The Shoulder

Management of Shoulder Pain after a Cerebrovascular Accident or Traumatic Brain Injury

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Shoulder pain after a cerebrovascular accident or traumatic brain injury is a common but often under-recognized problem. It is due to a number of causes including inferior subluxation, spasticity, adhesive capsulitis, and heterotopic ossification. Many of these are amenable to surgical intervention.

Principles for Shoulder Rehabilitation - Part 1

R400.00

3 CEUs

    These courses are based on the physiology and biomechanics of the shoulder. They provide very effective rehabilitation protocols in terms of return to play. They will assist you to diagnose not only local anatomical lesions, such as rotator cuff tear or Bankart lesion, but also the biomechanical deficits that exist in the shoulder girdle and spine. 

    But that’s not all. Distant disorders such as inflexibilities of hip rotation, short hamstrings, or the stiff back also often contribute to shoulder abnormalities. The course will enable you to make a complete diagnosis and to look beyond the injured tissues to tissues that may be overloaded. 

    You will also learn to detect functional biomechanical deficits as well as the subclinical adaptations that sports people use to try to maintain performance.

Diagnostic Ultrasound of the Shoulder — A method for experts only?

R400.00

3 CEUs

    Only practitioners with significant clinical experience in diagnostic ultrasound examination should attempt to use the technology to diagnose something as complex as tears of the rotator cuff or for pathology in the long head of the biceps muscle.  Right?

    This on-line course offers some answers as it examines the outcome achieved by an orthopaedic surgeon with little experience in ultrasound.

    The conclusions of this course may surprise you. And help you to put your own ambitions to possibly broaden your own diagnostic horizons into perspective.

Frozen Shoulder

R400.00

3 CEUs

    The management of frozen shoulder remains controversial.  Many different therapeutic approaches have been advocated and no single method of treatment has been shown to have a clearly superior outcome. 

    This article discusses a method which provides for the treatment of shoulder pain and stiffness by allowing patients to exercise with less pain earlier in the rehabilitation process.  The method comprises a unique approach utilizing the following four components simultaneously from the onset of treatment: isometric muscle contraction (IMC); dynamic oscillatory stretching (DOS) and/or passive accessory mobilization and mindfulness.
