This two-day intermediate level course provides a thorough evidence based analysis of evaluation and treatment of the neurologically involved shoulder. The concepts and principles demonstrated in this course enhance both the clinicians knowledge base and hands-on skills. This course enables the clinician to identify impairments in alignment, movement patterns, musculoskeletal dysfunctions and potential pain producers. Course instruction is enhanced by extensive hands-on practice of the treatment approaches for soft tissue, joint and neural mobilization and taping techniques. These techniques can also be applied to a multitude of impairments such as CVA, spinal cord, traumatic brain injury, peripheral nerve injuries as well as orthopedic pathologies and status post surgeries. The interactive lecture and laboratory sessions prepare the medical professional to identify effective rehabilitation procedures for safe therapeutic management. Lab exercises and case studies also demonstrate the utilization of the Disablement Model, particularly the Nagi Scheme. The incorporation of physiological and accessory movement and the unique combination of the techniques used for treatment in this class ultimately result in increased range of motion and overall achievement of positive functional outcomes. This course material assists the clinician in becoming more efficient with diagnosing, documenting, communicating and progressing the patient to a more functional level. Literature supporting these concepts and techniques is presented throughout the course to provide clinicians the information necessary to practice evidence-based medicine.
