Shoulder assessment and treatment:

Clinical tips and tricks Dr Margie Olds

February 22-23 AUCKLAND


This course is perfect for physiotherapists who want to advance their skills in the area of assessment and treatment of common shoulder presentations.

There will be a brief review of clinical tests, but the assessment aspect of the course will mainly focus on the clinical utility of assessment techniques (i.e. when and why to use specific assessment tools)

Topics covered include:

  • How to undertake a comprehensive and time-sensitive shoulder assessment
  • Assessment techniques – when, why and which technique to use
  • Traumatic and Atraumatic shoulder instability
  • Rotator Cuff pathology and treatment
  • Scapula dyskinesis: What is it and what to do about it?
  • Labral pathology: how to detect it, and what to do when you think there is a labral problem.

This course will be over 2 days (Saturday  and Sunday) and will use a case based approach to illustrate examples of both assessment and treatment. Practical examples of assessment and treatment techniques will be incorporated to ensure clinicians have new skills they can use when they return to the clinic.

It is an excellent pre-cursor to the Advanced shoulder course and will cover assessment and treatment of common shoulder presentation
