Session Type: Educational Sessions
Session Level: Intermediate

This session combines CSM platforms with an interactive educational session to foster translation of the latest evidence into clinical practice. The Research Committee of the Orthopaedics Section will select abstracts among those submitted for CSM 2019 related to the evaluation and treatment of rotator cuff and subacromial pain-related movement disorders. After an introduction, each selected abstract will be presented in a 10-minute platform session immediately followed by a 20-minute educational session focused on translation of the information into practice, teaching, or future research. Each presentation will engage the audience in discussion and debate on controversial areas and research that impact the treatment of patients with rotator cuff disorders. The 3 focused topics of this session can cover the spectrum of examination, rehabilitation, and treatment outcomes of subacromial pain pathologies, which may include areas such as rotator cuff tendinopathy, subacromial pain or impingement, tears, surgery, and postoperative management, depending on the research submitted to the section.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Identify the spectrum of disorders that can contribute to subacromial-related pain and pathomechanics of the rotator cuff.

2. Discuss recent studies and other mounting evidence in light of the outdated impingement mechanism.

3. Apply evidence from research on the topic of examination and intervention to the movement-related disorders associated with rotator cuff dysfunction or subacromial pain.

4. Discuss the clinical implications for the results of the research presented on rotator cuff and subacromial pain related disorders.
