Rotator Cuff Injuries and Interventions: A Physical Therapy Perspective is organized by Western Schools and will be held from Jun 14, 2017 - Jun 14, 2020.
The purpose of this course is to provide physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with a current, comprehensive overview of rotator cuff injuries and the role of physical therapy examination, diagnosis and interventions, as well as review alternative and surgical approaches to the problem. This course will provide an in-depth review of relevant shoulder anatomy and biomechanics, examine potential causes for rotator cuff pathology, describe treatment techniques commonly used in individuals with rotator cuff pathology, and review indications and complications relating to rotator cuff surgery. The focus of this intermediate level course is to explore the current best evidence to assist in reducing the deficits in knowledge related to the cause of rotator cuff pathology, provide updated evidence related to diagnostic accuracy and effective interventions while highlighting the areas still in need of future research.
