Injury rates among windmill-style female pitchers are increasing and almost half will experience pain during year. This telecast will include lecture providing the scientific & clinical evidence for treatment of the female shoulder, specifically female athletes in softball and fast-pitch softball.
This program will include lecture, video and live patient demonstration in the treatment of this challenging condition.
This live webtelecast will also be available to students who were unable to view the live webtelecast. Participants who view the on-demand webtelecast will be required to demonstrate mastery of the presented materials through completion of an online assessment or test.
