Diagnosis and Management of the Shoulder and Shoulder Girdle

Musculoskeletal Courses

Course Description

Chronic subacromial bursitis, impingement syndrome and rotator-cuff tendinitis are synonymous terms describing a clinical condition affecting approximately 20% of the adult population. Dr. Jean-Michel Brismèe and Dr. Phil Sizer explain in this online course how differentiate, through a precise clinical diagnosis, common sources of pain and causes of dysfunctions associated with the shoulder joint complex. By being more specific in the musculoskeletal diagnosis, treatment can become more effective and specific.

The IAOM-US Diagnosis and Management of the Shoulder and Shoulder Girdle online course takes an in-depth look at primary and secondary pathoanatomy, biomechanics, basic and specific clinical examination and interpretation, management suggestions and specific approaches to diagnose and treat shoulder and shoulder girdle related disorders.

This course emphasizes didactic or theoretical content that is delivered through online lectures and materials (emanuals*: course slides, study guide and suggested reading). This is a self-pace on-line course available 24/7. You can start and stop your viewing time as needed. It is segmented into lecture modules plus a final quiz to gauge your understanding.

The study guide is provided to help focus your learning experience and prepare you to apply this knowledge into your daily clinical practice. This online course is perfect complement to the IAOM-US Differential Diagnosis and Musculoskeletal Management of the Shoulder and Shoulder Girdle hands-on, lab-based portion.
