Would you like greater confidence in diagnosing Shoulder (GH) Drivers, Scapula Drivers, and Clavicle Drivers? Do you know the clinical findings that indicate the shoulder is a Secondary Driver versus a Co-Driver to the Neck or Thoracic Rings? Would you like specific, individualized feedback on your skills in this region that will positively enhance your clinical practice right away? Then this workshop is for you!

Skill Enhancement Workshops are one-day courses specially designed to provide support for skill improvement in specific regions of the body in small group settings. The course is designed for Graduates of the 3-part ConnectTherapy Series or ISM Series to enhance hands-on skills.

These workshops are also helpful for Graduates of the ConnectTherapy Series Part 4 and can help participants prepare for application to the LJLI Certification program. 

Workshops are designed to provide specific feedback on your assessment and treatment skills for a specific type of driver in the ISM, ConnectTherapy and Thoracic Ring Approach frameworks. For each workshop, the aims include to:

  • enhance your skills in determining the pattern of non-optimal load transfer (NOLT) for the region in different tasks,
  • enhance your corrections skills of the region so you can more efficiently and confidently rule-in and rule-out that region as a driver during Meaningful Task Analysis (MTA), 
  • enhance your abilities to maintain a correction with 1-hand as you identify the impact of your correction on other regions of the body, and apply these skills into the ConnectTherapy Drivers Diagnostic Chart™
  • practice release techniques to treat Glenohumeral Drivers, and how to adapt release techniques for Co-Drivers between the Thoracic Rings and the Shoulder
  • discuss the key treatment priorities for successful exercise progression through Phase 1 and into Phase 2
  • discuss common connections and influences to be aware of in treatment related to the driver theme for the day 
  • hone your visual skills to “teach your eyes” how to see when regions of the body are increasing or decreasing NOLT
  • update yourself in the newest evolutions of ConnectTherapy and the Thoracic Ring Approach ie: charting conventions, terminology

This workshop day will focus on Glenohumeral Drivers, the Shoulder Girdle and the connections of this region to whole body function & performance and will be led by Certified Mentor, Lindsay Geddes. 

For each workshop, participants will be able to provide a list of their current challenges related to assessment and treatment of the regional driver topic for the workshop. 

Class size is limited to twelve (12) participants – instructor to student ratio is 1:6 to maximize time for individual feedback.
