The Injured Shoulder: The Strategies, Testing & Criteria to Determine When to Return to Sports

Although we have been dealing with shoulder injuries in sports for 40 years, there is no validity or consensus on criteria for return to sports (RTS).  The session will provide a practical guide for how testing should be performed, what tests and criteria should be used, and why these criteria need to be established using a Functional Testing Algorithm (FTA).  Don’t miss this crucial session that will provide you with a step-by-step path for determining when to return to sports!

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Evaluate strategies that can be used for assessing the injured shoulder 
  2. Formulate a checklist of testing (functional testing algorithm) for patient evaluation and progression 
  3. Construct tests of the shoulder with psychometric properties that can be used for clinical reasoning for criteria for return to sport 
  4. Develop selected treatment interventions, when appropriate, for the patient's progression through the rehabilitation program

Treating Shoulder Injuries in Rotational Athletes

Talk about moving parts!  The shoulder joint is complex - you need solutions that are easy to digest AND provide better outcomes for your patients.  In this recording, you’ll explore evidence-based corrective exercise strategies that will address the most common shoulder dysfunctions you see in clinic.  We’ll also dive into how the origin of injury can impact treatment decisions – was the injury traumatic or due to overuse? Acute or chronic?   
In this recording, Dr. Reid Nelles will give you step by step guide where you’ll learn:  

You’ll also walk away with tips for using kinesiology tape to help with pain mitigation and edema.  Purchse today to feel more confident your ability to treat even the most complex shoulder injuries. 

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Choose and demonstrate use of manual therapies consisting of compression band therapy or decompression cupping for common shoulder issues. 
  2. Apply and demonstrate evidence-based corrective exercise strategies and use of kinesiology taping for common shoulder dysfunctions. 
  3. Determine and perform methods that clients or patients can utilize to address dysfunction with at-home therapeutic exercise strategies.

Infusing Stability and Mobility for Efficient Overhead Movements

The shoulder is the most complex joint in the human body, which makes treating and training overhead athletes very challenging. The shoulder requires a delicate balance of both stability and mobility to maximize production. Bringing a wealth of experience to the table, you’ll dive into: 

Join NCAA athletic trainer Mitch Hauschildt as he presents strategies to create healthy, bulletproof shoulders that can catapult active individuals into higher levels of performance.

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Determine key mobility and stability issues that affect the shoulder and larger system overall.
  2. Investigate several simple, key exercises that address both mobility and stability for the overhead athlete.
  3. Implement a structured training program to maximize shoulder output.

Upper Extremity Myofascial Chains: Don't Chase the Symptoms, Find the Cause

Roaming symptoms. Vague pains. No particular diagnosis to attribute to it. New complaints every few sessions. We’ve all been there.

These patients can often leave you feeling frustrated and defeated.

Learning more about myofascial chains revolutionized the way I treat these patients. I’m now able to quickly identify the root cause of dysfunction and alleviate symptoms sooner, often in just a few sessions!

Watch me, Dr. Rina Pandya, as we walk through the time-tested techniques that I’ve developed across my 20+ year career in outpatient therapy. We’ll begin with an in-depth tour of the fascial anatomy and how utilizing those links can help you to provide rapid improvement in movement, stability, strength and functional gains.

Discover how you can:

This concise course that will leave you feeling confident in your ability to solve those “mystery” diagnoses the very next day in clinic – resolving the issues that have nagged at these patients for weeks, months or even years!

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Perform skilled evaluation of upper extremity dysfunctions and use the knowledge of myofascial chain for differential diagnoses.
  2. Apply the knowledge of myofascial chain to treat patients successfully in a time sensitive manner instead of chasing the symptoms.
  3. Determine the right treatment strategy for the presenting diagnosis based on skilled evaluation of myofascial chain and the related dysfunctions.

Manual Therapy to Release the Frozen Shoulder

Adhesive capsulitis (AC) results in significant financial burden, pain and loss of quality of life.  With a lack of understanding, clinicians may painfully and forcibly mobilize with disregard for the myofascial component of AC. This often negatively impacts future functional activity. This session will teach you proven manual therapy techniques that significantly improve outcomes for frozen shoulder. You’ll be better equipped to help your patient with mobility, circulation and pain management for peak functional performance.

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Distinguish etiology, incidence, clinical presentation and classification of the stiff shoulder/adhesive capsulitis  
  2. Assess examination techniques to identify shoulder impingement and AC 
  3. Evaluate the use of manual therapy interventions to improve mobility and function for AC  
  4. Assess current clinical practice guidelines (CPG) for management of AC and review of current evidence with case study example

Advanced Tweak Taping Strategies

Utilizing tissue drag via tweak taping can be a powerful and effective technique for reducing pain while improving function and range of motion in specific areas of the body. Join NCAA athletic trainer Mitch Hauschildt for a recording in tweak taping where you’ll learn why this is an ideal intervention for your most difficult to treat patients that have already failed other approaches.  You’ll learn strategies for the areas you treat most often including: 

We will dive deep into the mechanism behind the technique to gain an understanding as to exactly how tweak taping works, as well as demonstrate several strategies to tape specific areas of the body and present a number of case studies to close the loop on this exciting taping technique.  Simple. Cost-effective.  Quick results. 

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Demonstrate the proposed mechanisms that make tweak taping an effective technique 
  2. Utilize a simple evaluation process to identify the location and direction of tweak taping techniques 
  3. Determine which patients and clients that are likely to respond well to tweak taping applications
