Shoulder Pain : Putting Evidence into practice
Dr Karen McCreesh Phd, MSc, BSc, PgDip MSK
Course Aim: Effectively assessing and managing people with shoulder pain in
Physiotherapy practice requires understanding of the relevant anatomy that underpins
shoulder function. It also requires skills in designing goal-oriented, and evidence-based
exercise programmes, and understanding how to engage people in exercise in a
meaningful and effective way. The evidence for the management of shoulder disorders
has increased exponentially in recent years. The transfer of this knowledge into practice
places physiotherapy as the primary intervention for most shoulder conditions. This
course aims to equip physiotherapists with the knowledge and reasoning to deliver
effective management for people with a range of shoulder conditions (rotator cuff
tendinopathy, shoulder fractures and stiff/frozen shoulder).
