This course shows the clinician an entirely new and unique way to treat the shoulder girdle complex. It focuses on the concept of hypo-hyper compensation. While symptoms in the shoulder are commonly in the glenohumeral joint, the driver of the symptoms is commonly elsewhere in the shoulder girdle complex. The class incorporates joint mobilization in ways not often shown along with myofascial release, taping techniques and a fresh way to look at muscle re-education and strengthening of the shoulder.
As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.
