The Sternoclavicular joint is the only skeletal articulation between the axial skeleton and the upper limb. Despite its importance, it is often ignored in the physiotherapy assessment and management of shoulder pain. A minor dysfunction of the sternoclavicular joint can be manifested as a major shoulder and arm dysfunction and pain. This course explores the anatomy, biomechanics, assessment, and management of the sternoclavicular joint.
