This case study on Elbow pain walks us through the assessment dynamics of local elbow dysfunction and how the soft tissues of the upper extremity above the elbow predispose to the overall condition. Stuart demonstrates treatment protocols based on clinical reasoning from the physical assessment which results in resolution of the condition. If you thirst for advanced clinical reasoning in your assessment and treatment these case study videos are unlike any educational series, taking you into the treatment room and picking apart the assessment and treatment rationale (1 hour video).
This patient information leaflet covers exercises and advice for rheumatoid arthritis. The leaflet includes a short overview, along with specific strengthening and stretching exercises and repetition guidelines (which can be changed by practitioners where appropriate).
Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a common injury that is notoriously difficult to rehabilitate. This article provides a practical and progressive model for athletes to manage the condition and rehabilitate back to full function. This... Read More
Subacromial impingement (SAI) and rotator cuff (RTC) tears are a common cause of pain and disability of the shoulder and may be both traumatic and non-traumatic in origin. It has been reported that 20–30% of... Read More
As we are learning more about the complexity of pain, we are beginning to better understand that the degree of injury does not always relate to the degree of pain. The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) defines pain as ‘an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage’. This definition highlights the variability of a painful experience and indicates pain may be a result of actual or potential tissue damage. A recent article published in the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery sought out to determine if pain levels are related to the severity of rotator cuff pathology (1).
Impingement accounts for up to 65% of all shoulder pain, and yet studies have been unable to determine the precise structure which is at fault. This article uses an evidence-based approach to guide clinical practice by looking at anatomy, pathology and function of the shoulder region. By understanding how to optimise shoulder function, treatment of several body regions can be combined to address impingement problems. A number of hands-on manual therapy techniques are described for the initial management of shoulder impingement problems.

Rehabilitation is used to target compensatory movements and re-establish optimal shoulder function, and the practitioner is guided through a rehab programme which can be applied to patients immediately.
