Systematic Evaluation and Treatment of the Shoulder Chicago IL Apr 2023
15 Contact Hours/1.5 CCU
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
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.
