Description:
Many “red flag” conditions in patients with disorders related to the head, neck, and shoulder are rare enough that physical therapists—both those who specialize in treating these patients and novice clinicians—may not recognize these conditions and could miss prompt medical referral. This session will help clinicians develop clinical pattern recognition skills that will help them detect these conditions. Presenters will explain how to prioritize the urgency of medical/surgical referral of suspected head, neck, and shoulder red flags, based on the acuity and complexity of the condition. Case studies will illustrate how physical therapists in major league baseball, the United States military, and Collegiate Division I athletics successfully identified and managed patients with head, neck, and shoulder disorders who have these red flag conditions.

Objectives: Detect common signs and symptoms related to head, neck, and shoulder red flags. Recognize clinical patterns of risk and contributing factors related to head, neck, and shoulder red flags. Develop clinical pattern recognition skills that will inform hand therapists in head, neck, and shoulder medical screening. Prioritize the urgency of medical/surgical referral of suspected head, neck, and shoulder red flags based on acuity and complexity of condition.
