Non-Operative Shoulder Rehabilitation: Current
Concepts in the Evaluation and Treatment of the Painful Shoulder
Specific diagnosis within the realm of shoulder
pain can be problematic. It is unrealistic for a single test to make a
pathognomonic diagnosis, but there are clinical tests with varying levels of
sensitivity and specificity that, when clustered together, can aid the clinician
in determining proper pathology. The clinician must decide between various
manual techniques, exercises, modalities and adjunctive treatment techniques.
In this exciting, interactive, one-day seminar is you will practice multiple
specialized tests and determine how to cluster them to improve accuracy of
diagnosis. Participants will have the opportunity to practice various
mobilization and stabilization techniques to address limitations in range of
motion and pain. With hands-on labs and case studies participants will be
educated on current concepts in adjunctive treatment techniques, including
ergonomic adaptations, which can be immediately incorporated into practice.
