This course is offered in cooperation with Elsevier Science and utilizes the textbook, “Physical Therapy of the Shoulder, 5th Ed”, c2012, edited by Robert A. Donatelli, PhD, PT, OCS. Dr. Donatelli is a certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist with over 30 years of clinical hands-on experience.
This textbook is the leading reference on the shoulder and is now completely up-to-date with state-of-the-art rehabilitation and surgical techniques. It is an essential resource to the therapist, providing valuable information on functional anatomy, the mechanics of movement, neurologic, special, and surgical considerations and evaluation and treatment. This new edition provides new information, concepts, and evaluation of physical therapy and dysfunction based on the APTA Guide to Physical Therapy Practice, 2nd Ed and integrates these practice patterns with rehabilitation of the shoulder.
These courses are essential to therapists treating shoulder injuries in all rehabilitation settings!
Module 1 (Course #731) covers the mechanics of movement and evaluation including the guide to practice, functional anatomy and mechanics, throwing injuries and examinations and evaluation of the shoulder
Module 2 (Course #732) covers neurologic considerations including the interrelationship of the spine, rib cage and shoulder, neural tissue evaluation and treatment, sensory integration and neuromuscular control of the shoulder and evaluation and treatment of brachial plexus lesions.
Module 3 (Course #733) covers special considerations including impingement syndrome and impingement-related instability, frozen shoulder, evaluation and rehabilitation of rotator cuff pathologic conditions and rehabilitation and visceral pain referred to the shoulder
Module 4 (Course #734) covers treatment approaches including manual therapy, muscle length testing and electromyographic evidence for manual strength testing and exercises for the shoulder, rotator cuff repairs and surgical approaches to shoulder instabilities
This package contains the required reading and test materials for Module 1 only.
Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on the mechanics of movement and evaluation of the shoulder.
