Conference Summary

Comprehensive Treatment of the Shoulder is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Dec 05 - 06, 2020 at Charlotte, North Carolina, United States of America.

Course Description:
​This course shows the clinician an entirely new and unique way to treat the shoulder girdle complex. It focuses on the concept of hypo-hyper compensation. While symptoms in the shoulder are commonly in the glenohumeral joint, the driver of the symptoms is commonly elsewhere in the shoulder girdle complex. The class incorporates joint mobilization in ways not often shown along with myofascial release, taping techniques and a fresh way to look at muscle re-education and strengthening of the shoulder. 

As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.

Course Objectives:
At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:
• Accurately describe anatomical structures covered in the manual and their application to shoulder joint complex mechanics, shoulder movement and shoulder dysfunction.
• Accurately describe the treatment concepts for shoulder joint mobilizations and myofascial release of the shoulder as discussed in the manual.
• State the 5 treatment principles for shoulder taping.
• Independently discuss strengthening and movement re-education.
• Demonstrate each of the 8 joint mobilizations, 5 taping techniques, and 7 myofascial release techniques as shown in the course manual with proficiency and skill.
