Preventing Rotator Cuff Injury
The shoulder complex is the most freely moveable part of our body. Because of this wonderful range of movement, it is highly susceptible to injury and dysfunction. Virtually all of our clients have experienced shoulder pain and injury. Rotator cuff injuries are becoming more and more common, especially in this age of "computer shoulders." People with rotator cuff/shoulder dysfunctions and injuries suffer constant pain, interrupted sleep, and loss of range of motion. A detailed understanding of the shoulder complex and the skills to precisely release the affected muscles are of the utmost importance to bring our clients to a pain-free state.
This one-day seminar offers you the tools to give your clients complete freedom from shoulder pain. Learn about rotator cuff injuries, how to release the affected muscles, and prevention of future injuries. The course also covers proper sleep position, stretching, and strengthening movements for the rotator cuff that are essential for the health of the shoulder joint. This course is a must for all therapists interested in helping their clients attain an injury-free state. Manual therapists are at high risk for rotator cuff/shoulder injuries. You will use this information for the rest of your career!
