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 in this area in various settings and have learnt much from them. However, I found that there is an overwhelming amount of confusing and conflicting opinions, methods, and research in how to assess, treat and manage shoulder problems and this never sat well with me.

I always found a simple straight forward approach works well with most things in this job, and shoulder issues are no different. However, this approach worries and frightens many as they think they will get inferior results or appear incompetent or inexperienced to their patients or peers. This left me wondering there must be a way to demonstrate how keeping it simple is both effective and evidenced based. So I designed my own course that demonstrates although shoulders are complex, they don’t have to be complicated.

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 with uncertainty, and how they are not as specific or sensitive as many would like us to think. As distressing as this may sound it can be the exact opposite allow 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 has even lead to three clinical research trials. 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 all that’s needed, as well as lots of practical hints and tips that you can put into practice immediately.

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