Lyn Watson – Level I Shoulder Course


This course offers the opportunity to gain extensive clinical insight into the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and progression of shoulder rehabilitation from a specialist shoulder physiotherapist. The course is extensively based on current research and provides “cutting edge” information as to new treatment techniques that are available as well as evidence-based practices that therapists can integrate. The course will provide the therapist with many mobilisation and taping techniques, that have immediate clinical application. It will also teach a logical assessment strategy for glenohumeral and scapulothoracic mechanics that will form a framework around which the therapist can diagnose specific muscle dysfunction and select appropriate rehabilitation strategies. The course provides the structure to allow for development of clinical reasoning skills applicable to many common shoulder pathologies. The course will also explore what is and what is not substantiated by research in common clinical practice both in conservative and surgical treatment of the shoulder.
