North American Seminars Continuing Education Course Overview

Course Features

An exciting learning tool for individual therapists or teams of therapists seeking to effectively evaluate the shoulder complex for orthopedic dysfunction. It provides therapists with a step by step process to effectively evaluate the shoulder complex for orthopedic dysfunction. Therapists will significantly increase the efficiency of their examinations by mastering the information in this teaching tool. Effective rehabilitation programs can be developed by the clinician through a greater understanding of the testing sequence and the anatomical implications of the tests. Experienced clinicians can utilize this software to obtain a master level understanding of the shoulder testing procedures. Each test segment detailed in the software covers critical pathways, position of the patient, position of the clinician, position of the clinicians hand, direction of movement, tissues implicated, indications of a positive test, and amount of force to be applied.

Continuing Medical Education Course Objectives

• Identify anatomical landmarks of the shoulder complex.

• Describe the tests utilized for orthopedic shoulder assessment and understand the rationale for using each test.

• Understand and recognize “cluster of signs and symptoms” in performance of the clinical examination.

• Determine the most appropriate test to utilize when assessing for specific orthopedic dysfunction of the shoulder complex.

• Identify optimal positioning of the clinician and therapist when assessing varying shoulder pathologies.

• Identify positive test results when performing specific shoulder tests.

• Demonstrate a thorough understanding of the amount of force and direction of movement utilized when performing each test.

• Describe the critical pathways for each test category Increase the efficiency of orthopedic shoulder evaluations.

• Develop effective rehabilitation programs by having an understanding of efficient testing procedures to rule out specific orthopedic dysfunction.
