09.00 Introduction - A sorry tale of past sins
Significance of problem; past mistakes and muddled thinking; the responsibility and importance of physiotherapy

09.30 Anatomy of the shoulder complex
Update on present anatomical knowledge; function of specific ligamentous restraints; intra-articular pressure; the cuff ? individual tendons or a single unit?; the bursa; the labrum; scapular resting position ? is normal the same as average, functional the same as optimal?

10.00 Biomechanics of the Shoulder Complex
Scapular-humeral movement ratio; force couple of the scapula; acromioclavicular, sternoclavicular and thoracic contributions; scapula 'setting' ? imperative or irrelevant? - the evidence
