The Interactive Shoulder Algorithm is an exciting learning tool for individual therapists or teams of therapists seeking to effectively evaluate the shoulder complex for orthopedic dysfunction. It provides therapists with a step by step process to effectively evaluate the shoulder complex for orthopedic dysfunction. Therapists will significantly increase the efficiency of their examinations by mastering the information in this teaching tool. Effective rehabilitation programs can be developed by the clinician through a greater understanding of the testing sequence and the anatomical implications of the tests. Experienced clinicians can utilize this software to obtain a master level understanding of the shoulder testing procedures. Each test segment detailed in the software covers critical pathways, position of the patient, position of the clinician, position of the clinicians hand, direction of movement, tissues implicated, indications of a positive test, and amount of force to be applied.
