Anterior, posterior, and multidirectional shoulder instability can affect many different types of athletes and requires the therapist to understand best practices for each specific treatment and rehabilitation. This course provides participants with advances in examination, evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment strategies for patients with glenohumeral instability. Expect to learn innovative and creative treatment interventions from Lenny Macrina through his insightful lectures, which emphasize suggested treatment protocols and outcome measures. The dynamic case studies presented facilitate effective treatment. Join Macrina as he provides a comprehensive overview of shoulder instability to prepare those treating shoulder conditions and those taking the SCS examination.

Lenny Macrina delves into treatment and rehabilitation by first asking the question, what about immobilization? He then covers surgical interventions, rehabilitation following stabilization, and finishes with important post-operative principles.
Three case studies are presented to test your knowledge and provide practical application of the information and theory in this course. Gain experience in case questions and examples in this final chapter.
