Shoulder and Elbow injuries and Rehabilitation in Overhead Athletes

This course is a comprehensive look into shoulder and elbow injuries in throwing/overhead athletes including tennis, baseball, cricket and volleyball.  In the course, we will cover in detail all the theoretical underpinnings of functional anatomy, biomechanics and pathology and then link this to the practical outcomes of rehabilitating elite athletes.  Uniquely, the course is run in a full gymnasium setting so there will be a big emphasis on seeing a vast array of rehabilitation drills, and putting into practise what is learnt.  As well, the course will cover real case studies of the rehabilitation of professional athletes.  The course is run by a leading Sports Physiotherapist who has worked around the world including the London Olympics and regularly still consults with players from the ATP world tennis tour and Tennis Australia.  By the end of the course, you will achieve a deep understanding of how and why the structures around the shoulder and elbow break down and how you can go about restoring full function.
