The Shoulder Complex: Evaluation & Therapy On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Included in this two-day workshop is an overview of the most common orthopedic conditions in which therapeutic intervention is indicated, evaluation and treatment schemes to promote successful outcomes and significant lab time.

Course Description/Agenda


Successful evaluation and treatment of the shoulder complex entails an accurate understanding of its normal and abnormal anatomy, pathomechanics and biomechanics. Treatment of the shoulder can be complex and confusing based upon the multitude of approaches that exist. By utilizing a systematic approach, therapists and athletic trainers may focus on a problem-solving basis to accurately and successfully evaluate patients with a variety of shoulder conditions.

Included in this two-day workshop is an overview of the most common orthopedic conditions in which therapeutic intervention is indicated, evaluation and treatment schemes to promote successful outcomes and significant lab time. Attendees will develop a foundation for effective evaluation and treatment (surgical as well as non-surgical); including manual therapy techniques, exercise prescription, taping, and “appropriate” use of various modalities/physical agents.

Course Objectives

  • Participants will be able to demonstrate and perform a complete shoulder evaluation based on the pathomechanics, biomechanics and anatomical condition(s).
  • Participants will be able to identify the common shoulder conditions and their management (surgical and non-surgical conditions).
  • Participants will be able to perform common examination techniques based upon an accurate history and stage of the condition(s) (e.g. acute, chronic, etc.)
  • Participants will be able to perform therapeutic treatment techniques often encountered when treating the shoulder complex.
  • Participants will be able to perform basic mobilization and other manual therapy techniques to help facilitate normal recovery.
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate a working understanding of the various modalities that may be utilized when treating shoulder conditions.
