activation before distal movement.  Movement of the upper and lower extremities depends on proper sequencing of their proximal complexes: the shoulder complex for the upper extremity and the hip complex for the lower extremity.  Understanding this kinetic link system is fundamental in establishing an optimal movement.
