This course, from Lenny Macrina will teach you how to design an effective shoulder rehabilitation program based on current clinical evidence and scientific research. The anatomy and biomechanics of the glenohumeral joint will be reviewed from an evidence-based perspective including how to understand and recognize the pathomechanics of various shoulder injuries. Finally, learners will see a demonstration with a model of specific clinical examination tests & maneuvers for the shoulder complex and gain detailed knowledge of exercises that are appropriate for the rehabilitation of various shoulder pathologies.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

Download Learning Objectives

1. Anatomy and Biomechanics

Review key anatomical concepts of structures including the glenoid, glenoid labrum, glenohumeral capsule, and the ligaments of the GH joint. Structures covered include: the coroacromial arch, rotator interval, AC joint, SC joint, scapulothoracic joint, and others. Understand the biomechanics of the shoulder joint, including arthrokinematics and osteokinematics.

2. Rehabilitation Implementation

Learn how to design and implement an effective rehabilitation program based on clinical and scientific research. Be able to perform and interpret specific clinical examination tests & maneuvers for the shoulder.Understand the prescription of optimal exercises for the glenohumeral joint that are appropriate for the patient’s pathology.

3. Rehabilitation and Common Exercise Demonstrations

Understand and be able to implement common exercises for the rotator cuff and scapula stabilizers. Exercises covered include: external rotation/internal rotation tubing with manual resistance, full can, sidelying external rotation, W’s, standing extension, prone row, prone extension, prone 90/90, prone full can, prone horizontal abduction, supine serratus punch, push up with a plus, dynamic hug, forearm wall slides with T-band, rhythmic stabilization (RS), and 45° abduction.
