The shoulder is inherently instable – that’s why it has so much movement! One of the most daunting tasks facing rehab professionals is the in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex and how the intricate anatomy and biomechanics play into the non-surgical and post-surgical rehab process.
Dr. Rzepkowski bring 38 years of orthopedic experience to walk you through:
Which tests to use to quickly target the compromised structures
Manual and resistive exercise interventions to promote return of shoulder complex function
Best practices for pain management
But this seminar isn’t just for pre-op. When you’re following post-op protocol, it can be difficult to understand why the protocol is designed the way it is. In this seminar, you’ll also be able to SEE the surgical procedures to get a thorough understanding of why and how the protocols were developed. You’ll gain a better understanding of:
The importance of each ligament and how that impacts surgery and recovery
Why mechanical wear and tear is so common
The anatomy of impingement: videos that show what’s happening beneath the skin
When you treat patients requiring care for a wide range of shoulder pathologies ranging from tendonitis to total shoulder replacements, this in-depth understanding of the biomechanics is crucial. Watch Dr. Rzepkowski today to build your confidence in treating the various types of shoulder dysfunction you see in practice.
