ANN COOLS LEVEL 2
SHOULDER REHABILITATION: WHAT’S NEW FROM A SCIENTIFIC AND CLINICAL POINT OF VIEW?
Level 2 Live in Copenhagen
We have invited Ann Cools to Copenhagen in March 2021 in the hope that we will have the opportunity again to hold live courses “in vivo” as it has been before Covid 19 hit the world.
If it is not possible to hold the course, all course participants will be contacted and given the opportunity to complete the course online instead or have their course fee returned.
You can participate in the level 2 course without having been to the level 1 course.
Program with approximate time table:
DAY 1: EXAMINATION AND REHABILITATION OF SCAPULAR DYSKINESIS
9-10.30h: ADVANCED BIOMECHANICS OF THE SCAPULA:
Coupled movements, the role of the SC joint, function of the “postural” muscles versus the “dynamic movers and stabilizers”, update literature of scapular dyskinesis in relation to shoulder pathology
11-12.30h: ADVANCED CLINICAL EXAMINATION
Observation of scapular dysfunction, objective measurements of scapular inclination and strength, normative data for scapular flexibility and strength variables, decision making based on the “symptom improvement test-model”, and on the different types of scapular dyskinesis
13.30-15h: ADVANCED SCAPULAR REHABILITATION
Treatment skills based on the 3 types of scapular dyskinesis, taping techniques to correct scapular position, taping for hypertone upper trapezius, infraspinatus, stretching and soft tissue techniques for pect minor
DAY 2: CAPITA SELECTA: ADVANCED INSIGHTS AND PRACTICAL SKILLS IN SELECTED SHOULDER PATHOLOGIES (1/2 day sportspecific, 1/2 day non-sportspecific)
9-10.30h: SLAP LESIONS AND BICEPS RELATED PATHOLOGY
Science based rehabilitation protocol and guidelines for postoperative rehabilitation (exercise progression, excentric training, plyometric drills)
11-12.30: HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING IN THE OVERHEAD ATHLETE AND RETURN-TO-SPORT DECISIONS
specific high level exercises for gymnasts, collision sports, high impact sports, and science based return to play criteria, including objective measurements of glenohumeral ROM and strength
13.30-15h: MULTIDIRECTIONAL INSTABILITY
Progressive conservative treatment of the patient with atraumatic (unvoluntary and voluntary) multidirectional instability – closed and open chain exercise approach, taping techniques
15.30-17h: ROTATOR CUFF TEARS
Conservative management of partial and full thickness (irreparable) rotator cuff tears and guidelines for postoperative rehabilitation (exercises, taping, return to activity advices
