In Person Practical Course

On this course you will learn:

  • Understand the biomechanics and clinical anatomy of the glenohumeral, scapulo‐thoracic, scapulo‐humeral and cervico‐thoracic regions in a unique, clinically applicable manner.
  • Recognise abnormal scapular and glenohumeral positional changes and its effect on the presenting pathology.
  • Understand & identify the causative factors in various upper quarter syndromes.
  • Predict risk for future injury of the upper quarter.
  • Assess the upper quarter in detail. This assessment is unique, providing maximum information with minimum tests. A novel assessment form is provided for immediate use in your treatment rooms.
  • Use clinical reasoning to identify source of symptoms and the appropriate management.
  • Learn to reason where you should start with management: with glenohumeral or scapular or cervical dysfunction. Which is the chicken & which is the egg?
  • Correctly teach your patient selected stabilisation strategies (to improve motor control & control of the neutral) of the craniovertebral, scapula and glenohumeral joints from the initial acute phase (in neutral) to full return to their pre‐injury level.
  • Pre‐habilitate injury risk factors to prevent injury, minimise costs and allow the professional athlete to be less hampered by persistent injury.
  • Progress rehabilitation in functionally ideal positions for optimal return to the patients’ preinjury level.
