The biomechanics along with the anatomic structure of the shoulder can lead to multiple issues for all patient populations. This presentation will cover how to assess for common movement impairments of the scapula and glenohumeral joint. Additionally, exercise and manual therapy interventions to improve these movement impairments will be addressed.
1. Recognize patterns of impairments in the scapular and glenohumeral region
2. How to specifically assess scapular movement impairments
3. How to specifically assess for impairments in precision of glenohumeral movement
4. Exercise and manual therapy considerations to improve movement impairments
5. Recognize components of 3 main pain mechanisms to guide decision making using a BioPsychoSocial approach to neuromusculoskeletal pain
