Building a Bulletproof Shoulder & Neck Rehab Program Into Your Practice
Recorded On: 10/17/2019
Join Dr. Daniel Bockmann for a course which provides detailed instruction on how to introduce a simple, effective, evidence-informed shoulder and neck rehab program into any doctor's practice, with little to no equipment needed. This rehab protocol is easily adaptable for all patients with shoulder or neck conditions, irrespective of age, activity level or general health status. Because the treatment rationale is straight-forward, and patients see results quickly, patient compliance is high. Dr. Bockmann will begin with a brief discussion of the primary causes of mechanical problems in the neck and shoulder complex, how they arise, and how they are best assessed. The course defines simple treatment tactics, employing the 5 most effective clinical tools for shoulder and neck conditions: spinal manipulation, stretches, massage/myofascial release, exercise and lifestyle modification. He will discuss how both technique problems (whether in life or sport), and systemic problems (disease, deficiency, dehydration, lack of sleep, etc.) can overlay a mechanical problem, and slow healing or prevent recovery. Dr. Bockmann will cover each step of the rehab protocol, including exercise progressions, stretching guidelines, massage/MFR duration & frequency, sleep/workstation/driving posture cues, and lifestyle contributors. The course also enables the provider to craft a return-to-work/return-to-play schedule for the patient, that achieves a quick resumption of activity with minimal risk of re-injury. Finally, Dr. Bockmann will outline key prevention and maintenance strategies that help prevent recurrences of neck or shoulder injuries, once the patient is released from care.
