The Shoulder: Barriers To Successful Treatment
Participants will have an opportunity to reflect and discuss any challenges they may have encountered with employing the simple structured approach to assessment presented in the one-day course. This course will consider common barriers to successful intervention and present simple assessment and treatment approaches to address them. This will incorporate current understanding of the role of the cervical spine, thorax, long head of biceps and acromio-clavicular joint in shoulder function and pathology. In addition participants will gain an insight into how our initial interaction with patients can be pivotal in the outcome of treatment and how the application of modern pain sciences can offer opportunities for treatment. The course will provide a clinically reasoned simple approach to problem solving to increase participants confidence in dealing with apparently difficult presentations
Aims and Learning outcomes:
1. To review the current literature regarding dynamic stability of the shoulder complex and explore the application to clinical assessment and treatment.
2. To explore barriers to recovery in treatment of the shoulder complex and demonstrate effective management strategies.
3. To review developments in pain science and how they may impact treatment interventions.
4. To apply advanced clinical reasoning to complex presentations and design effective rehabilitation strategies.
By the end of this one-day course the participant should;
1. Understand current concepts of dynamic stability of the shoulder joint and the implications of pathology.
2. Understand barriers to the successful treatment of complex shoulder problems and develop a skill set to address these.
3. Understand the implications of central brain changes in chronicity and recurrence in shoulder pathology and the opportunities this presents.
4. Have the ability to clinically reason key treatment approaches in the management of complex shoulder conditions.
