Overview

Why this course?

The medical literature is constantly evolving and practitioners often find it hard to stay current with best practice guidelines. The shoulder is a complex structure involving four joints, working together to allow multi-planar motion. Consequently, patients who injure their shoulder, need to be closely evaluated as shoulder injuries can involve multiple structures which can impact recovery. Shoulder injuries among an active population are quite common. Studies have illustrated that roughly 15-20% of sports injuries occur to the shoulder. The most common injuries include dislocation, sprains, cartilage, tendon injuries, and fractures.

In order to provide optimal care, clinicians must be familiar with shoulder anatomy and recognize common signs and symptoms of injury. Practitioners should utilize appropriate clinical tests and imaging in order to make the correct diagnosis.
