The Shoulder Complex Simplified – “A clinical reasoning approach to the assessment and treatment of the shoulder girdle” – NOD Short Course

NOD Short Course

This 2-day course will focus on the assessment and treatment of the shoulder girdle using cased based learning and a clinical reasoning approach including the latest evidence and research. The course will involve active participation and will have a large practical component. The cases will involve hypothesis generation based on a comprehensive subjective evaluation and physical exam. The treatment will involve strategies for managing patient education/expectations, manual therapy (joint capsule mobilizations, neurodynamics and soft tissue work), taping and a large exercise component. The focus will be on shoulder pain/impingement caused from a variety of reasons: restrictions of soft tissue and joint extensibility, central sensitization, neurodynamic and motor control dysfunctions of the upper and lower quadrant. Common conditions that will be seen include rotator cuff pathology, SLAP lesions and hyper and hypo- mobility of the scapulothoracic region and the glenohumeral joint. It will be an interactive, knowledge-sharing experience.
