The shoulder theory and practice

An evidence-based theoretical and practical course based on extensive clinical experience in assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of shoulder pathology. The course is extensively link to the most recent research publications from a variety of disciplines.

New models of shoulder assessment including the Shoulder Symptom Modification Procedure and a new model for staging and treating rotator cuff tendinopathy will be presented.

Emphasis will be placed on clinical reasoning to support management decisions. Participants completing these courses will gain a greater understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, assessment and evidence-based treatment of this interesting and complicated region of the body.

This course is now full. Please contact us to be added to the waitlist.

Learning outcomes

  • To develop a better understanding and knowledge of the clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle.
  • To develop a comprehensive subjective and physical evaluation strategy for the shoulder that considers local and referred sources of pain and directs the clinician to develop an appropriate management plan.
  • To develop greater confidence with the physical assessment of the shoulder region and a better understanding of the evidence for the use of the selected assessment techniques.
  • To gain proficiency in the Shoulder Symptom Modification Procedure.
  • To develop a greater understanding and knowledge of various pathologies of the shoulder girdle.
  • To develop greater competency in the management of patients with a variety of shoulder pathologies including; the acute shoulder, subacromial pain syndrome, rotator cuff, shoulder pain syndromes, and pain referred to the shoulder.
  • To review the research evidence relating to the influence of posture and muscle imbalance and its relationship with shoulder pathology.
  • To review the evidence underpinning the pathology, and the assessment and management of various shoulder conditions, especially rotator cuff and biceps tendinopathy.
  • To review the research evidence evaluating the use of diagnostic imaging as part of the management for musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder
  • To review the research evidence evaluating the use of injections as part of the management for musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder.
  • To develop a greater confidence in the use of exercise therapy, hands on therapy and taping techniques for the shoulder and evaluation of the efficacy of the techniques, balanced against the evidence base for using these techniques.

Prerequisites

  • This course is only available to qualified and AHPRA registered physiotherapists.
