Webinar recording: Managing shoulder injuries and rethinking our approach

Dr Angus Forbes

This webinar looks at common shoulder conditions and explains why current diagnostic investigations and surgical procedures don't always have the benefits we'd expect.
About the webinar

Shoulder pain is a common presenting condition. Work related diagnoses are common and associated with significant work restrictions and surgical referral. The diagnostic value of physical examination and ultrasound investigation, as well as the benefits of common surgical procedures are surprisingly poor. Is it time we rethought our approach to managing patients?
