The Rotator Cuff Online Course

In this comprehensive online program, designed for musculoskeletal health professionals, we take a deep dive into:

  • The epidemiology and aetiology of rotator cuff pathology, subacromial impingement and why it’s being heavily challenged

  • Pain and it’s relationship to shoulder patho-anatomy

  • Predictors of clinical outcomes 

  • The utility of radiological imaging 

  • The principles underpinning a thorough and appropriate subjective and physical examination of the shoulder

  • What is the evidence for physiotherapy and why does it work?

  • Exercise options to prescribe to your patients with rotator cuff pain

  • Injection therapy for rotator cuff pain – the hard facts

The end result?

This course will equip you with an in-depth understanding of all things rotator cuff, a firm grasp of the scientific literature behind who gets rotator cuff pathology and what factors influence recovery or not.

You will know accepted terms to use for diagnosis and the role of imaging in clinical decision making.

You will understand the relevant research supporting physical therapy as the primary intervention for rotator cuff pain.

Most importantly, you’ll have actionable strategies for assessment and treatment to use immediately in clinic when treating rotator cuff pain to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.

 

Physical therapists are poised to become the leading force in the management of shoulder pain, and the knowledge you accrue with this course will equip you for this leading role

Strengthen your knowledge of managing shoulder pain with leading shoulder pain educator and physiotherapist, Jared Powell

Jared is an experienced musculoskeletal physiotherapist from the Gold Coast, Australia.
He has a special interest in the shoulder joint and is enrolled in a PhD in this area at Bond University.  
Jared strongly leans on scientific evidence in his clinical practice and research, leading to many early mornings and late nights geeking out on the latest research!
Jared teaches his shoulder workshops both in Australia and overseas to much acclaim. He also maintains a teaching role at Bond University where he teaches the shoulder to budding physiotherapy students.
Jared believes in the inherent adaptability and strength of human beings and this is strongly backed up by the scientific literature.
As such, therapeutic exercise and education are the pillars upon which Jared approaches management of shoulder pain.
