The everyday shoulder

Most shoulders seen in physio practice are ‘everyday' shoulders. They are not elite swimmers or tennis players with exotic overuse syndromes and an enthusiasm for exercise. Instead they are manual workers, mums, recreational athletes, tradies, office workers and others with little time or energy to invest in their recovery. They are seeking a physiotherapist who can identify their problem, plot an effective path to recovery and support their goals.

The Everyday Shoulder brings a pathokinematic approach to improve movement and strength to support shoulder pathology recovery. The everyday shoulder in practice is typically weak, stiff or tight and painful. It demonstrates mixed pathology with elements of impingement, bursitis, cuff degeneration, cervico-thoracic dysfunction, scapular dyskinesia and age.

Participants will learn assessment and treatment skills for a range of shoulder dysfunctions including scapular control, glenohumeral stiffness, frozen shoulder, impingement, laxity, post-surgical and just plain getting old and weak.

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.
