A Master Clinicians Approach to Advanced Concepts in Examination and Treatment of the Shoulder Complex – North American Seminars Inc.

August 27, 2016 - August 28, 2016


This two-day advanced course provides an in-depth analysis of the scientific and clinical rationale for examination and treatment of selected shoulder complex conditions. Over one-third of this course involves hands-on lab sessions utilizing case studies, clinical reasoning, and problem-solving skills. A special focus will be on the algorithm-based examination format for the special tests of the shoulder. Updated evidence-based information on sensitivity/specificity and likelihood ratios of the tests will be thoroughly addressed. In addition, selected mobilization techniques, rhythmic stabilization, perturbation techniques, and open and closed chain exercises will be practiced in the laboratory sessions. Discussion of evidence-based rehabilitation will include the optimum exercises for rehabilitation of the shoulder complex, shoulder taping, proprioceptive/kinesthetic training techniques and the scientific basis for plyometrics. Emphasis will be placed on evidence-based practice incorporating the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment intervention strategies and clinical outcome studies for patients with selected shoulder conditions.

Continuing Education Course Objectives:

  1. Integrate an understanding of the basic concepts and principles of evidence-based practice into one’s own clinical practice patterns.
  2. Understand and utilize the resources available to research the current best practices.
  3. Demonstrate an understanding of algorithm-based examination and evaluation of the shoulder complex.
  4. Identify the key factors affecting clinical efficiency and accuracy when using an algorithm-based examination process.
  5. Interpret and evaluate the examination findings using clinical reasoning skills to develop successful therapeutic intervention programs.
  6. Describe the difference between adhesive capsulitis and shoulder selective hypomobility.
  7. Develop an integrated evidence-based (when available) and empirically-based rehabilitation program for specific dysfunctions of the shoulder.
  8. Classify the selected disorders of the shoulder discussed in the course.
  9. Compare and contrast an understanding of the most recent advances in the examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, treatment interventions and outcomes of selected shoulder disorders using evidence-based concepts.
  10. Utilize current evidence-based clinical and scientific information to develop effective outcome evaluation measures.
  11. Integrate interpretation of outcomes to impact future treatment models.
