In this hour the subjective assessment of the shoulder joint will be discussed.  Working your way through the subjective assessment, whether an acute or chronic presentation will be guided.  Understanding what detail to go into when understanding the acute or chronic history.  Discussing pain – understanding why severity, intensity and the nature of the pain are so key.  Why the 24-hour pattern of pain helps our clinical reasoning, together with easing and aggravating factors.  General health, medication, and all special questions are discussed so that we come to understand why this information guides our assessment.  Moving to the objective assessment – we understand why we look at the person (posture) globally and then zone in locally.  Posture giving us so much information.  Navigating active and passive range of motion, special tests and motor control is included and discussed.
