WholeHealth Chicago Continuing Professional Education

The Shoulder: Theory and Practice
Dr. Jeremy Lewis
London-based Consultant Physiotherapist and Professor of Musculoskeletal Research
October 6-7, 2018; 13.5 contact hours

WholeHealth Chicago welcomes Jeremy Lewis, London-based physiotherapist, researcher, and international lecturer, to Chicago for his two-day course The Shoulder: Theory and Practice on Saturday and Sunday, October 6 and 7.

The Shoulder: Theory and Practice teaches a functional, patient-focused, and outcomes-based approach to the assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions involving the shoulder region. Taught worldwide in more than 35 countries and informed by decades of clinical, teaching, and research experience, the course is continually updated to integrate the latest research.

In addition to assessment and management of the shoulder region, this course synthesizes the complex relationships between the shoulder and body biomechanics, pain science, lifestyle, patient psychosocial factors, beliefs and expectations, best practice, and more.

It’s also guaranteed to be fun!  Course participants can expect to have an overview of shoulder anatomy, function, and conditions we typically see clinically as well as a thorough discussion of the importance of functional and patient-focused methods for assessment and management.  A practical component of the course will help participants implement what they learn right away.
