Overview

A 2-day Workshop by Dr Jeremy Lewis, Consultant Physiotherapist, Independent Prescriber and Professor of Musculoskeletal Research, London Shoulder Clinic

Frozen shoulder and rotator cuff related shoulder pain are one of the most common injuries. With the prevalence of these injuries, it is imperative for physiotherapists to equip themselves with an evidence-based approach that can effectively diagnose and treat adults with such conditions.This 2-day workshop will employ evidence-based approach incorporating theory, small group discussions and clinical case scenarios to develop knowledge, skills and attribute for assessing and treating patients with frozen shoulder and rotator cuff related shoulder pain.Besides acquiring advanced clinical skills, you will learn to articulate the clinical reasoning process involved in planning, progression and evaluation of physiotherapy treatment. Surgical and non-surgical management will also be presented and discussed.

What You’ll Learn

Day 1 Learning Objectives

  1. Develop an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the historical background, epidemiology and patho-aetiology of frozen shoulder
  2. Gain proficiency in developing a comprehensive physical assessment and evaluation strategy as well as appropriate management plan for patients with frozen shoulder
  3. Review recommendations for alternative treatments for frozen shoulder (such as acupuncture) and be aware of the level of evidence supporting those suggestions
  4. Review the research evidence evaluating the use of injections as part of the management for frozen shoulder based on the risks associated with these procedures
  5. Develop a greater confidence in the use of exercise therapy, hands on therapy and other techniques for the treatment of frozen shoulder as well as to evaluate the efficacy of these techniques

Day 2 Learning Objectives

  1. Develop a better understanding and knowledge of the clinical anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle
  2. Appreciate the importance of taking a biopsychosocial approach to patient management
  3. Develop greater confidence in the physical assessment of the shoulder region and a better understanding of the evidence for the use of the selected assessment techniques
  4. Develop greater understanding and knowledge of various pathologies of the shoulder girdle
  5. Review the evidence underpinning the pathology, and the assessment and management of various shoulder conditions, especially rotator cuff related shoulder pain
  6. Review the research evidence evaluating the use of injections as part of the management of musculoskeletal disorders of the shoulder
  7. Develop greater confidence in the use of exercise therapy and other techniques for managing shoulder conditions and evaluation of the efficacy of the techniques, balanced against the evidence base for using these techniques

Who Should Attend

This workshop is specially designed for physiotherapists who are supporting patients in rehabilitation of frozen shoulder and rotator cuff related shoulder pain.
Other healthcare and non-healthcare professionals who are interested in rehabilitation of the shoulder are encouraged to attend the  1-day Physiotherapy Symposium: Recent Advances on Rehabilitation of the Shoulder on 24 January 2017 instead.

 

Certificate and Assessment

A Certificate of Participation will be issued to participants who attend 100% of the workshop.

Rotator Cuff Related Shoulder Pain

This theoretical and practical session involves a very detailed and in-depth review of this multi-factorial problem. The current evidence-based research across a number of professions evidence regarding the aetiology and pathology of this condition will be presented in detail. This session includes a critical appraisal of the use of injection therapy in the management of RCRSP and critically compares outcomes between surgical & non-surgical intervention. Evidence-based management will be presented in detail. Lifestyle issues and patient scenarios and videos are included.
