This course is designed to present an anatomical and biomechanical basis for rehabilitation of the shoulder and the elbow. Normal anatomy and biomechanics form the basis for understanding the pathomechanics of musculoskeletal dysfunction of the shoulder and elbow. Integration of both joints for normal function will be reviewed. Treatment planning will include consideration of joint arthrology and accessory movements, exercise strategies, functional retraining and incorporation of physical agents and splinting/bracing.
