Toms River Campus – Sat., Oct. 28 & Sun., Oct. 29, 2023 • 9:00am-5:00pm
W. New York Campus – TBD
Presented by Dr. Ben E. Benjamin
This comprehensive workshop will teach you how to effectively assess and treat the most commonly injured structures in the shoulder. You’ll learn how to differentiate muscle, tendon, bursa, joint, and ligament injuries, and you’ll fine-tune your palpation skills and hands-on treatment techniques. The two-day format provides ample time to develop all the skills you need to address a wide range of pain problems.
An integrative approach
There are six major components to the training:
- Anatomy: View and palpate the relevant musculoskeletal structures.
- Assessment: Practice musculoskeletal assessment tests and anatomy palpation
- Theory: Learn how to use the history, positive assessment test findings, and results of palpation to determine which structures are injured. We’ll discuss the possible causes of injury as well as effective treatments.
- Integration: Integrate what you’ve learned about the theory and assessment procedures through hands-on learning games and supervised mock clinics.
- Technique: Discuss, practice, and review detailed treatment techniques to eliminate adhesive scar tissue.
• Clinic: On the second day of the training, practice your skills in an injury assessment clinic, free and open to the public, under Dr. Benjamin’s supervision.
