Description

The shoulder is inherently instable – that’s why it has so much movement! One of the most daunting tasks facing rehab professionals is the in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex and how the intricate anatomy and biomechanics play into the non-surgical and post-surgical rehab process.

Dr. Rzepkowski bring 38 years of orthopedic experience to walk you through:

  • Which tests to use to quickly target the compromised structures
  • Manual and resistive exercise interventions to promote return of shoulder complex function
  • Best practices for pain management

But this seminar isn’t just for pre-op. When you’re following post-op protocol, it can be difficult to understand why the protocol is designed the way it is. In this seminar, you’ll also be able to SEE the surgical procedures to get a thorough understanding of why and how the protocols were developed. You’ll gain a better understanding of:

  • The importance of each ligament and how that impacts surgery and recovery
  • Why mechanical wear and tear is so common
  • The anatomy of impingement: videos that show what’s happening beneath the skin

When you treat patients requiring care for a wide range of shoulder pathologies ranging from tendonitis to total shoulder replacements, this in-depth understanding of the biomechanics is crucial. Join Dr. Rzepkowski today to build your confidence in treating the various types of shoulder dysfunction you see in practice.
