Rehab & Clinic Skills
In The Shoulder: Implications for the Overhead Athlete and Beyond, physical therapist Sue Falsone will tell you what you need to know about the shoulder, including—
- Areas to pay attention to when working with overhead athletes
- How to assess the shoulder and identify possible issues
- Four common shoulder compensations found in overhead athletes, and how to correct them
Sue Falsone has had extensive experience working with overhead athletes, having worked as the head athletic trainer of the Major League Baseball team, the L.A. Dodgers, for six years, and at Athlete’s Performance (now EXOS) for thirteen years.
Sue is the owner of her consulting company, S&F, where she teaches healthcare clinicians the skills they need to get better results with their clients. She is also the Head of Athletic Training and Sport Performance with the US men’s national soccer team, and sits on the board of various sports organizations.
She designed this lecture, The Shoulder: Implications for the Overhead Athlete and Beyond, to help professionals from clinicians to ATCs, and strength coaches or personal trainers to physical therapists and chiropractors. Anyone working with athletes, clients or patients who have movement-based shoulder issues can help ease shoulder aches and pains and help prevent crippling injury.
So whether you’re working to help elite overhead athletes playing 162 games a season avoid shoulder injuries that can end a season or cost them a career…
… or with recreational athletes or desk jockeys looking to restore function without niggling injuries or pain, check out The Shoulder: Implications for the Overhead Athlete and Beyond and learn the skills you need to look after your clients.
If you’re looking for the missing puzzle piece to help protect your clients from future injury and to eliminate the roadblocks that hold them back from greater performance, you’ll find Gray Cook’s Functional Movement System as detailed inside the Movement book invaluable.
Inside you’ll discover a system that not only helps you screen and assess a person’s movement quality, but also a system that helps you identify the corrective strategies needed to help protect your clients from injury and help them move better.
If you’ve ever wanted to—
- understand why people get injured, and why their pain keeps returning
- improve your patient’s recovery process
- give people a strong foundation before loading them with weights
- eliminate training mistakes that delay results
- improve your client’s chances of making it through the athletic season without suffering a non-contact injury
- restore the quality life in people who have suffered in pain due to movement problems
- build more functional, longer lasting athletes
- avoid frustrations and improve patient outcomes when working with other healthcare and fitness professionals by learning a standardized language to communicate
… then Gray’s Functional Movement System outlined in Movement may be just what you need.
In his presentation, Pain, Lorimer provides you with a current state-of-the-art, scientifically backed, straight-forward science on how pain works. You’ll learn what you need to know and do to manage it, and how to help your patients recover normal function.
In this 140-minute DVD, Lorimer explores—
- The traditional yet erroneous understanding of pain
- How pain actually works: the concept of neurotags that integrate the last 50 years of experimental and clinical pain research
- The cortical body matrix theory: a model for understanding research from the last 5-10 years on chronic pain disorders

Though the FMS and SFMA have been both been the subject of academic research for years, there still remains a lot of debate and controversy behind the validity and value of a quick and general tool like the FMS, especially for injury prediction.
In particular, many people have highlighted a supposed difference in approach to screening, assessment and spine stabilization between Gray Cook and Stuart McGill, one of the world’s leading low back experts.
Craig Liebenson realized this, and proposed for these two giants in the field to present their approaches, clarify their positions and critically analyze the FMS.
The result is what you’ll find inside Assessing Movement: A Contrast in Approaches & Future Directions.
In the Assessing Movement DVD—
- Gray explains the principles, intent and incorrect assumptions people make about the FMS
- Stuart reviews the literature surrounding the FMS, and highlights areas of agreement and disagreement
- Stuart outlines his approach to assessments in Developing the Ideal Screen or Assessment
- Gray demonstrates the FMS tests, and Stuart demonstrates some of the assessment tools he uses with clients
- Craig discusses the history of human movement in medicine and patient care
- Gray and Stuart take questions about both their methods
