Course Description:

The main focus of this section is to assess and restore the articular integrity of the shoulder girdle in clients with stiff shoulder joint. Different sources and causes for shoulder pain, restriction and associated disabilities will also be discussed physical examination includes those observational and palpation tests that explore any impaired or altered movement patterns in the shoulder complex as a result of restricted range of gleno-humeral joint motion or compensatory scapular dyskinesia. The integrity of the other related joints (AC, SC and upper thoracic spines) will also be taken into consideration. The most appropriate physiological and accessory tests to examine different kinds of barriers to movement (through the range resistance & end-feel) and associated symptoms (pain, spasm, etc) will be discussed and practiced. Finally, to restore a pain-free near-normal function, application of mobilization techniques (sustained/graded oscillatory) to  shoulder girdle articulations along with stabilization exercises  to both  previously unstable and newly mobilized shoulder joint aspects  will be taught and practiced in small groups.
