September 15, 2017
This workshop covers assessment of the shoulder, elbow and wrist as it applies to formulating effective treatment goals for a variety of disorders in the region, such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Adhesive Capsulitis/”frozen shoulder”, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis, “Blackberry thumb”, Shoulder tendinosis, etc. Participants will be shown how to release clavipectoral, deltopectoral, platysmal, sternal, cubital, flexor & extensor superficial fascias before deeper structures are addressed. Scapular mobilization will be shown with specific releases to all muscles involved with upper extremity dysfunction. Clavicle mobilization and abdominal head of pec major release round out the shoulder approaches. Treatment of the elbow and wrist with focus on decompressing the radius & ulna from the humerus, decompressing the Carpal Tunnel, as well as mobilizing the carpals, can improve & prevent many of the above disorders.
