Here’s what people are saying about the course
Orthopedic Physical Therapist
and Gymnastics Coach
This was the best course I've taken on evaluating and treating upper extremity injuries!!
This course provides tons of great information, explanations, and PRACTICAL skills that can be used directly in the clinic.
There are lots of great demonstrations and downloadable handouts, templates, and powerpoint slides throughout the entire course.
As a new graduate, it can be really tough to find courses that help give a full picture of how to work with some of t these tough injuries.
After taking this course, I feel way more knowledgable and confident to handle injuries gymnasts face like shoulder instability, labral issues, elbow OCD, and wrist problems.
I'm looking forward to applying these new techniques and skills not only in the physical therapy clinic I work in but also with the athletes I work with in a gymnastics gym!
These concepts, evaluation techniques, and interventions can be applied to all sports and patients.
I would highly recommend this course for any one for works with UE injuries! AWESOME content!!
Former Level 10
and Division 1 Gymnast
"As a collegiate gymnast, I'm SO grateful for Dave's rehab programs.
In my senior year of high school, I tore my labrum doing a Tkachev on bars.
I went on to compete a whole season of college gymnastics after this but was still having a lot of trouble lifting my arm, making me unable to do bars or vault.
The summer after my freshman year of college, I had a bicep tenodesis on my left shoulder, fixing the labrum and my bicep.
After the surgery, I went to see Dave for rehab. I knew he would do a great job helping me come back from my shoulder surgery just as he had done after my foot surgery.
Dave made sure to create a plan for me that wasn't too aggressive, but was also safe and efficient in getting me back into gymnastics and stronger than I was before.
After the summer and going into my Sophomore year of college, my shoulder was progressing amazingly.
I was able to get back into vault and bars, and I am super happy and thankful that Dave was able to get me there!
Sports Physical Therapist
Co-Owner of Champion PT
"I've seen Dave use these exact techniques with 100s of gymnasts - and they work.
It's been great to see so many gymnasts finally get the sport specific evaluation, treatment, and return to sports programs they need when they have upper body injuries.
As someone who has worked with hundreds of elite level athlete's for shoulder and elbow rehabilitation, I know that what Dave is teaching is the best.
These science based techniques are easy to use and will no doubt help you be a better clinician.
If you're a provider working in gymnastics sports medicine, you need to take this course."
What's Inside The Course?
Module 1 - Introduction and Background
In this module, we discuss the latest research on upper extremity epidemiology, sport forces, injury patterns, and the key rehabilitation interventions for treating gymnasts over 4 video lectures.
Module 2 - Evaluation and Examination
Here, we review the essential subjective and objective techniques. We break down osseous, capsulolabral, muscular, neural, and kinetic chain influences for the shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints using lecture and lab videos.
Module 3 - Acute and Subacute Phases
The first 4-6 weeks of an injury can be extremely intimidating for clinicians. We discuss the exact hands on and exercise techniques for upper extremity injuries, discussing both surgical and non surgical situations.
Module 4 - Advanced and S&C Phases
We continue our course by covering the important phase of rebuilding global strength, power, and dynamic stability for upper extremity injuries. We also break down the exact upper body impact and plyometric exercise progressions gymnasts need before returning to training.

A Note From Dave
After years of work, I'm so excited to finally launch one of SHIFT's most highly anticipated medical course! I wanted to make sure that I did this right.
So I took extra time to review the research, pick topics that I knew people needed help with, and really break down everything medical providers need to know when working with gymnasts for shoulder, elbow, and wrist injuries.
Then I took all of my experiences as a gymnast and coach, combined them with the incredible mentorship I've had from of the world leading experts in sports rehabilitation, and also added in my clinical experience form treating 500+ gymnasts for shoulder, elbow, and wrist injuries
I promise that you will not regret signing up for this course. I can't wait to see you inside!
