This workshop is devised in 2 parts and has been designed for exercise physiologists, exercise scientists and physiotherapists seeking more understanding about exercise for the upper quadrant. 

The first will cover shoulder anatomy, biomechanics and motor control. This will include considerations for exercise to ensure minimal risk of injury, and how to progress exercises safely. Both practical and theoretical components will be included. The second part of this workshop will cover pathology, pathophysiology of common shoulder injuries and considerations for this in exercise program design. 

This workshop will be a combination of both theory and practical exercise skills.

The exercise focus for this workshop will be on restoration of mobility and stability of the shoulder. This will include progressive low grade activities to assist in improving motor control and to commence strengthening to return the individual to normal functional activities.

Exercises integrating stretching activities, light loading, theraband and light resistive training will be integrated into the days teaching. 

Case based applications will be utilised through the day a range of conditions including rotator cuff strains, shoulder instabilities, AC joint injuries and impingement type syndromes.
