November 9-10, 2024: Upper Quarter Peripheral Nerve Sensitization: The "Missing Link" in the Treatment of Ortho, Sports and Industrial Medicine Patients Registration will open June 7, 2024

Presented by Jack M. Stagge PT, OCS, FAAOMPT, this 2- day lab course will present concepts of differential diagnosis and treatment of patients with upper quadrant pain and loss of function pioneered by Bob Elvey PT, GDMT. Participants will learn to integrate the six sensitive and specific evaluation for these pathologies into their standard evaluations and specific treatment protocols will be demonstrated and practiced. Recent research demonstrates that often misdiagnosed maladies of the upper quadrant including shoulder impingements, “chronic tendonitis”, adhesive capsulitis, failed whiplash syndromes etc. are caused by peripheral nerve sensitization. Well documented neurogenic causation will be presented. Real patient examinations, videos, case presentation, and lab practicals will allow for application into the participant’s daily practice.
