Examination and Treatment of Shoulder Injury in the Overhead Athlete is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Nov 02 - 03, 2019 at Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Ewing, New Jersey, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is designed PT’s, PTA’s AT’s and OT’s to optimize their knowledge and skills when treating shoulder injuries. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credits. CME : This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18 contact hours/1.8 ceu’s for DC, NY or IL therapists. Conference Description : This two-day advanced course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines when treating overhead athletes from youth to adult. With an increase in early sport specialization, this course will highlight the risks and benefits of early sport specialization in pediatrics and how care differs from the skeletally mature adult. Participants will receive the latest research on Tommy John repairs for UCL tears, shoulder labral pathologies and pediatric diagnoses that are seen in the overhead athletes. This course will focus on the science and art behind performing a comprehensive evaluation and creating a well-rounded, complete plan of care for overhead athlete. Over 40% of the class is spent hands-on with lab session where clinicians are practicing evaluation skills, manual skills and advanced therapeutic exercises that can be utilized the next day in clinics with your athletes. A special focus will be on getting overhead athletes back into the game safely with utilizing video throwing analysis and evidence based return to play protocols. With the growing changes in the health care coverage, the overall course objective is equip the participants with the most up to date evidence to improve overhead athletes’ outcomes quicker. A comprehensive course packet will include pictures, references and clinical pearls for quick reference in the clinic. Conference Objectives are : • Identify the changes in injury incidence and the associated risks in sports for the overhead athlete. • Identify common overhead athlete diagnoses and their signs and symptoms. • Review and perform an evidence based upper extremity evaluation. • Discuss the literature behind manual therapy techniques as a treatment for the overhead athlete. • Perform soft tissue mobility and joint mobilization techniques for the upper extremity with emphasis on the overhead athlete. • Explain the role of the lower extremities in the overhead athlete. • Discuss and apply the literature behind therapeutic exercises and their progression for the overhead athlete. • Identify and perform the current evidence for return to play criterion for the overhead athlete. • Discuss optimal throwing mechanics and apply this understanding to treating overhead athletes. • Discuss current literature on performance enhancement protocol for the overhead athlete. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
