Movement control at the shoulder

Title: Movement Control at the Shoulder – A collaborative approach to optimising shoulder rehabilitation.


Target Audience: Musculoskeletal physiotherapists and neurological physiotherapists managing more complex shoulder problems.

MNC are very excited to be holding this course. One of the first to be held in the UK taught by leaders in the field of musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapy. It will provide a unique opportunity for musculoskeletal and neurological physiotherapists to collaborate and learn from one another.


Course Tutors:


Consultant Physiotherapist, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Trust (RNOHT) (UK)

Deputy Director AHP Research & development

A Jaggi Physio Consultancy Ltd

Past President of European Society of Shoulder and Elbow Rehabilitation (EUSSER)

Anju has worked at the RNOHT for over 20 years, 18 years of which has been in clinical

rehabilitation in managing complex shoulder dysfunction with a specific interest in atraumatic

shoulder instability.



Clinical Lead Physiotherapist in Neurological Rehabilitation, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (UK), Private Practitioner: Indigo Rehab Physiotherapy Practice.

Advanced IBITA Bobath tutor, current Chair of British Bobath Tutors Association.

 Sue has a particular interest in upper limb rehabilitation and has seen the development of our understanding of sensorimotor control, both clinically and in the literature, such that many of the principles underpinning movement control viewed from the perspective of the Bobath Concept are equally relevant in other clinical contexts, and vice versa.


 Course Outline:

It is widely acknowledged that pain is complex and multi-factorial and that several systems influence cause and effect. An appreciation of tissue disease, dynamic muscular control and neurological pathways must be considered when managing patients with painful, dysfunctional shoulders.

Presentation of symptoms can be similar in both musculoskeletal as well as neurological patients although the underlying aetiology may be different. The objective of this course is to bring the expertise of clinicians from both orthopaedic and neurological fields to better optimise patient outcomes with the use of clinical patient cases.


Learning Objectives:

  • Review of the anatomical structures in the shoulder girdle
  • An update on the current understanding of neural control in postural control and normal patterns of movement
  • Improving movement control: psychosocial, sensory input, goal and context
  • Improving postural stability to optimise shoulder function
  • Incorporating the kinetic chain and how the hand can access the shoulder….exploring movement in a truly functional context
  • How to influence sequence, timing and specificity to optimise shoulder function
  • Psychosocial influences on pain
  • Understanding the effects of age related changes and common conditions in the shoulder
  • Update on the current guidance for musculoskeletal shoulder dysfunction 


Course Structure:

  • Two lectures, one with a musculoskeletal focus, the other a neurological focus.
  • Two patient workshops.


Course Duration: 1.5 days

Price: £190, includes lunch on the Saturday.
