THE THORACIC OUTLET: Shoulder Assessments and the Coraco-Pectoral Loop

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Nonspecific pain syndromes of the upper limb present a challenge to the clinician entrusted with the care of these difficult cases. Success depends on a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy of this region. Further, the clinician must be able to apply anatomic knowledge to clinical presentation to derive effective treatment. In part two of this course the anatomy of scapular control and it’s relationship to the coraco-pectoral loop is explored. Assessment techniques specific to this region are reviewed and treatment strategies are presented. Relationships to scapulothoracic movement and posture are also presented. Mobilization techniques are blended with corrective exercise and relevant ergonomic education to present a comprehensive approach to treatment.
