Description

Think past the pulleys and bands and develop fresh ideas for treating your shoulder patients! With the prevalence of shoulder injuries across all patient populations, a thorough understanding of multiple treatment options is imperative for every rehabilitation therapist. Learning new ways to properly assess and treat both surgical and non-surgical shoulder cases can improve patient outcomes and provide long-lasting, positive results.

Acclaimed clinician and speaker Robert McCabe presents this dynamic 2-day comprehensive shoulder rehab course designed to enhance your knowledge of cutting-edge assessment and treatment options. Learn multiple assessments to help you more accurately uncover the cause of the patient’s diagnosis in order to provide more targeted and effective treatment. Through interactive labs, explore proper progressions and regressions of corrective exercises. Hands-on practice with Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization will give you a strong foundation to utilize tools to enhance shoulder therapy.  You will leave this course well prepared to successfully implement functional and comprehensive treatment plans for your shoulder patients.
