In this comprehensive online program, designed for musculoskeletal health professionals, we take a deep dive into:
- The epidemiology and aetiology of rotator cuff pathology, subacromial impingement and why it’s being heavily challenged
- Pain and it’s relationship to shoulder patho-anatomy
- Predictors of clinical outcomes
- The utility of radiological imaging

The Rotator Cuff Part 1:
In this comprehensive online course, designed for musculoskeletal health professionals, we take a deep dive into the epidemiology and aetiology of rotator cuff pathology, subacromial impingement and why it’s being heavily challenged, pain and it’s relationship to shoulder patho-anatomy, predictors of clinical outcomes, and the utility of radiological imaging.
The Rotator Cuff Part 2:
In this follow up course to Part 1, we focus on putting theory into practice and teach you how to conduct a thorough and appropriate subjective and physical examination of the shoulder, and to develop an effective treatment plan for patients with rotator cuff pain.
