    #2185 Medical Screening Part 3 - Screening for Systemic Disease of the Back & Shoulder

    DESCRIPTION

    6 Contact Hours

    This intermediate level course is designed for healthcare professionals working with clients in all settings.

    Section 1 of this course will review clues suggesting systemic or viscerogenic back pain and take you through each system that can refer pain or symptoms to the back. This will include GI, pulmonary, renal and urologic, gynecologic, and vascular (both peripheral and cardiovascular) causes of neck or back pain.

    Section 2 of this course focuses on clues suggesting systemic or viscerogenic shoulder pain and take you through each system that can refer pain or symptoms to the shoulder. This will include the GI, pulmonary, renal, gynecologic, and vascular causes of shoulder pain. Primary or metastatic cancer as an underlying cause of shoulder pain is included in this course on screening the shoulder. Breast cancer is always a consideration with upper quadrant pain or shoulder dysfunction.

    The instructional focus of this course is on developing advanced clinical reasoning skills related to determining a client’s appropriateness for therapy. The course builds on concepts of evidence-based clinical practice as they are used to identify conditions that might mimic neuromuscular or musculoskeletal dysfunction. In particular, screening for back and shoulder pain is the focus of Part 3 of the series: Medical Screening for the Healthcare Professional.
