Arthrokinematics, basic histology and histopathology, indications and contraindications along with an anatomy review are taught in the lecture. Emphasis is placed on treatment of multiple diagnoses of the upper quarter that therapists treat, including rotator cuff tendonitis and bursitis, adhesive capsulitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, Dequervain's syndrome, fibromyalgia, lateral epicondilitis, joint contracture and general tendonitis.
