Rotator cuff tear arthropathy (RCTA) is a pattern of glenohumeral joint degenerative changes following rotator cuff tears, causing shoulder pain and stiffness. Subscapularis tears can also be involved in RCTA, or a significant cause of shoulder pain and disability.

How can you identify RCTA and subscap tears in your shoulder pain patients? How can they be treated, and do these patients respond well to non-surgical management?

Find out in this podcast with Jo Gibson (Upper Limb Rehabilitation Specialist Physio).

The handout for this podcast consists of a transcript and research articles referenced in this podcast.

When a patient presents with a potential frozen shoulder, what other differential diagnoses must be considered? Find out in this podcast with Jo Gibson (Upper Limb Rehabilitation Specialist Physio), exploring the case study of a patient diagnosed with “frozen shoulder” with symptoms that don’t quite match a typical frozen shoulder. What’s the diagnosis of this patient’s stiff shoulder?

You’ll also discover whether an X-ray or imaging is required when a patient presents with a stiff or frozen shoulder.

Stingers or burners are a burning or stinging pain, often with some paraesthesia and occasionally weakness, often occurring in impact sports such as rugby or American football.

When your patients present with neck and arm symptoms, how can you differentiate a stinger or burner from a C/sp fracture, discogenic symptoms or nerve root compression, which all require very different treatment?

How should you manage patients with one-off or repeated stingers or burners?

Posterior shoulder instability can occur after a fall onto an outstretched arm, or diving and hitting the ground with your arm (like diving to score a try in rugby), injuring the posterior labrum and/or the glenohumeral joint. Unlike anterior shoulder instability, patients with posterior shoulder instability may not have a feeling of instability, but may just experience pain, fatigue and weakness.

How can you identify posterior shoulder instability in your shoulder pain patients? What does your rehab for posterior shoulder instability need to include?
