The target audience for this medical event is PT, SPT, PTA (with supervising PT). Each participant is expected to attend all hours of instruction to receive a Certificate of Completion. Any exceptions to this policy must be pre-approved in writing by the IPA Directors. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16.00 CE Contact Hours.

Course Purpose :

This course is a lab-intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy system that will train the participants in the management of the Shoulder region. Participants will learn to treat and assess the Thoracic Girdle, Shoulder Girdle, and Intrinsic Motions of the Glenohumeral Joint.

Course Objectives :

• Demonstrate through small group discussion, monitored by the instructor, the ability to list:
○ The underlying principles of a functional shoulder evaluation
○ The biomechanical principles which govern shoulder function
○ The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient shoulder function
○ The functional interrelationship of the body’s systems and regions necessary for efficient shoulder function
• Correctly utilize the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately:
○ Evaluate the functional capacity of the shoulder region
○ Identify the primary impairments which are limiting functional capacity
• Perform the manual, observational and problem-solving skills to:
○ Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified limitations of shoulder functional capacity
○ Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary for efficient shoulder actions.
○ Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate enhanced shoulder function.
• Identify through the appropriate manual skills the mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments and to design and implement a treatment program to restore mobility and functional capacity to the following structures;
○ First and second rib
○ Upper Thoracic Spine
○ Shoulder Girdle
○ Clavicle
○ Glenohumeral intrinsic motions
○ Glenohumeral End of Range motions
• Demonstrate, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to perform the appropriate manual skills to identify and treat impairments of the following structures:
○ Soft Tissues of the cervicothoracic, shoulder girdle, and glenohumeral regions
○ Articular Structures of the cervicothoracic, shoulder girdle, and glenohumeral
○ Neurovascular Structures
• Perform, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to problem solve and utilize the appropriate manual skills of PNF to treat identified impairments of neuromuscular function and motor control for the
○ Cervicothoracic
○ Shoulder girdle
○ Glenohumeral regions
• Through a case scenario, will develop an appropriate home program, based on shoulder impairments, utilizing the principles of home program development presented in the course.
• Participate in guided discussions, related to the current evidence for shoulder assessment and treatment. Citing the findings from one recent research article that supports a treatment strategy for the shoulder region.
• Given a case scenario the participant will DEVELOP three (3) structural and functional goals for patient care.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
