Over time, we have learned a tremendous amount regarding the various systems and chains throughout the body. Dysfunction at any point in the system will cause pain and injury in unpredictable ways. Finding these dysfunctions and correcting them is the key to long-term health and function for any and all individuals, especially those who are active and demand more from their bodies. This innovative short course will focus on managing the post-op shoulder patient. We will not only focus on the operative site itself, but demonstrate how correcting dysfunctions in seemingly distant body parts will have an immediate and lasting effect on joint ROM, stability, strength and overall function. A series of systematic goals and guidelines will be presented to appropriately progress the patient through the complete rehab process. You will leave this course with a new set of clinical tools and exercise progressions for training the human machine.
