The Shoulder: Theory & Practice

A biopsychosocial approach for the assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions involving the shoulder region.

In addition to assessment & management of the shoulder region, this course synthesises the complex relationships between; the shoulder & body biomechanics, pain science, lifestyle, patient psychosocial factors, beliefs & expectations, best practice, & more …and is guaranteed to be fun

Learning Outcomes
1. To develop a better understanding and knowledge of the clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle.
2. To appreciate the importance of taking a biopsychosocial approach to patient management.
3. To develop a comprehensive subjective and physical evaluation strategy for the shoulder that considers local and referred
sources of pain and directs the clinician to develop an appropriate management plan.
4. To develop greater confidence with the physical assessment of the shoulder region and a better understanding of the evidence
for the use of the selected assessment techniques.
5. To develop a greater understanding and knowledge of various pathologies of the shoulder girdle.
6. To develop greater competency in the management of patients with a variety of shoulder pathologies.
7. To review the research evidence relating to the influence of posture and muscle imbalance and its relationship with shoulder
pathology.
8. To review the evidence underpinning the pathology, and the assessment and management of various shoulder conditions,
including rotator cuff related shoulder pain and frozen shoulder
9. To review the research evidence evaluating the use of diagnostic imaging as part of the management for musculoskeletal
disorders of the shoulder.
10. To review the research evidence evaluating the use of injections as part of the management for musculoskeletal disorders of the
shoulder.
11. To develop greater confidence in the use of exercise therapy and other techniques for managing shoulder conditions and
evaluation of the efficacy of the techniques, balanced against the evidence base for using these techniques.

A biopsychosocial approach for the assessment and management of musculoskeletal conditions involving the shoulder region. Taught worldwide in over 35 countries, this course is continually updated, integrating the latest research evidence In addition to assessment & management of the shoulder region, this course synthesises the complex relationships between; the shoulder & body biomechanics, pain science, lifestyle, patient psychosocial factors, beliefs & expectations, best practice, & more ...and is guaranteed to be fun This course remains a ‘work in progress’ and is continually being updated with the emergence of new research and clinical understanding. As a result, many people have participated on two and some on three occasions. This course will be thought provoking, and provide opportunity to discuss ideas and share experiences. To include a comprehensive new section on Frozen Shoulder, the course no longer includes the formal SSMP, but does include a clinically relevant section on the application of symptom modification. Learning Outcomes 1. To develop a better understanding and knowledge of the clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle. 2.

Dr Jeremy Lewis is a Consultant Physiotherapist and Professor of Musculoskeletal Research. He was born in New Zealand and trained in Australian. He works in the UK National Health Service as well as working privately in central London (www.CHHP.com). He is Professor of Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Hertfordshire, UK, and adjunct Professor of Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Limerick, Ireland. He has been awarded a Fellowship of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, and has been acknowledged as an eminent clinician in his profession (UK DoH [Department of Health] National AHP Clinical Expert Database). He assesses and treats patients with complex shoulder problems. Jeremy has also trained as a sonographer and performs ultrasound guided shoulder injections, (including intra- articular hydro-distension procedures for Stage III frozen shoulder) as part of the rehabilitation process if required and appropriate. He has also completed an MSc (Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy), and Postgraduate Diplomas in Sports Physiotherapy, and in Biomechanics, as well as MSc modules in injection therapy for soft tissues and joints. He also has a Postgraduate Certificate in Diagnostic Imaging (Ultrasound) (University of Leeds, UK). He has also qualified as an Independent (non-medical) Prescriber. Jeremy has taught shoulder workshops internationally in over 35 countries. He has been invited to present keynote and invited lectures at many international conferences (example below). His main areas of research interest are rotator cuff related shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, injection therapy, exercise therapy and lateral elbow tendinopathy. In addition to his own research he supervises PhD and MSc students. Jeremy is an associate editor for the Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy (JOSPT). He was a co-editor and author for Grieve’s Modern Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy (4th ed).
