Aim: The Challenge of the Rotator Cuff
Shoulder pain is now the third highest musculoskeletal complaint in the UK and set to rise given the increasing needs of a growing elderly population.

This symposium invites internationally renowned speakers to discuss the aetiology and management of rotator cuff disease.
The day will cover key areas including; epidemiology, clinical assessment, injection/therapy and surgical management. The afternoon session will include discussion of clinical cases studies utilising the expertise of the faculty.
The day is applicable to all clinicians; physiotherapists and doctors including GPs and surgeons.
