This online continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with shoulder pain and dysfunction. This course will serve to utilize the current best evidence for shoulder pain and integrate the regional interdependence model as evaluated through the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA).
The course will cover primary shoulder diagnoses commonly seen in the rehabilitation setting. The course will be based around contemporary classification systems for shoulder pain and will include demonstration of evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for each primary condition covered including subacromial impingement, instability, labral lesions, rotator cuff pathology, and adhesive capsulitis relative to the shoulder.
Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with strategies to manage musculoskeletal health throughout the lifespan will be covered.
