Evidenced-Inspired Approaches to the Shoulder Complex


About the Course
The shoulder complex is one of the leading areas of musculoskeletal pain. Through poor posturing and overuse of the upper extremity, a variety of painful conditions can develop leading to local pain in the shoulder but contributing to cervical and lumbar spine pain as well. Patients often are treated for months with passive modalities and exercise with minimal change in symptoms. This course introduces manual evaluation techniques of the connective tissue surrounding the shoulder complex. Once tissue specific impairments have been identified, manual therapy techniques can be selected that will directly affect the target tissue to quickly reduce the patient's symptoms while improving function.

This course is a video, on demand course.

This course is approved by the Florida Board of Massage Therapy as a hands-on credit, relevant to and focused on massage therapy techniques, skills and protocols.
