In this PowerTalk, Ben Ashworth will present the ‘Athletic Shoulder Testing Framework’. This framework was designed to solve the problem of lack of objective data to guide decision-making around rehabilitation programming and implementation. It will be a highly practical orientated lecture with clinical representations. Practitioners will have the opportunity to explore specific components of shoulder testing, including tests of mobility work capacity force production and rate of force development using the test results.

Trials will inform the targeted conditioning for individuals recovering from surgery or injury and also healthy individuals aspiring to optimise their physical shoulder performance.


Through participating in the PowerTalk candidates will:

  • Receive a background of high tech and low tech test options with normal data based on evidence and our experience
  • Be able to set up targeted strength programmes for rotator cuff in healthy athletes
  • Have an understanding of in-season exercise programming for the overhead athlete 
  • Be able to translate the content through the specific case examples and rehabilitation case studies that will be presented
