    Releasing the Frozen Shoulder

     

    Shoulder pain is prevalent in between 2.4% and 26% of the population, resulting in significant financial burden, pain and loss of quality of life. According to the APTA’s Clinical Practice Guidelines, mobilization and exercise are important components of shoulder pain management. Too often clinicians are ready to perform joint manipu-lation/mobilization with disregard for the soft tissue component of the stiff shoulder. Myofascial restrictions may limit shoulder mobility and function and must be addressed as part of a plan of care. When fascia becomes scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, its tension adversely impacts functional mobility and physical activity. Manual therapy may include myofascial work to release tension and pain and restore mobility and function. Identify fascial restrictions using motion testing and palpation. Apply specific manual and movement interventions to address mobility deficits, improve circulation, and decrease pain in people presenting with shoulder pain and mobility deficits to achieve improved functional outcomes.

    Assistive Technology (AT) is a universal part of life and can be essential in the lives of adults with disabilities as they function at home, in the community and at work.  Keeping up to date with emerging innovations in AT for people with disabilities can be challenging for OT providers. Kathy Adams, Maine CITE Program Director, will discuss AT as part of OT assessment, share resources and AT funding options. We will explore the many types of AT including “everyday” technologies that can impact the functional skills, independence, safety and productivity of adults who have disabilities.
