Internal Shoulder Impingement

Internal Shoulder Impingement

Learn to manage internal shoulder impingement more effectively
This course and the whole of Physioplus changed my view on learning after my degree - there are no longer exams, no longer anybody behind my back to push me harder. Physioplus gave me opportunity to really learn something, pushed me to really dig into the topic, and at the end rated me - so I know if I'm going right way. I really recommend it to anybody wanting to be a better clinician.
