Please wear closed-in shoes – we will supply aprons and gloves for the anatomy workshop. Please also wear comfortable clothing to enable participation in practical session at the School of Physiotherapy
The purpose of this two-day update course is to:
- Examine the clinically relevant anatomy of the cervical spine, brachial plexus and shoulder, using a variety of resources including prosections, plastinated specimens/slices, bones and models
- Discuss current perspectives of rehabilitation of upper quartile injuries, with a focus on the shoulder girdle.
- Revise manual therapy assessment and treatment techniques for the cervical spine and shoulder?
At the completion of this course you should be able to:
– Revise the clinically relevant bony features, joints, soft tissue components, muscles and vasculature of the cervical spine and shoulder, and discuss how morphology influences function
– Revise the morphology and course of the major branches of the brachial plexus and understand the primary anatomical sites and clinical implications of nerve compression in the upper limb
– Integrate neuroscience and biomechanical perspectives into rehabilitation of shoulder injuries
– To attempt to determine treatment options based on our objective clinical findings.
