Identify the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms of rotator cuff disease Define the patho anatomical and biomechanical characteristics of degenerated tendon Identify the key components of the patient history, physical examination, and patient oriented outcome measures Identify subjective and objective findings for an accurate differential diagnosis and resulting likely patient prognosis Identify evidence based intervention strategies Identify treatment efficacy effectiveness based on impairment resolution as related to patient outcomes.

Target Audience

Incidence prevalence, mechanisms, and patient oriented outcomes for patients diagnosed with rotator cuff disease Evidence Based History, Examination, and Prognosis of patients with rotator cuff disease Evidence Based Intervention Strategies Q A Session

Rotator cuff disorders encompass approximately 20 percent of all outpatient physical therapy referrals. Rehabilitation can be effective for the spectrum of patients with rotator cuff disease from acute episodes of tendinitis to chronic, full thickness tears. Emerging evidence suggests patients are likely to respond based on a number factors including history and physical presentation. Controversy exists over the optimal rehabilitation program, with respect to timing of rehabilitation, optimal dose of supervised exercise, home exercise programs versus supervised, use of manual therapy, and the type of manual therapy techniques. This webinar will provide the participant the most current understanding of the mechanisms of rotator cuff disease, outline an approach to an accurate differential diagnosis, and provide an overview of the manual therapy and exercise interventions based on the best available evidence. The webinar will use current literature as well as results from published and ongoing research examining physical therapy outcomes for patients with rotator cuff disorders. Upon completion the participant will be able to implement the techniques and strategies presented to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Identify the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms of rotator cuff disease
