Fredag 21 –lørdag 22 mars Oslo  2014

 Prof dr Ann Cools, PT, PhD    Dept of Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Ghent University Belgia

 Fredag 21 mars:

Clinical Reasoning in patient examination  

New insights in shoulder pathology (theoretical session) 

  • Impingement
  • Rotator cuff tendinopathy
  • Instability
  • Biceps pathology – SLAP lesions
  • Glenohumeral Internal Rotation deficit as a possible cause of shoulder dysfunction (GIRD)
  • The role of scapular dysfunction in shoulder pain

  Clinical examination: from impingement symptoms to the underlying pathology. (practical session)

 Clinical Reasoning (clinical algorithm )

  • Clinical tests for instability, rotator cuff pathology, biceps pathology, scapular dysfunction, …
  • Diagnostic value of commonly used shoulder tests


Lørdag 22 mars  Clinical Reasoning and practice in shoulder rehabilitation  

(theoretical + practical session)


  • General rehabilitation principles (the role of proprioception, co-contraction, eccentric training, exercise modalities…)
  • Progressive stability training for shoulder instability (anterior (TUBS), multidirectional (AMBRI), functional overload instability (AIOS))
  • Manual mobilisation and stretching techniques for impingement and GIRD
  • Scapular rehabilitation exercises (strength + muscle balance)
