Evidence to support the efficacy of specific exercises for different categories of shoulder dysfunction is limited leaving clinicians with the dilemma of how to choose effective, efficient exercises for their patients with shoulder pain.
Karen Ginn will explore a rationale, evidence-based approach to determining patient-specific therapeutic shoulder exercises. The validity and reliability of clinical evidence gained from the patient’s diagnosis, radiographic and physical examination findings will be explored to evaluate their role in informing therapeutic exercise selection. Recent evidence on the function of shoulder muscles, particularly the stabiliser function of the rotator cuff and axioscapular muscles, will also be presented.
