Scapula dyskinesis can be ‘tricky’ to treat and some people have persistent pain or shoulder instability despite extensive treatment. Is sensory perception the forgotten link in rehabilitation? 

Scapula dyskinesis can be a benign, asymptomatic finding in many cases. However, for some people abnormal scapula function is associated with persistent shoulder girdle pain or shoulder instability (or both). Despite attempts at rehabilitation, many experience ongoing symptoms that can be difficult to treat and can be perplexing for the clinician.  

Join Specialist Physiotherapists Dr Jacqui Clark (Pain) and Dr Angela Cadogan (MSK) in this 30 minute, informal discussion and hear how sensory perception may be the forgotten link in scapula rehabilitation and get some tips on how to assess and manage sensorimotor deficits around the scapula.

In this webinar Jacqui and Angela discuss: 

  • Scapula dyskinesis and the association with persistent shoulder pain and instability 
  • Assessment of sensory perception and scapula proprioception  
  • Other factors that influence sensory processing 
  • Tips for how to improve scapula sensory perception and improve movement control 

This short discussion is an introduction to their blended learning (online + 2-day practical) course, “Neuromuscular Rehabilitation of the Shoulder” where Jacqui and Angela will help you learn how  to assess, clinically-reason and rehabilitate specific sensorimotor deficits of the shoulder girdle.
