THE SPORTING SHOULDER: CAN WE DO IT BETTER?
JO GIBSON: THE SPORTING SHOULDER: CAN WE DO IT BETTER?
This two-day course will consider the current literature and applications in management of the sports-person with shoulder pain. It will include:
– Dynamic stability of the shoulder complex: Applying the evidence to everyday practice
– Sports specificity: Myths and reality
– The kinetic chain: Performance, capacity and load transfer
– The strength versus movement debate: Where are we now?
– Setting the system up for success: Is it all over for manual therapy and coloured tape?!
– Motor learning and the sensorimotor system: Opportunities and future directions?
– RTP and injury prevention: Future- proofing athletes- is it possible?
– The psychology of injury and return to play: getting communication right.
– To present the current literature regarding dynamic stability of the shoulder complex and explore the application to clinical assessment and treatment in sports related shoulder pathology.
– To present the current literature regarding the pathophysiology of sports related shoulder conditions.
– To consider the role of the kinetic chain in performance, pathology and injury risk in sports related shoulder pain.
– To demonstrate key treatment approaches based on the current evidence to address movement dysfunction in sports related shoulder pain.
– To present developments in the pain sciences and motor learning literature and their applications in optimising outcomes of treatment and potential for reducing injury risk/recurrence.
– To present current dilemmas in return to play and how to ensure the shoulder is ‘ready for action’.
– To consider the communication literature and psychology of injury and how clinicians can utilise this to improve outcomes and engagement.
– Understand current concepts of dynamic stability of the shoulder joint and sports specific applications.
– Understand current theories relating to the pathophysiology of sports-related shoulder conditions and their impact on dynamic stability of the shoulder joint.
– Understand the role of the kinetic chain in performance, pathology and potential risk in sports related shoulder pain.
– Understand key assessment and treatment tools for the successful treatment of sports related shoulder pain.
– Understand key applications of motor learning and pain science literature to enhance treatment outcomes and consider potential for prevention.
– Understand key aspects of injury psychology and elements of communication that can enhance engagement and outcomes.
