Rotator Cuff Dysfunction: Functional Recovery from Impingement & Surgery
May 19, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MST
This 1-day course will demonstrate how to be more innovative in your treatment planning, examine functional approaches to rehabilitation of the kinetic chains, and illustrate the benefits of incorporating evidenced-based approaches into your “bag of treatment tools.” Additionally, attendees will examine rotator cuff injuries that occur at different points in the human lifespan, as well as recommended treatment for each population. Why certain injuries are more common with particular age groups, such as instability in teenagers and degenerative joint disease in aging patients, will be examined as well. Course participants will explore protocols for pathology of the shoulder with “hands-on” lab sessions so they can return to their rehabilitation settings with applicable concepts and skills. Clinicians will come away excited about trying new, practical techniques that produce results and, in turn, their orthopedic rehab patients will demonstrate a more positive attitude about their recovery.
