GRASP Best Practice Advice and Exercise Programme for Shoulder Pain
Discover the benefits of the GRASP Best Practice Advice and Exercise Programme
Rotator cuff related shoulder pain is a common condition that causes impaired function. Regular exercise and advice play a crucial role in improving and managing pain and the ability to perform day-to-day activities.
This two-week course for health professionals will introduce you to the GRASP (Getting it Right Addressing Shoulder Pain) Best Practice Advice and Exercise Programme to help improve treatment in your clinical practice.
The GRASP trial conducted by the Centre for Rehabilitation Research at the University of Oxford showed that a single GRASP best practice and advice session with a physiotherapist was likely to be cost-effective and is not significantly different in terms of clinical outcomes when compared with physiotherapy intervention of up to six face-to-face sessions.
