Franklin, TN (PRWEB) August 31, 2014
This two-day advanced shoulder physical therapy continuing education 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.
This PT Continuing Education Course is instructed by Dr. George J, Davies an internationally known speaker who has presented hundreds of conferences throughout the world on sports physical therapy, athletic training, shoulder, knee, open and closed kinetic chain topics, orthopaedics, rehabilitation and Isokinetics.
