Neuromuscular Rehabilitation of the Shoulder


Join Dr Angela Cadogan and Dr Jacqui Clark (Specialist Physiotherapists) and learn how to assess and rehabilitate sensorimotor and neuromuscular deficits of the shoulder that can contribute to persistent pain and instability. Learn how to assess and rehabilitate sensory perception and discrimination, neurodevelopmental factors, nociplastic pain, psychosocial and other factors that influence neuromuscular function.

This is a blended learning course (online learning and practical course) that will give you knowledge and skills to assess and interpret sensorimotor and neuromuscular control deficits around the shoulder and give you the skills to design rehabilitation programmes that target specific impairments.

Online learning modules (approx. 2 hours):

o What is 'neuromuscular' control and why is it important?

o The complex shoulder

o Shoulder anatomy

o Glenohumeral and scapula function

o Nociplastic pain

o Sensorimotor control of the shoulder.

o Factors that influence sensorimotor processing including nociplastic pain, psychosocial and neurodevelopmental factors.

2-day practical course includes hands-on practical skills and clinical reasoning to make you proficient in the assessment and rehabilitation of:

o Neuromuscular function of the shoulder

o Sensorimotor function

o Nociplastic pain

o Psychosocial factors

o Neurodevelopmental factors

o Rehabilitation case studies
