Diagnosis and Treatment of the Movement System Impairment Syndromes:
Upper quarter – Shoulder
This course focuses on the Movement System Impairments (MSI) of the shoulder, as described by Prof. Shirley Sahrmann. The MSI approach provides a framework for assessing and treating musculoskeletal conditions by identifying and addressing underlying movement impairments.

This approach emphasizes the role of everyday activities in contributing to the development of movement impairments and the importance of understanding the intricate interactions between different muscles and joints involved in movement.
Prof. Sahrmann’s work has highlighted the need to move beyond traditional diagnostic labels such as rotator cuff tear or frozen shoulder, and instead focus on identifying the specific impairments that are contributing to a patient’s symptoms. This course will provide an overview of the key MSI concepts related to the shoulder, including muscle imbalances, joint mobility restrictions, and faulty movement patterns.
Through a combination of lectures, case studies, and hands-on sessions, participants will learn how to apply the MSI approach to their clinical practice. This will include practical techniques for assessing shoulder movement and function, as well as strategies for developing targeted treatment plans that address the underlying impairments. By the end of the course, participants will have a deeper understanding of the Movement System Impairments of the shoulder, and be equipped with new tools and techniques to help their patients achieve optimal function and mobility.
