Examination and Assessment of Shoulder Problems

James Mally, ND, CMT - Auditorium

The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the body, and it’s also the most susceptible to problems. Formed with four joints, the shoulder girdle is a complex structure. Understanding these joints and the muscles that act on them is essential for effective massage therapy. We’ll focus on postural patterns and the ways they contribute to shoulder dysfunction.

Cadaver Work – A Visual Tour

Slippery Shoulder

Mary Tuchscherer, DC – Room 28

You are frequently called upon to address shoulder pain and dysfunction.  It will be of interest to understand the various neurological diagnoses associated with the shoulder. Treating traumatic, overuse, and repetitive motion injuries is different than dealing with nerve entrapment; these entrapments may involve the sinal nerves or the peripheral nerves.  You will learn to understand the differences and therefore be able to treat the client more appropriately.
