Too many athletes are reinjured when practitioners rely solely on time to determine if they are ready for activity.

Strength. ROM. Pain. Stability. Proprioception.
All of these are critical players alongside time & tissue healing.

Through a functional testing algorithm, you will learn a practical, evidence-based & objective framework to better determine when a patient can return to sport. Get the latest cutting-edge insights from 10 of the country's most trusted orthopedic experts.
  • Functional movement assessments that consider the demands on the entire kinetic chain
  • Specific exercises and progressions to best replicate the sport-specific needs of your athletes
  • Proven strategies for labral/rotator cuff tears, impingement, tennis elbow, throwing mechanics, and more!
  • Fresh new insights for managing repetitive overuse tendon injuries… and how you may be treating them wrong
  • Multimodal approaches to upgrade your toolbox: manual therapy, taping, myofascial release, cupping, compression flossing, IASTM, and more!

Filled with broad concepts that help every shoulder you treat, from general ortho patients, to weekend warriors or competitive overhead athletes — this is your one-stop shop.

And to sweeten the deal, we are also including an exclusive bonus package with HOT topics like blood flow restriction, cupping, nutrition strategies for inflammation and recovery, sleep, and more!!
