Comprehensive Treatment of the Shoulder

The shoulder is one of the most difficult joints to treat because the true cause of the problem is often missed. This course will provide you with a systematic approach to find the true driver of shoulder dysfunction as well as an entirely unique way to treat the shoulder girdle complex and help your patients quickly return to a high level of function. We’ll focus on the concept of hypo-hyper compensation, while incorporating joint mobilizations in ways not often shown. Plus you’ll learn myofascial release, taping techniques and a fresh way to look at muscle re-education and strengthening of the shoulder!

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic.
