Current clinical practice in the treatment of rotator cuff and other shoulder injuries typically consists of exercises for strength, flexibility, and functional movement as administered in formal, supervised settings. Recent investigations have centered on patients’ participation in home-based exercises with guidance and motivation provided through the use of mobile phones. The appropriate employment of mobile phone technology may provide increased patient participation, improved outcomes in a more convenient, affordable format.
This course evaluates the evidence found in the literature and introduces the healthcare professional to the advantages and applications of phone/distance based exercise and rehabilitation programs. Several methods of guidance and information delivery will be discussed as will the financial effects of distance based therapy. The healthcare professional will gain an understanding of the opportunities offered by distance based therapies (telemedicine) and be prepared to identify possible cases to which to apply these programs.
