The everyday shoulder

This course takes a patho-mechanical and kinesiological approach to shoulder evaluation and management, starting with scapular position and movement and progressing to glenohumeral function and dysfunction. Understanding how to identify and correct movement pathology has application to all types of shoulder injury, overuse and surgical adventures, especially those with multiple pathologies and chronicity – the typical shoulder in everyday practice. Subscapularis dysfunction, adhesive capsulitis, functional rehab and some taping will be covered as well as scapular retraining and soft tissue mobilisation.

Learning outcomes

  • Identify mechanical dysfunction (pathokinematics) of the scapula and glenohumeral joint
  • Differentiate between segments of the proximal upper limb kinetic chain in regards tightness, laxity, weakness and failure to control under load.
  • Identify likely sources of pathology around the shoulder region as indicated by movement dysfunctions
  • Use manual therapy for scapula and shoulder to reduce tightness and correct position to allow recovery.
  • Apply appropriate rehabilitation exercises and prescriptions for safe restoration of scapula, glenohumeral and upper limb movement.

Prerequisites

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