Introduction. ”Overhead” sports, characterized by predominant movements of the hands above the head, are associated with very dynamic, often acyclic movements and require strong muscles of humeroscapular regions with high mobility of the shoulder joint as well as flexibility and ability to relax these muscles. This study was aimed at analyzing the shoulder joint mobility before and after conducting kinesiology treatment for a period of 6 months. The research included two complex exercises. Material and methods. The study included 100 ”overhead” sports male athletes, who were randomly divided into the experimental and control group, aged 14 to 18 years. The range of motion was measured in degrees by goniometer. We calculated the central and depression parameter. Results. There was a statistically significant difference in flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, external and internal rotation at the final measure in favor of the experimental group at the level of significance p
