Salford Orthopaedic Series
This course will use an evidence based approach to focus on real world rehabilitation strategies and progressions for patients with many common and challenging surgical procedures of the shoulder including rotator cuff repair, SLAP repair, arthroscopic instability repair, and arthroplasty. Conservative rehabilitation of rotator cuff disease, glenohumeral instability, and adhesive capsulitis will also be highlighted. Hands-on sessions include evaluation and treatment of scapula dyskinesia, mobilization of the shoulder girdle, and clinical examination. Emphasis will be placed on how to implement an EMG guided exercise progression, the keys to clinical decision-making, as well as the “why” behind the rehabilitation.
At the conclusion of the conference, the participant should be able to:
- Have a general knowledge of selected surgical procedures of the shoulder and recognize their effect on rehabilitation.
- Skillfully apply systematic rehabilitation guidelines for patients after common surgical procedures of the shoulder and understand the rationale for their use.
- Learn and practice intermediate and advanced mobilizations for the glenohumeral, sternoclavicular, and acromioclavicular joints.
- Implement effective clinical rehabilitation progressions for patients with rotator cuff disease, glenohumeral instability, and adhesive capsulitis.
- Learn how to perform a biomechanical scapula evaluation and formulate a comprehensive rehabilitation program.
- Be able to identify common clusters of signs and symptoms to aide in differential diagnosis of patients with common shoulder conditions.
