About the Course: 
Shoulder pain is prevalent in between 2.4% and 26% of the population, resulting in significant financial burden, pain and loss of quality of life. According to the APTA’s Clinical Practice Guidelines, mobilization and exercise are important components of shoulder pain management. Too often clinicians are ready to perform joint manipulation/mobilization with disregard for the soft tissue component of the stiff shoulder. Myofascial restrictions may limit shoulder mobility and function and must be addressed as part of a plan of care. When fascia becomes scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, its tension adversely impacts functional mobility and physical activity. Manual therapy may include myofascial work to release tension and pain and restore mobility and function. Identify fascial restrictions using motion testing and palpation. Apply specific manual and movement interventions to address mobility deficits, improve circulation, and decrease pain in people presenting with shoulder pain and mobility deficits to achieve improved functional outcomes.

Course Objectives: 
At the end of this course the participant will be able to: 
1. Identify the anatomy and function of the fascia 
2. Recognize how myofascial release (MFR) / soft tissue mobilization (STM) may be used to modify scar tissue restrictions that limit functional mobility 
3. List the theory and evidence supporting myofascial and movement as part of a manual therapy intervention to improve mobility and function 
4. List myofascial and movement techniques to the shoulder/cervical/scapular region 
5. Identify how to lengthen restricted tissue, reduce pain, and improve functional mobility
