Welcome to our upcoming webinar on “Differential Diagnosis of the "Neck and Shoulder pain” for Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. As healthcare professionals, we often come across patients suffering from neck and shoulder pain, and it can be challenging to determine the root cause of the pain. This webinar is specifically designed to equip physical and occupational therapists with the necessary skills and tools to perform systemic differential diagnosis for such patients.
The course is a handy, concise, and quick reference guide that will provide therapists with the resources to determine the scope of therapy or the need for referral to appropriate medical providers. By identifying red flags early on, therapists can save time and resources and ensure patients receive the best possible care.
Our informative and to-the-point course will enhance your evaluation skills and assessment techniques, providing you with the confidence to diagnose and treat patients suffering from cervical spine and shoulder pain. This webinar is designed to be practical and relevant to your clinical practice, with resources that can be used the next day.
