Shoulder Disorders: Rehab Strategies & Interventions for Successful Treatment of the Shoulder Complex

Benefits of Attending

• Innovative HANDS-ON techniques to improve mobility of the scapulashoulder complex
• The Latest Evidence-Based Special Tests to for SLAP tears, microinstability, posterior impingement and RC pathology
• Post-Surgical Protocol discussion and implementation
• Combining proper exercise prescription with effective manual therapy techniques

Description

One of the most daunting tasks facing rehab professionals is the in-depth understanding of the shoulder complex and how the intricate anatomy and biomechanics play into the post-surgical and non-surgical rehab process. With the country's aging population, there continues to be a significant rise in patients requiring care for various shoulder pathologies ranging from tendonitis to total shoulder replacements. Understanding anatomy, biomechanics and  Mechanisms of injury is critical to the success of the clinician interpreting special test data correctly and ultimately performing appropriate treatment to the individual.

This integral 1-day seminar will involve anatomical, kinesiological and functional considerations of the shoulder complex along with the vast importance of proximal scapular stabilization forces relating to the rotator cuff. A strong emphasis on mechanism of injury, presentation and hands-on clinical testing will tie in directly with an in-depth discussion on anatomy, physiology and surgical interventions for Rotator Cuff Disorders, Labral Pathology, Gleno-Humeral Instability and Total Shoulder Replacements. Clinicians will leave this seminar with the appropriate tools and current rehabilitation interventions and timelines for the shoulder complex ranging from acute to sub-acute and post-subacute.

Objectives

1. Examine the role of scapular force couples in scapulo-humeral rhythm required for normal shoulder movement.
2. Describe the role of the rotator cuff muscles in reducing shear forces and stabilizing the head of the Humerus in the glenoid fossa during normal movement.
3. Describe the various mechanisms of shoulder injury both insidious and acute with the structures compromised.
4. Examine clinical procedures (tests) for targeting compromised shoulder structures.
5. Examine the relationship of surgical procedures for the rotator cuff, labral tears, anterior gleno-humeral instability, total shoulder and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty to the rehabilitative process.
6. Develop and implement conservative physical therapy interventions, progression, and rationale in management of common shoulder impairments.

Terry Rzepkowski, PT, DPT, MS, BS

Dr. Terry L Rzepkowski, DPT, MS, BS, is a Doctor of Physical Therapy with specialization in Orthopedic Homecare Physical Therapy. Throughout his 35-year career, he has specialized in Orthopedics, specifically: Musculoskeletal out-patient rehab as an independent private practitioner, Total Joint Replacement Surgery, and Sports Medicine. This extensive background allows him to relate his knowledge of the shoulder complex patient from prevention strategies including rehabilitative exercises, lifestyle and activity modifications through all phases of post-op rehabilitation.

A professor in the Health Science department for Nova Southeastern University Terry provides instruction in Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Kinesiology; Terry has extensive knowledge in relating the complexities of the shoulder patient. Terry’s current clinical role as home care therapist working exclusively with orthopedic surgical patients in Tampa FL, provides a platform for staying abreast of the latest techniques and protocols utilized in joint care rehab. As a sought-after presenter, he enjoys sharing his knowledge with interdisciplinary audiences around the country. Terry has spoken professionally on shoulder, knee, and hip injuries with advances in arthroscopic repair.
