Australian Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine Conference  

NC Events Pty Ltd

The AAMM Conference is a medical conference targeted at GP’s and those wanting to learn more about musculoskeletal medicine including physiotherapists, MSK and sports medicine doctors.

Details on the 2021 Program can be found at https://conference.aamm.org.au/

Conference highlights involve hands on workshops including the following which may be of particular interest to physiotherapists.

Thoracic Outlet Workshop Summary presented by Mark Comerford.

Neck, shoulder and arm pain can be complex with numerous contributing elements. Frequently clinicians faced with this challenge, assess and treat these areas both individually and do their best to link presenting symptoms to underlying causal factors.

The knowledge that movement impairments are a key component is widely known but the how do you connect things together? is not always so clear.

This lecture / workshop aims to equip you with a global view on the factors that compound this problem and offer clinical and practical insights to allow you new ways to approach this problem and join up the dots.

This presentation will give you a multi layered approach that helps you understand the need to:
1. Identify specific movement impairment tests
2. Integrate movement reconditioning to high-performance function.
3. Know the importance of follow-up for maintenance of optimal movement control strategies to prevent recurrence.
4. Identify the presentation of atypical thoracic outlet syndrome presentations.

In addition he will be discussing the relevance of articular and soft tissues restrictions and the presence of myofascial trigger points in a rehab programme and movement re training.

Build on your strategies for thoracic outlet impairments and more...

Long standing and especially persistent musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders of the upper quadrant nearly always present with a complex combination of neck, shoulder girdle, arm, and upper chest pain.

These presentations of recurrent in chronic neck, shoulder and arm pain are essentially complex but atypical thoracic outlet impairments.

There are 10 neuro-musculoskeletal impairments that significantly contribute to Thoracic Outlet symptoms. Most patients have a variable combination of these identifiable and manageable impairments

The management of this disorder needs to address restrictions to mobilise, uncontrolled movement to stabilise, low and high threshold stabiliser muscle retraining, retrain appropriate phasic neck and shoulder girdle function, neurodynamic myofascial trigger point influences, and high-performance integration.

By attending this lecture / workshop, you will examine the interrelationships of movement impairments in these areas and detail retraining strategies to better manage chronic and recurrent neck, shoulder and arm pain.

Workshops will specifically examine:
•The nature and clinical presentation of this problem.
•The use of movement and performance screening in functionally relevant multi-joint movement analysis of the upper quadrant.
•Specific movement impairment tests to identify uncontrolled movements to prioritise in movement control retraining.
•Identify and mobilise articular and myofascial restrictions that contribute to compensatory movement control disorders.
•Re-establish dynamic control of the movement control impairments using low threshold direction control retraining AND low and high threshold muscle specific retraining and reconditioning of shoulder girdle and neck stabiliser muscles.
•Restoring phasic recruitment of appropriate mobiliser muscles for efficient reconditioning of high load and high-speed function around, shoulder girdle and neck.
•Identify for and treat the influence of myofascial trigger points in neuro facial pain.
•Assess for and manage neurodynamic influences on pain and, movement impairment compensations.
•Discuss the integration of movement reconditioning to high-performance function and more.....
