Event Description

If you push your wheelchair, transfer yourself, or use a walker or crutches, you know that your shoulders do more than their fair share. Are you struggling with your shoulder health or concerned about keeping your shoulders healthy for the long term? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by conflicting or confusing advise? Clinicians and therapists, are you seeking new ways to provide optimal care?

Julie Grant, OTR/L, and Jill McVey, DPT, ATC will share their clinical and personal experience and dissect the research literature to help you more effectively care for your shoulders (or the shoulders of your patients). Whether you need to know if that pinch in the shoulder will go away if you ignore it, or if you need to overhaul your entire strength program, Julie and Jill have you covered. Let the revolution (in shoulder care) begin!

Continuing Education Credits will be available for physical and occupational therapists. 1.5 contact hours. Certificats will be provided.

5:30-6:30 Meet & Greet: Meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Cafe) to socialize and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the forum. No RSVP required, just show up!
