Course Description

Motion palpation is a diagnostic technique used by the doctor of chiropractic to locate joint dysfunction within the spinal column and extremities. This technique quickly gained acceptance as a standard diagnostic tool for the chiropractic profession. The Motion Palpation Institute has set the standard for functional manual care. MPI continues to raise the bar for the modern chiropractor by infusing it’s classes with manual therapy techniques and assessment tools that are proven clinically effective. Motion palpation is now taught in chiropractic colleges throughout the world.

Shoulder disorders tend to be one of the most clinically frustrating cases a DC sees. Why? The shoulder inherently lacks bony stability, so relies on the muscle, ligament, and connective tissue for its stability and function, making it difficult to treat. The Shoulder Masters Series class looks at the shoulder girdle and its relationship to the spine and upper quadrant. The goal of this course is to give the clinician an integrated understanding of the shoulder girdle and how to functionally assess and treat conditions of this complex area in a way that is easy to employ Monday morning in your clinic.

Topics that will be covered in this course include:

  • Biomechanics of the shoulder girdle.
  • Functional assessment (movement screens) of the shoulder girdle.
  • Clinically useful orthopedic tests for the shoulder girdle.
  • Imaging options for the shoulder and cervical spine.
  • Palpation of the shoulder girdle and cervical spine.
  • Adjustment techniques for the shoulder girdle and cervical spine.
  • Functional rehabilitation of the shoulder.
