Rotator Cuff Dysfunction - Physical Therapy Seminar

The Functional Shoulder: Based on Clinical Commentary of Evidence


Treating the Functionality of the Shoulder
Because of the complex design of the rotator cuff, it is susceptible to injury. These injuries can be due to overuse in sports activities or it can occur from repetitive motions. Whatever the cause, weakness, stiffness, and pain often ensue. Because the shoulder plays a sizable role in arm functioning, proper rehabilitation of this joint is essential to return the patient to a healthy state. Further complicating the issue is reimbursement and providers that only allot a limited number of visits to complete rehabilitation. Clinicians must be knowledgeable about not only "tried and true" techniques, but must also stay abreast of current research, new products available, and developments within their field. Clinicians who fail to do this can be increasing their patient's recuperation time and missing important treatment goals.

This one-day course will demonstrate how to be more innovative in your treatment planning, examine functional approaches to rehabilitation of the kinetic chains, and illustrate the benefits of incorporating evidenced-based approaches into your "bag of treatment tools." Additionally, attendees will examine rotator cuff injuries that occur at different points in the human lifespan, as well as recommended treatment for each population. Why certain injuries are more common with particular age groups, such as instability in teenagers and degenerative joint disease in aging patients will be examined as well. Course participants will explore protocols for pathology of the shoulder with "hands-on" lab sessions so they can return to their rehabilitation settings with applicable concepts and skills. Clinicians will come away excited about trying new, practical techniques that produce results and, in turn, their orthopedic rehab patients will demonstrate a more positive attitude about their recovery.


  • Define functionality of the shoulder
  • Discuss the true function of the rotator cuff as the protection of all shoulder pathology
  • Examine why scapula stabilization is the core of the rotator cuff
  • Determine when and how to use closed kinetic chain exercises for the upper extremity
  • Assess the importance of positional recruitment for open kinetic chain exercises based on evidence-based practice
  • Reconsider the use of elastic band exercises
  • Geriatric considerations of exercises
  • Expand your hands-on mobility skills

What You Should Bring
• Pillow
• Towel, regular size
• Portable treatment table, if available
• Please wear proper exercise attire to participate in lab


TERRY TRUNDLE, PTA, A.T.C., LAT, has over 34 years of experience in clinical practice and offers educational programs on functional rehabilitation focusing on the upper and lower kinetic chain. Mr. Trundle practices in the Atlanta area where he is Owner and Director of the Athletic Rehab Institute and Sports Medicine. He is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and has been very active in the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Athletic Trainers Association. He was recently named one of the first recipients of the Recognition of Advanced Proficiency Award for the Physical Therapist Assistant in Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy by the American Physical Therapy Association and was recognized by the Medical College of Georgia as one of its Fab 40 Alumnus, a distinction given for distinguished alumni who are leaders in health sciences education and who have made life better for the people of Georgia. Mr. Trundle has also been recognized by the Cambridge Who's Who of Executives and Professionals. In addition to his clinical work, he is a rehab consultant to Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University and provides athletic training services for high schools in the North Metro Atlanta, Georgia area.

Due to his many years of treating orthopedic shoulder injuries in the clinic and on the sideline, Mr. Trundle was asked to author "Chapter 21: Orthopedic Management of the Shoulder" in Fundamental Orthopedic Management for the Physical Therapist Assistant by Gary A. Shankman and Robert C. Manske, 2011. Mr. Trundle's research has been featured in journal publications such as the Journal of Athletic Training, the Journal of Sports Rehabilitation, and Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise Journal, the official journal of the American College of Sports Medicine. The concepts presented by Mr. Trundle are beneficial in multiple settings as he emphasizes practical approaches to functional exercise. Mr. Trundle is the co-producer of a four-part video series that includes exercises on the knee and shoulder and passive micro-mobility of the upper and lower kinetic chains.


Dynamic speaker! Easily kept my interest. A lot of valuable information presented; it was easily followed and able to be used upon return to the clinic.
