Return to Sport after shoulder injury

This webinar has ended July 10th - 2019





The Webinar

PhysioScholar is pleased to host the launch of the Shoulder Arm Return to Sport (SARTS) tests. The SARTS tests were developed to replicate positions of load and stress in the shoulder during sporting activity. The test battery comprises a total of 13 tests, 5 of which are bilateral and examine limb symmetry. During a research sabbatical at the University of Kentucky, Dr Margie Olds worked with Professor Tim Uhl to examine the reliability of the SARTS tests. Margie has since completed this study and recently published a research paper on the reliability of the SARTS test battery in the journal, Physical Therapy In Sport. This webinar will introduce the SARTS tests battery and discuss the inter-rater and intra-rater reliability of the tests. The effect of dominance will also be discussed in the 5 tests which examine the limb symmetry of the shoulder. Further information regarding the SARTS battery of tests are available online at www.margieolds.com
