The shoulder is designed for a great degree of motion in all planes. This mobility comes at the cost of stability as the shoulder is the joint at greatest risk for instability due to athletically-induced trauma. Shoulder injuries can be devastating in athletes, particularly in those whose sport requires strong overhead motions, and account for about 6% of all injuries sustained in an active population. Athletes also have a higher risk for recurrence, making proper diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation crucial.
Exclusive to HomeCEUConnection.com, “The Shoulder Series: Rehabilitation Options For Instability and Injuries” draws on the skills and experience of a team of highly qualified and talented sports physicians to present leading edge techniques and treatment plans for shoulder injuries.
Initially taught as individual lessons at the prestigious Andrews Institute in Gulf Breeze, Florida this exclusive series presents an in-depth exploration of the potential injuries of the rotator cuff, and provides a comprehensive plan of attack for diagnosis, treatment and postoperative rehabilitation.
This series is ideal for any rehabilitation professional seeking to enhance their knowledge of shoulder instability and injuries in all populations.
This Seminar-On-Demand is 6 hours 26 minutes in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).

This section of the Shoulder Series examines the surgical anatomy of shoulder instability and reviews diagnosis, examination and imaging. Treatment options and rehabilitation recommendations are made for common injuries.
Total runtime: 1 hour
This section of the series focuses on surgical and non-surgical options for acute and chronic injury to the AC joint.
Total runtime: 35 minutes
Rehabilitation of Selected Shoulder Conditions
This section focuses on clinical implications of evaluative aspects and procedures for the shoulder complex and examines treatment techniques and exercises. Also discussed are current concepts in strengthening of the shoulder complex musculature.
Total runtime: 40 minutes
Evaluation and Treatment of Scapular Dyskinesia
This session begins with a basic anatomical review of the shoulder-scapula complex before delving into functional anatomy, arthrokinematics, and surgery used to address multi-directional instability.
Total runtime: 1 hour, 14 minutes
MRI of the Shoulder
This section of the Shoulder Series guides the sports medicine professional in an exploration of the anatomy of the upper shoulder and the normal imaging appearance. The professional will learn to identify major muscle groups of the upper extremity, modalities used in imaging and the connection between the anatomy and common injuries.
Total runtime: 1 hour, 16 minutes
Upper Extremity Biomechanics & Rehab Principles
This session guides the sports medicine professional on identifying biomechanical risk factors for upper extremity injuries in youth athletes & aging populations as well as prevention and rehabilitation strategies.
Total runtime: 55 minutes
Neurovasuclar Problems of the Throwing Shoulder
This concluding section focuses on the anatomy of the suprascapular nerve and possible compression sites and offers up clinical manifestations and surgical treatment of suprascapular nerve compression, quadralateral space syndrome, axilliary artery thrombosis, and thorasic outlet syndrome.
Total runtime: 46 minutes
