What am I going to learn?

  • Accreditatie - Only for Dutch and Belgium participants

    Registers: Beroepsgerelateerd & algemeen. Kwaliteitshuis: 3 punten; PQK: 6 NE

  • Description

    Classic descriptions of how the aforementioned scapular kinematics occur have been found to be incorrect and this misinformation is taught in various academic programs and professional courses. Function and dysfunction of the scapula must be fully understood by clinicians because approaching scapular dyskinesis with inaccurate knowledge about muscle function and seeing the dysfunction as a pathological entity rather than a physical impairment can misguide treatment protocols and lead to less than optimal rehabilitation outcomes. As such, scapular function, scapular dyskinesis, the role of the scapula in shoulder injury, clinical examination designed to detect the dysfunction at the scapula and shoulder, and ultimately the treatment approach for optimizing scapular-based impairments needs to be clarified for the participants of this session.
