About The Webinar

Shoulder pain is a very common problem with 40 to 50% of people not reporting recovery six to 12 months after onset. Clearly, based on this information, non-response to treatment is also common. Disorders of the rotator cuff are widely thought to be the most common cause of shoulder pain and so this webinar will focus on rotator cuff tendinopathy and the treatment options available if patients do not respond to physiotherapy. These options include corticosteroid injection and surgery and the evidence around these interventions will be discussed before consideration is given to what causes the pain of tendinopathy and why might, or might not, our treatments work. The webinar will conclude by considering these reasons before offering guidance about maximising the effectiveness of physiotherapy for people with rotator cuff tendinopathy.
