This text-based course is a transcript of the live webinar titled, "Management of Shoulder Subluxation After Stroke", presented by Salvador Bondoc, OTD, OTR/L, BCPR, CHT, FAOTA
>> Salvador Bondoc: It is my pleasure to be in your virtual presence to present a topic that I am very fascinated with. I am sure you are all curious about the issue of shoulder subluxation and pain in persons with stroke. Who with us today currently has a patient with stroke and just happens to have a shoulder subluxation problem? It seems about half of you have a patient currently who is dealing with shoulder pain and/or subluxation. I hope that you learn some clinical pearls from this presentation that you may incorporate readily in your plan of care either today or in the very near future. I also want to thank you for taking the time in your busy day to listen and participate in this program.
Let's take a look at our learning objectives. Our learning objectives for today and what we hope to accomplish by the end of the presentation are as follows:
- Be able to describe the prevalence and the pathomechanics of stroke-related glenohumeral (GH) pain and subluxation. It is also known as hemiplegic shoulder pain and subluxation in the literature or HSP. If you see that acronym in stroke literature, it refers to the shoulder.
- State the evidence for managing glenohumeral subluxation and pain associated with stroke.
- Be able to design an intervention plan to address glenohumeral subluxation and pain.
