This new edition of the shoulder course was developed from new research and clinical findings. New ideas and techniques have been incorporated into the course content. The use of special tests and a review of systems to distinguish musculoskeletal dysfunction from medical pathology is essential for the clinician. This course will teach the therapist those skills necessary in making a thorough evaluation of the shoulder and Upper Q and then design a rehabilitation program based upon the examination findings. State of the art techniques will be discussed along with the most current research findings.
