NeuroPro Skills™ for

Shoulder Function

Quality Continuing Education for Neurorehabilitation Professionals


The shoulder complex is crucial to reach, as well as to the manipulation of objects which we constantly reach for, hold, and use throughout the day. Think of how much frustration you would experience without the amazing function of your arm. However, there is a prevailing myth in neurorehabilitation: “the arm recovers last”. Could it be that this presumption delays attention to the arm? In this course, we will derail the “arm last” myth and question the clinical exercises associated with it. We will teach you “arm first” strategies to engage the arm in meaningful activities, now.

Ideal for:

  • Physical Therapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physical Therapy Assistants
  • Occupational Therapy Assistants

Upon Completion
