Conference Brochure

Overhead Athlete: A Comprehensive Treatment Approach is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Oct 17 - 18, 2020 at More Physical Therapy, Burlingame, California, United States of America. 

Accreditation:
This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course.

Course Description:
Overhead athletes of all ages are capable of accelerating their upper extremity to speeds that routinely exceed 7000 degrees/second. The role of and interaction between the joints, tissues, and segments involved in this process is very complex, but often results in injuries to the shoulder and elbow.

This course will examine common areas of dysfunction in the overhead athlete in the context of an understandable biomechanical framework that addresses the entire kinetic chain. Treatment approaches will emerge from an enhanced understanding of this framework and will be discussed in terms manual techniques and appropriate treatment progression. Clarification and reinforcement of course objectives will be provided through 50% lecture/discussion, visual aids (pictures/video), case examples, demonstration, and lab. 

Course Objectives
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Recognize 3 biomechanical characteristics that contribute to increased injury risk in the arm of the overhead athlete.
• Given a mechanical fault in the performance of the overhead sports movement, provide 2 biomechanical contributors to the mechanical fault. 
• Recognize 3 sociocultural factors that contribute to the development of chronic/overuse injuries in the overhead athlete
• Identify 3 postural characteristics common in the presentation of the overhead athlete.
• Given a specific joint/tissue dysfunction, provide 2 biomechanical contributors and 2 biomechanical consequences for the respective sport. 
• Define the role of 3 different core muscles in the transfer of energy from the lower extremity to the upper extremity.
• Define the role of 3 different scapular muscles in the transfer of energy from the trunk to the arm.
• Correctly identify and perform mobilization/release of 3 scapular muscles.
• Correctly identify and perform mobilization/release of 3 trunk and/or hip muscles.
• Properly execute a functional strength assessment of upper extremity, lower extremity and trunk.
• Identify a dysfunctional movement pattern during functional movement assessment.
• Develop 2 motor retraining exercises that addresses dysfunctional movements identified during your movement/manual assessment.
• Develop 2 dynamic exercises that would reinforce motor retraining

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
