EM248: VERBANIA - The Shoulder: musculoskeletal dysfunctions management. An analysis, physical activity and evidence based approach.

In his daily clinical work, the physiotherapist is confronted with an enormous variability of clinical cases presenting with dysfunctions and/or pain in the shoulder and its associated anatomical regions.

Frequently, the diagnostic and morphological description or the use of the traditional "inflammatory" model is not necessarily helpful, since the vast majority of the problems described in the instrumental diagnosis tend to be present on a large scale even in asymptomatic subjects. 

How, then, can we deal with the problem, which is often multifactorial and multidimensional, as is the very nature of the human being? The course content will answer your questions and present an approach based on the screening of potential components involved in the various problems that arise in the clinic in a didactic manner and supported by the latest scientific research evidence focusing on an in-depth analysis of the most common dysfunctions and the planning of the rehabilitation pathway through active exercise and goal setting.
