Lesson Plan

Do you ever find yourself frustrated treating shoulder pain that doesn’t seem to be improving? Do you ever feel like you are missing something when working with a patient with a shoulder injury? If you have ever felt this way, you are not alone. Shoulder pain can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Sometimes shoulder pain is caused by dysfunction in a seemingly unrelated area of the body. In this discussion, you will get a refresher on shoulder anatomy and common shoulder injuries. You will also learn about sports-specific considerations and helpful movement assessments that are often missed. While this talk is geared toward working with rotational athletes, you will surely gain helpful knowledge in working with all patients and clients with stubborn shoulder pain.
