Course Rationale

This course will provide attendees with a relevant review of anatomy and physiology and how it relates to function of the upper extremity both in dysfunctional and optimal states.  Upon completing this course, participants will have a deeper understanding of how the rotator cuff works including mechanisms and contributions from other regions.  This deeper understanding will allow the participant to more completely and fully assess and manage patients with rotator cuff dysfunction.  This course will explore why scapular stabilization is so important to the upper kinetic chain including evaluating the evidence based positional recruitment of open and closed kinetic chain exercises, this will allow participants to develop improved plans of care and exercise progressions for their patients with shoulder dysfunction

Course Objectives

  • Define the components of function in the upper extremity
  • Describe the true function of the rotator cuff as the protective mechanism of the shoulder
  • Explain why scapular stabilization is the core of the upper kinetic chain
  • Evaluate the evidence based positional recruitment of open and closed kinetic chain exercises
  • Discuss the “missing link” in treating the geriatric shoulder
  • Provide updates on hands-on mobility skills focused to the upper extremity
