This two-day advanced course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines when treating overhead athletes from youth to adult. With an increase in early sports specialization, this course will highlight the risks and benefits of early sport specialization in pediatrics and how care differs from the skeletally mature adult. Participants will receive the latest research on Tommy John repairs for UCL tears, shoulder labral pathologies and pediatric diagnoses that are seen in the overhead athletes.
This course will focus on the science and art behind performing a comprehensive evaluation and creating a well-rounded, complete plan of care for the overhead athlete. Over 40% of the class covers hands-on techniques with lab session where clinicians are practicing evaluation skills, manual skills and advanced therapeutic exercises and activities that can be utilized the next day in clinics with your athletes. A special focus will be on getting overhead athletes back into the game safely with utilizing video throwing analysis and evidence-based return to play protocols along with how to properly bill for these specialty measures. With the growing changes in the health care coverage, the overall course objective is to equip the participants with the most up to date evidence to improve overhead athletes’ outcomes quicker. A comprehensive course packet will include pictures, references and clinical pearls for quick reference in the clinic.
This course is applicable PT’s, PTA’s, AT’s, and OT’s to optimize their knowledge and skills when treating shoulder injuries. Techniques presented will enable the clinician to be better qualified to provide the best outcomes in a value-based medical system.
I want to help therapists get their patient athletes back to their optimal form as quickly as possible withing the framework of value based healthcare.More Instructor Info
