When you're working with upper extremity patients, sometimes progress can feel like an uphill battle.

Many patients have difficulty describing upper extremity symptoms, so localizing the problem can be a challenge. Scar tissue and edema often limit tissue gliding so much that it interferes with exercises and functional tasks. And when standard treatment protocols fall short of expectations, this can leave your patients frustrated, pained by activities that give them purpose, and resigned to surgical options.

But with the latest advances in upper extremity rehabilitation, helping your patients achieve their functional goals is easier than ever.

BONUS
Manual Therapy to Release the Frozen Shoulder
Dr. Theresa Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS, CHy | Click here for information about Theresa A. Schmidt

Too many clinicians painfully and forcibly mobilize with disregard for the myofascial component of adhesive capsulitis. This often negatively impacts future functional activity. This training will teach you proven manual therapy techniques that significantly improve outcomes for frozen shoulder:

  • Myofascial therapy
  • Soft tissue mobilization
  • Cupping therapy
  • Muscle energy/PNF

You'll be better equipped to help your patient with mobility, circulation and pain management for peak functional performance.

Shoulder & Elbow Joint Replacements — New Advancements in Rehab
Dr. Terry L. Rzepkowski, DPT, MS, BS | Click here for information about Terry Rzepkowski

In this training, you'll learn all the new advances related to shoulder and elbow joint replacements. Explore the indications for a total shoulder versus a reverse total shoulder. New advances in pain management for same-day surgery will be presented, including nerve blocks and intraoperative pain cocktails. You'll also gain insight into the new advances in 3D modeling for pre-operative planning along with a rehab focus for return of functional mobility.
