Shoulder pain is extremely prevalent in the general population, being ranked as the third most common musculoskeletal complaint.  This two-day hands on seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of shoulder function and its relationship to the entire upper extremity. Improve your outcomes in the clinic or training room by examining the best evidence-based manual techniques and functional exercises for conservative and post-op management of common shoulder conditions.

Common pathologies, progressive non-operative and post-operative treatment involving impingement, instability, rotator cuff pathologies/tears, adhesive capsulitis, arthroplasties, and thoracic outlet syndrome will be covered with strong reference to their impact on function. Techniques covered will include joint and soft tissue mobilizations, kinetic chain strengthening, taping strategies, plyometric and athletic shoulder exercises and more.

This seminar is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs of the busy clinician. The hands on course content will be grounded in evidence based treatment strategies and supported with pertinent case studies.

You will return to your practice with new, applicable tools to treat a myriad of shoulder problems more effectively and efficiently.
