A Feldenkrais Approach to the Treatment of Shoulder Joint Dysfunctions

Injury to the shoulder is one of the most common problems seen in an orthopedic practice. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 7.5 million physician visits are related to shoulder pain every year. The joint is highly mobile, inherently unstable and the treatment of shoulder pain and dysfunction often presents a challenge to even most experienced therapists.

In this course you will advance and transform theoretical knowledge into a clear three-dimensional, kinesthetic and dynamic understanding of the shoulder joint complex. You will learn how to incorporate elements of Feldenkrais techniques in physical therapy treatments geared toward the improvement of basic functions such as reaching, lifting, weight-bearing, manipulating objects, pushing and pulling. We will also explore Feldenkrais techniques applicable in rehabilitation of:

• Shoulder instability and ligamentous laxity

• Rotator cuff injuries

• Subacromial impingement

• Adhesive capsulitis

• Biceps pathologies

• Bursitis and tendinopathy

During this workshop we will deconstruct specific Awareness Through Movement® lessons that are particularly applicable in the rehabilitation of patients with shoulder pathology and pain. You will have a first-hand, sensory experience of the Feldenkrais exercises and hands-on techniques.

SPEAKER/BIO

Marek Wyszynski, PT, GCFP

I am an experienced physical therapist and Feldenkrais Practitioner specializing in movement education, rehabilitation and wellness programs, methods of improving athletic and artistic performance and counseling. I have an extensive knowledge and expertise in the treatment of acute and chronic pain, orthopedic and neurological dysfunctions. I am a Hospital for Special Surgery Certified Advanced Hip Clinician. In addition, I have considerable expertise in training, public program development and implementation. I studied and worked with the world-renowned physician Dr. Hans Kraus (one of the fathers of sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation, the pioneer of trigger-point therapy and president Kennedy's back pain physician). I am a published author and a former national fencing champion (Poland) and coach. I am president of Physical Therapy & Feldenkrais NYC, P.C., co-founder of The Feldenkrais Institute of New York, L.L.C. and vice-president of The Feldenkrais Foundation.

“I believe Marek Wyszynski’s extraordinary fluency in anatomy and physiology facilitates his lucid teaching of self-awareness, self-correction, efficiency of movement and the Feldenkrais technique.”
