Shoulder assessment and treatment:

Clinical tips and tricks Dr Margie Olds

Satuday March 18 and Sunday March 19, 2023 AUCKLAND


This course is perfect for physiotherapists who want to advance their skills in the area of assessment and treatment of common shoulder presentations. This is a Level 1 course, and is designed for recent graduates who want to better understand shoulder presentations, as well as more experienced clinicians who want to review their skills. This course presents the  assessment, diagnosis and treatment of common shoulder conditions and is an excellent pre-cursor to the one-day hybrid and online Level 2 courses.

There will be a brief review of clinical tests, but the assessment aspect of the course will mainly focus on the clinical utility of assessment techniques (i.e. when and why to use specific assessment tools)

Topics covered include:

  • How to undertake a comprehensive and time-sensitive shoulder assessment
  • Assessment techniques – when, why and which technique to use
  • Traumatic shoulder instability
  • Rotator Cuff pathology and treatment
  • Scapula dyskinesis: What is it and what to do about it?
  • Labral pathology: how to detect it, and what to do when you think there is a labral problem.

This course will be over 2 days (Saturday March 18, and Sunday March 19) and will use a case-based approach to illustrate examples of both assessment and treatment. Practical examples of assessment and treatment techniques will be incorporated to ensure clinicians have new skills they can use when they return to the clinic.

It is an excellent pre-cursor to  some of the more specific online courses. This course will cover the assessment and treatment of common shoulder presentations
