The aim of the workshop is to present the current scientific evidence and the clinical model in use for the thorough clinical assessment of Tendinopathies. The lower limb Spring Model will be integrated with a careful analysis of the relevant clinical and performance tests for a complete assessment of the patient’s capacities.
The anatomy of the shoulder and the mechanisms responsible for its specific painful disorders will be revisited. Different sub-groups will be presented together with a critical analysis of the shoulder assessment, including special tests and Symptoms Modification Procedures.
The clinical application of the Hand Held Dynamometer will be integrated for the analysis of the strength ratios and the progression criteria as well as for the achievement of the best exercise plan compliance.
A careful analysis of the whole Kinetic Chain will be presented for different Sports for full recovery as well as for enhanced Performance.
Furthermore the course will provide information regarding the latest clinical trials regarding conservative and surgical interventions as well as the predictive factors for full recovery.
