The course is open for all practitioners looking to deepen their knowledge in injury mechanisms and management of shoulder injuries as well as performance enhancement with focus on overhead athletes.
- Understand throwing mechanics and throwing related injuries
- Understand the latest research relating to the mechanisms and aetiology of shoulder injuries and throwing performance how this applies to clinical management
- Demonstrate accurate and objective diagnosis and assessment of shoulder injuries seen in overhead athletes (including differential diagnosis and assessment of flexibility, strength, biomechanics and power etc.)
- Set up rehabilitation strategies for shoulder injuries and return to play criteria/tests for overhead athletes
- Understand how to monitor sport specific workload in overhead athletes and how to implementing this in the clinical setting
- Understand how to build training programmes that increase both performance and reduce risk of shoulder injuries
