Shoulder injuries are one of the most common things massage therapists deal with. Get an in-depth understanding of how the shoulder works, why injuries develop, and what you can do about it! Pathologies covered include:

  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Rotator Cuff Injury
  • Bicipital Tendonitis
  • Impingement Syndrome
  • Shoulder Instability

How many of your clients complain of shoulder issues? The shoulder joint has the most range of motion in the entire body, and so it has sacrificed stability for mobility. This can create some vulnerability. This course will teach you about the most common pathologies that affect this joint, with videos and illustrations to help you along the way. Just as with the other courses, you will learn how to create assessment and treatment plans using techniques you already know!

  • Did you know that full abduction of the shoulder requires the movement of the humerus, scapula, clavicle, first and second ribs, and the upper thoracic vertebra?
  • Did you know that multiple subscapularis trigger points can mimic frozen shoulder?
  • Would you believe that a rotator cuff injury may be completely painless?

Each pathology will cover an overview, causes, symptoms, assessment, appropriate treatment techniques, homecare and contraindications. Vibrant illustrations and six videos along with a text manual will guide you through this course.
