Revolutionary Shoulder Care for Spinal Cord Injury


By Julie Grant, OTR/L and Jill McVey, DPT, ATC

If you push a wheelchair, transfer yourself, or use a walker/crutches, you know that your shoulders do more than their fair share. Are you struggling with your shoulder health or concerned about keeping your shoulders healthy for the long term? Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by conflicting or confusing advice? Clinicians and therapists, are you seeking new ways to provide optimal care? Julie Grant, OTR/L, and Jill McVey, DPT, ATC will share their clinical and personal experience and dissect the research literature to help you more effectively care for your shoulders (or the shoulders of your patients). Whether you need to know if that pinch in the shoulder will go away if you just ignore it or if you need to overhaul your entire strength program, Julie and Jill have you covered. Let the revolution (in shoulder care) begin! Continuing education credits will be available for physical and occupational therapists: 1.5 contact hours.

We want to know about the shoulder advice that you have received. Please complete this one-question survey no later than September 6, 2019: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JQ6DC5G

5:30 – 6:30 PM Meet & Greet: Meet in the hospital cafeteria (Plaza Café) to socialize and eat (buy or bring dinner) before the forum. No RSVP— just show up! (Call 206-616-2183 or email nwrscis@ if you have questions.)
