Although we have been dealing with shoulder injuries in sports for 40 years, there is no validity or consensus on criteria for return to sports (RTS). The session will provide a practical guide for how testing should be performed, what tests and criteria should be used, and why these criteria need to be established using a Functional Testing Algorithm (FTA). Don’t miss this crucial session that will provide you with a step-by-step path for determining when to return to sports!
