Description

The shoulder complex is quite complicated and determining the specific pathology that is in place and the best intervention strategy can be daunting tasks. Be a “hero” to your patient, as you learn the best special tests that are effective in detecting various shoulder pathologies.

You will get to practice these tests during the hands-on lab portion, with the support of an expert clinician to observe and offer guidance. You will learn how to rehab the patient with anterior instability so that they are protected from subluxation/dislocation and destruction of the glenohumeral joint.

Essential strategies will be shared that insure patients with rotator cuff tears are less likely to end up with total shoulder arthroplasty surgery.

You will become the effective detective, able to determine the anatomic site of thoracic outlet compression, syndrome and the appropriate intervention to address the compression.

Do you feel confident in identifying when it is appropriate to mobilize the frozen shoulder aggressively and why the techniques that you may have learned in school are not working to restore motion, thereby causing frustration for you and the shoulder patient with adhesive capsulitis?

Apply the key principles of creep and stress relaxation and practice them during lab time, to restore glenohumeral and scapulotharacic motion for patients.

There is obviously much to learn to truly advance your skills.

It’s time to take your insights and abilities to the next level!
