A shoulder patient is rarely ‘just a shoulder.’ Differentiating between the rotator cuff, impingement, referred pain from the cervical spine, the thoracic spine, postural dysfunction and more - will even leave experienced clinicians scratching their heads.
Adding to the challenge is the often vague and diffuse symptom reports patient’s offer as they struggle to describe what they feel, other than, “it hurts.”
Successful treatment of the shoulder is just as dependent on your differential diagnosis as it is on any of your interventions.
A complicated process — simplified! You will get to the root cause of impairment faster and confidently with a comprehensive assessment to:
Knowing is half the battle, next is what you do about it. With an emphasis on function, treatment strategies utilize multiplanar dynamic application. Covered techniques include manual therapy, active mobilization techniques, strengthening, neuromuscular re-education, PNF and more! All of which can be done with simple tools you likely already have in the clinic.
Your success and recognition as the go to shoulder specialist awaits, and at an exceptional price when you register by May 22, 2023.
