Systematic Evaluation and Treatment of the Shoulder – Baton Rouge LA – Jan 2024

UE Track Courses

Course Description

15 Education Hours
1.5 AOTA CEU’s

Improve your clinical confidence with treating the shoulder!

Participants will be able to perform joint specific mobilization techniques for adhesive capsulitis that address capsular restrictions with limitations to 90⁰ and at end-range including testing and treatment of limitations at the acromioclavicular (AC) and sternoclavicular (SC) joints. Determine the difference in clinical presentation between patients with external and internal impingement and assess the integrity of the rotator cuff musculature, identify bursal irritation and perform special tests related to impingement and instability.

Target Audience: OT, COTA,PT,PTA

Educational Level: Intermediate

Instructional Method

Our live courses are made up of lectures that are taught through audiovisual systems (Power Point / Keynote), and all course information is sent to participants before the starting day of the actual course for further review and discussion. The hands-on section is carried out through demonstration of techniques performed by the instructors, and then replicated by the participants under instructors’ supervision, guidance, and feedback. The hands-on section is evaluated by the instructors using an observable skills rubric.

Objectives and Goals

Through a combination of lecture and lab, participants will:
  • Execute an examination using the systematic approach including differentiating between external and internal impingement and determining the most efficient course of treatment (OT Service Delivery, Foundational Knowledge)
  • Perform joint specific mobilization techniques to address capsular restrictions with limitations to 90 degrees and at end-range shoulder motion. (OT Service Delivery, Foundational Knowledge)
  • Appraise the role of the AC and SJ joint contributions to the kinetic chain with functional reaching patterns for occupations and perform testing and treatment of limitations at the AC and SC joints. (Foundational Knowledge, OT Service Delivery, Foundational Knowledge)
  • Examine the integrity of the rotator cuff musculature, identify bursal irritation, and perform special tests related to impingement and instability. (Foundational Knowledge, OT Service Delivery)
  • Critique positions used for occupations that are mechanically harmful for shoulder instability and create a selective treatment plan to promote joint stability based on evidence-based understanding of muscle groups. (OT Service Delivery, Foundational Knowledge)
