about the course
See right-hand column for upcoming class and class format information -->
Sometimes a person’s shoulder will experience a worsening cycle of pain, guarding and inflammatory fibrosis. Recovery takes months to years. This means a significant loss of capability and comfort, for people otherwise in the prime of their lives.
Worst of all, these folks often receive terrible treatment, based on junky mechanistic models and procedural blindness.
We can do better. But we need to understand the ecosystem of the glenohumeral joint, and we need to be dynamic in our work. That’s what this class is about: Giving you a hands-on, mindful approach that dramatically improves your ability to help — and not to hurt — people with ‘adhesive capsulitis’ and related conditions.
