This course is a lab-intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system that will train the participants in the management of the Shoulder region. Participants will learn to treat and assess the Thoracic Girdle, Shoulder Girdle, and Intrinsic Motions of the Glenhumoral Joint.

By the end of the course the participant will;

1)  Demonstrate through small group discussion, monitored by the instructor, the ability to list:
•   The underlying principles of a functional shoulder evaluation
•   The biomechanical principles which govern shoulder function
•   The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient shoulder function
•    The functional interrelationship of the body’s systems and regions necessary for efficient shoulder function

2) Correctly utilize the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately:   
   Evaluate the functional capacity of the shoulder region
•   Identify the primary impairments which are limiting functional capacity

3) Perform the manual, observational and problem solving skills to:
•   Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified limitations of shoulder functional capacity
•    Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary for efficient shoulder actions.
•    Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate enhanced shoulder function.

4) Identify through the appropriate manual skills the mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments and to design and implement a treatment program to restore mobility and functional capacity to the following structures;
•     First and second rib
•     Upper Thoracic Spine
•     Shoulder Girdle
•     Clavicle
•     Glenohumeral intrinsic motions
•    Glenohumeral End of Range motions

5) Demonstrate, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to perform the appropriate manual skills to identify and treat impairments of the following structures:
•   Soft Tissues of the cervicothoracic, shoulder girdle, and glenohumeral regions
•   Articular Structures of the cervicothoracic, shoulder girdle, and glenohumeral
•   Neurovascular Structures

6) Perform, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to problem solve and utilize the appropriate manual skills of PNF to treat identified impairments of neuromuscular function and motor control for the
•   Cervicothoracic
    Shoulder girdle
•   Glenohumeral regions

7) Through a case scenario, will develop an appropriate home program, based on shoulder impairments, utilizing the principles of home program development   presented in the course. 

8) Participate in guided discussions, related to the current evidence for shoulder assessment and treatment. Citing the findings from one recent research article that supports a treatment strategy for the shoulder region.

9) Given a case scenario the participant will DEVELOP three (3) structural and functional goals for patient care.”  

Instructor Note  
The instructors advertised for the course are the intended instructors.  The final number of instructors will be determined by course enrollment.  Every effort is made to hold the course with the scheduled instructors.  Course refunds or transfers will not be granted based on a change of instructors.  Please note there may be instructor changes without prior notice.

Multiple instructors are scheduled for each course.  However, the actual number of instructors at a course will be determined by final enrollment

2 Days, 16 Contact Hours

Break food will not be provided during the course.  Lunch for both days will be on your own. We suggest you bring a water bottle and feel free to bring your own snacks. 

Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act.

Each attendee is expected to attend all hours of instruction to receive a Certificate of Completion. Any exceptions to this policy must be pre-approved in writing by the IPA Directors.

Lab Clothing
Each participant's body must be accessible for observation and treatment.  Sports bra or halter-top and shorts are appropriate for women.  Shorts or swim trunks for men.  Please refrain from wearing large or sharp jewelry.  A sweat suit is advisable between demonstrations, as temperatures may vary in the room.
