Manual shoulder therapy

Focus on tendon shoulder / frozen shoulder

Multi-professional training


Price: 550 €

The objective of this training is to offer therapists, from an essentially practical internship, an overview of the pathologies of the cuff as well as the frozen shoulder. From diagnosis to treatment.

The first part of the course will be devoted to anatomical and biomechanical reminders necessary for understanding movement. The pathophysiology of the rotator cuff and frozen shoulder will then be discussed. Clinical scenarios will be used to illustrate the explanations. A precise and systematic clinical examination based on the concept of triage (differential diagnosis and exclusion) and based on the tests presenting the most validity and reliability possible will be presented. The resulting treatment will thus be specific to each patient without applying any “recect” or “predefined protocols”. The different management strategies presented on the basis of the literature provided will then be discussed.

A few selected tools will fill the practical sequences (passive techniques, active techniques, education and communication). In conclusion, a synthesis built with the participants will close the training. The educational approach aims to ensure that at the end of each seminar, the participant can directly apply the techniques learned and transpose them into the treatment of his patients.

A graduate of physiotherapist masseur since 2005, Matthieu LOUBIÈRE has held since 2012 an osteopath title, since 2014 a Master 2 in educational science, since 2018 a DU in clinical research methodology, since 2021 of a CMP certificate of practice of the Mulligan concept.

After a few years of liberal practice, he invested in teaching and gradually divided his activity between clinical practice specializing in Musculoskeletal and training. He has been teaching since 2007 in continuous training and since 2009 in initial training.

Its commitment allows it to participate not only in the organization of courses, courses and scientific validation (scientific direction of ITMP for 3 years, training for trainers, intervention within three IFMKs) but also to participate in monitoring and holding of the state diploma of Physiotherapist Masseur (10 sessions). It also welcomes foreign trainers and produces written and oral translations.

He participated in the creation and is co-manager of a training company GEM-K which organizes, hosts and conducts training in central eastern France. In 2017, he created a podcast and blog to promote physiotherapy and evidence-based practice.

To maintain and update knowledge in physiotherapy, he continues to train on average five times a year in both short and long courses.

His taste for human relations and the network thus constituted and maintained during all these years, allows him today to enter into communication with many resource persons. It thus develops partnerships with other training organizations (GBF, Kiné Lille, Kiné & Co, Synetic Formation). He is a member of learned societies (OMT France, SFP) and participated in the scientific committee of two congresses, one of which was responsible (JFK, REP).

He regularly participates in professional congresses (JFK, Gicare, SPB) and has published around twenty articles in national and indexed journals (Kiné la Revue, EMC, Main sLibres). He is the winner of the 2019 SFP Grand Prize.
