Background

As a physio with an interest in the shoulder, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the world’s leading experts over the years and I have learned much from them. However, I found that there is an overwhelming amount of confusing and conflicting opinions, methods, and research on how to assess, treat and manage shoulder problems and this never sat well with me.

I find that a simple straightforward approach works well with most things in physio and shoulder issues are no different. However, doing things simply can be challenging for physios due to worrying they will appear stupid or incompetent to their patients or peers or get inferior results.

This left me wondering that there must be a way to demonstrate how keeping it simple is both effective and evidenced-based for shoulder conditions, and give physios the confidence to focus on doing the simple things really well.

So I designed my own course that attempts to highlight that although “shoulders are complex, they don’t have to be complicated”

Course Outline

This fast-paced, information-packed course is firmly based on the latest research as well as my own experience and is constantly updated. It demonstrates how our assessments and treatments are surrounded by uncertainty, and how they are not as specific or sensitive as many would like us to think. As distressing as this may sound I show it can be an advantage and allows you to focus on what matters the most, the patient.

This course has been developed over a decade of experience and has taken two years of painstaking work to write, and even lead to three small clinical trials of my own. It won’t promise you quick fixes, miracle treatments, or fancy interventions, but it will give you the confidence that doing the simple things well is both effective and evidence-based. It will also provide you with plenty of practical tips that you can use in the clinic immediately.

Now in its fourth year, these widely acclaimed courses aim to be informative, informal, and fun. Presented in my own unique and occasionally controversial style we explore the myths and misconceptions that surround a lot of physiotherapy and look for a simpler way forward.
