Exercise demonstrates the greatest clinical effect of any physical therapy intervention across a wide array of Orthopaedics Sectionpedic conditions, particularly for shoulder pain. Combined with inconsistent evidence for manual therapy techniques, such as joint manipulation, instrumented soft tissue mobilization, or dry needling, clinicians are faced with a challenge for integrating these approaches into their treatment strategies. This session provides a foundational understanding of the principles of exercise prescription, dosing, and progression for patients with shoulder conditions in the sports rehabilitation setting. The speakers present clinical recommendations for consideration and integration of manual therapies to augment and facilitate exercise efficacy. Case studies are used to apply these principles of exercise dosing and progression, and integration of traditional and emerging manual therapies are explored.

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

1. Explain key principles of therapeutic exercise dosing and progression in the athletic shoulder.

2. Identify indications for selection of manual therapies for patients with shoulder pain.

3. Describe challenges and potential solutions to successful integration of manual therapies to facilitate optimal treatment effectiveness and efficacy.
