Physiotherapy Workshop Series I – IV
If you are enquiring about undergraduate or post graduate guest lecturing on any shoulder, neck or upper back disorder please click here.
Cameron Bennett will be lead instructor for the Physiotherapy Workshop Series. With many years of clinical work, researching and refining his knowledge in shoulder disorders he can offer insightful and practical advice on treating the problematic shoulder. Cameron has combined the experience of many shoulder experts in the fields of physiotherapy, sports medicine, neurology, radiology and orthopedic surgery for these courses.
The workshops offer clinicians a structured approach to building their diagnostic knowledge along with a comprehensive set of treatment skills. They are intended to be very practical and advance the knowledge of all clinicians – from new graduates to senior post graduate clinicians. Differential diagnosis, examination skills and effective treatment methods are taught for each shoulder disorder. Current teachings in clinical anatomy, biomechanics and pathology will be reviewed for each problem. Key rehabilitation methods will be taught through lectures, demonstration and case studies. We will also examine several rehabilitation plans and post surgical protocols during the workshops.
Each course is designed to offer a comprehensive review of particular disorders by building stronger diagnostic skills, increasing your treatment choices and improving patient management skills. Levels I – II cover a wide range of glenohumeral and shoulder girdle disorders at advanced levels. Level III involves better problem solving in the examination and treatment phases, accelerated rehabilitation programs and treating chronic shoulder problems. Level IV involves treatment of complex shoulder problems including neurovascular disorders, streamlining your treatment plans and offering expert treatment in your practice.
Level I course is for physiotherapists with general experience in treating shoulder disorders. This is a very practical course for refining your examination skills, selecting suitable treatments for early improvement and avoiding common mistakes. This course will update you on key physiotherapy topics for shoulder disorders with a focus on soft tissue disorders of the glenohumeral joint.
