Lyn Watson Level 1 Shoulder Course: April 16,17 2016 – Guelph, ON
The Level 1 course offers the opportunity to gain extensive clinical insight into the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and progression of shoulder rehabilitation from Lyn Watson. It is based on current research and provides “cutting edge” information as to new treatment techniques that are available as well as evidence based best practices that therapists can integrate. The course will provide the therapist with many mobilisation techniques and taping, that have immediate clinical application. It will also teach a logical assessment strategy for glenohumeral joint 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. There will also be a discussion regarding what is and is not substantiated by research in common clinical practice.

- Progression of rehabilitation,
- Realistic clinical outcomes and time frames, and
- Problem pathologies (partial rotator cuff tears, thoracic outlet syndrome, hypermobile patients and complex impingement syndromes).
Substantial time is also committed to scapula mechanics assessment and rehabilitation strategies.
