An in-depth look at shoulder conditions.
Shoulders are complex structures and can cause confusion in clinical practice. Just thinking of muscles alone the number is immmense and intimidating and that’s not even considering the 17 which attach to the scapula. This makes clinical reasoning and understanding what you are seeing difficult to interpret. But fear not as we have some excellent new courses as part of our new shoulder programme to help you cut through the complexity straight to the most common pathology to look out for in your clinical practice.

The Courses in The Programme
This course is comprised of 3 courses each one is as excellent as the next. All created by Ian Horsley.
Sternoclavicular Joint Dysfunction
The Sternoclavicular joint is the only skeletal articulation between the axial skeleton and the upper limb. Despite its importance, it is often ignored in the physiotherapy assessment and management of shoulder pain. A minor dysfunction of the sternoclavicular joint can be manifested as a major shoulder and arm dysfunction and pain. This course explores the anatomy, biomechanics, assessment, and management of the sternoclavicular joint.

Subacromial Space Impingement – Space Invaders
The shoulder is one of the most complex regions of the body to rehabilitate. Among the most common reasons to experience shoulder pain, is the dreaded shoulder impingement syndrome (SIS). Understood to be a mechanism rather than a diagnosis, Dr. Ian Horsley explores this often mis-understood classification of shoulder pain and outlines the underlying anatomical considerations as well as the best rehabilitation strategies for clinical practice. This course is ideally suited to any clinician looking to better understand the biomechanics of the shoulder and how to effectively identify and manage the various types of shoulder impingements.

Frozen Shoulder – Do We Have the Cold, Hard Facts?
Adhesive capsulitis, or more commonly known as frozen shoulder, is a debilitating and chronic shoulder condition that is often seen within a clinical setting.

Join Dr. Ian Horsley, a leading upper extremity physiotherapist in the United Kingdom, as he discusses the roots of frozen shoulder, how to identify it in a clinic and what are the best evidence-best treatments presently available.
