Physio Edge podcast

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.
