At the completion of this course, participants should be able to:
1.Name the origins, insertions, innervations and actions of all muscles that attach to the scapula and describe normal scapulohumeral rhythm
2.Explain a rotator interval
3.Describe the layers of the rotator cuff and explain the basic biomechanical functions
4.Differentiate between a Bankart lesion, a HAGL lesions and a Hill-Sachs lesion
5.Name the main stabilizers of the AC joint and describe which direction they resist displacement

8.Explain the Mumford procedure
9.Explain the expected ROM, strength, pain and function of a patient with a rotator cuff repair at 1 and 5 years
10.Describe the passive stabilizing mechanism and the primary static stabilizers for the glenohumeral joint
11.Describe the grading scheme used to assess increased glenohumeral translation
12.Explain how the outcome of immediate shoulder stabilization compares to the nonoperative management of shoulder instability in the healthy, young adult
13.List and differentiate between the types of SLAP lesions, describe the special tests used in evaluation
14.Define primary and secondary adhesive capsulitis
15.Differentiate between unconstrained, constrained and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty

17.Describe the Neer-phased rehabilitation program
18.Explain the classification and treatment of acromioclavicular and sternoclavicular injuries, including the operative and nonoperative approaches
19.Explain the 3-D kinematics of the scapular with respect to the humerus and trunk in arm elevation
20.Describe how abnormal scapular movement is assessed
21.List the muscles that attach to the scapular, the peripheral nerves innervating each muscle, and the corresponding root levels
22.Define a snapping scapula, the differential diagnosis and subsequent treatment
23.List indications for operative treatment of clavicle fractures
24.Describe the typical presentation of a patient with a spinal accessory nerve injury

This course is derived from the textbook by Jeffrey Placzek, MD, PT and David Boyce, PT, EdD, OCS, ©2006. This textbook is part of the popular Secrets series. It presents physical therapy concepts and then introduces different healing modalities, specialties and orthopedic procedures typically prescribed for common injuries such as shoulders and extremities. Common diseases are included as well as more innovative diagnostic tools for physical therapists such as radiology. The text features concise information that includes tips, and memory “secrets”. Bulleted lists, algorithms and illustrations provide a quick review of the specific topics discussed. The information is interesting, entirely evidence-based, outcome based and up-to-date.
