Evaluation and Treatment of Adhesive Capsulitis: A Paradigm Shift


Course Description

Adhesive capsulitis is one of the most challenging shoulder disorders encountered by rehabilitation clinicians. The differential diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis vs. shoulder stiffness is important to designing a proper rehabilitation program, establishing an accurate prognosis and in delivering efficient interventions. There has been a recent paradigm shift in the proper rehabilitation for patients with adhesive capsulitis that is based on a customized approach.

The focus of this course is on this new evidence-based paradigm. Earn the confidence of patients and referral sources by understanding the current evidence-based treatment techniques and avoiding frustration and miscommunication that can result from following a traditional approach. What is the precise amount of force that should be delivered with manual techniques in order to maximize outcome and minimize overloading the tissues?  This is a critical question that this course will answer. Video presentations of effective clinician and patient-directed effective soft tissue and joint mobilizations/ stretches will provide the rehabilitation specialist with additional tools to optimize outcome with these challenging patients.
