Shoulder pain and dysfunction account for greater than 14% of all general practice encounters, which is 3rd after back and neck pain among musculoskeletal complaints in the primary care setting. Approximately 50% apparently resolve within 6 months, while about 40% may persist up to 12 months. Pain in the shoulder can have many different causes including the primary joint itself, but more commonly it’s caused by the muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia or boney dysfunction of the full shoulder girdle. This CME will discuss and demonstrate the Osteopathic Evaluation and Treatment of the Shoulder. Learning objectives:
- Review of shoulder girdle anatomy and possible causes of shoulder pain and dysfuntion.

- Educate stretches and other self-healing tools patients can do for themselves to help heal their shoulder dysfunction and pain.
