Testimonial from the Lower Quarter Online
I have always wanted to do your courses but with 2 little kiddies and my husband working some weekends it was always difficult to arrange someone to look after them for a whole weekend. I know the online course took away the practical aspect of it but it was incredible to be able to attend and to watch some sessions more than once.
I love being a physio but your course gave me a renewed excitement for my practice.
The Upper Quarter is an integrated physiological system both anatomically & biomechanically.
For this reason, assessment & management of upper quarter pain & dysfunction should respect various co-relationships for best outcomes.
On this course you will learn to:
Understand the biomechanics and clinical anatomy of the glenohumeral, scapulo-thoracic, scapulo-humeral and cervico-thoracic regions in a unique, clinically applicable manner.
Recognise abnormal scapular and glenohumeral positional changes and its effect on the presenting pathology.
Understand & identify the causative factors in various upper quarter syndromes.
Predict risk for future injury of the upper quarter.
Assess the upper quarter in detail. This assessment is unique, providing maximum information with minimum tests. A novel assessment form is provided for immediate use in your treatment rooms.
Use clinical reasoning to identify source of symptoms and the appropriate management.
Learn to reason where you should start with management: with glenohumeral or scapular or cervical dysfunction. Which is the chicken & which is the egg?
Correctly teach your patient selected stabilisation strategies (to improve motor control & control of the neutral) of the craniovertebral, scapula and glenohumeral joints from the initial acute phase (in neutral) to full return to their pre-injury level.
Pre-habilitate injury risk factors to prevent injury, minimise costs and allow the professional athlete to be less hampered by persistent injury.
Correctly employ Myofascial release techniques to connective tissues with restricted extensibility, such as Levator scapulae, Pectoralis minor, Infraspinatus and Teres minor.
Progress rehabilitation in functionally ideal positions for optimal return to the patients’ pre-injury level.
