Our FSHD University webinar on January 27, 2022, was a revelation! We learned that the muscle weakness that causes scapular winging can lead to maladaptive, compensatory movements which themselves can result in further loss of function and severe pain from overused muscles and entrapped nerves. Our speaker, Jos IJspeert, shared videos of FSHD patients performing exercises to re-train and correct their shoulder movements.
