This course on evidence-based treatment of the shoulder is presented by Dr. Eric Hegedus. Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to recognize the more prevalent shoulder pathologies seen in musculoskeletal practice and gain an understanding of the etiology behind each of the pathologies. The concordant techniques used to target the primary impairment are explained, as well as the adjunctive techniques used to target the primary impairment and secondary contributors, and the techniques used to target global conditional issues. Learners will analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications. Current research is presented throughout the course to provide learners with the proper tools for evidence-based management of these patients. This course is part of a 19 course comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.
Dr. Eric J Hegedus has had a notable 21-year career as a leader and innovator in physical therapist education, research, and clinical practice and is founding Chair of the Doctor of Physical Therapy Department at High Point University. Dr Hegedus also is founder and director of Targeted Enhanced Athletic Movement (TEAM). TEAM is a community-based…
Recognize the proposed benefit to classifying shoulder disorders and treatments by similarity. Understand that classifications do not need to be mutually exclusive.
3. Local Treatments of the Shoulder
Describe evidence behind concordant based interventions targeted to the primary impairment. Demonstrate shoulder oriented movement based techniques. Demonstrate shoulder specific stretching and strengthening techniques.
4. Regional Treatments of the Shoulder
Review the adjunctive techniques used to target the secondary or regional contributors to the primary impairment. Analyze the effectiveness of each technique for treatment within the classifications.
5. Global Treatments of the Shoulder
Review and apply techniques used to target global issues. Analyze the effectiveness of the kinetic chain in return to sport.
