"The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course has a lot of great content that is broken down into manageable chunks that you can watch at your own pace, and review at any time.
I feel more confident now with assessment, diagnosis and treatment of shoulder patients."
"The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course has really helped streamline my assessment and treatment of shoulder pain.
The course has really practical straightforward information that's easy to follow and has improved my clinical practice."
"I'm enjoying the course immensely! Shoulder pain patients were previously a cohort that I always found the most challenging, and I found the shoulder the most difficult joint in the body.
It has been refreshing, even for an old Physio, to use Jo's course and approach with shoulder pain patients. I especially like the emphasis on the kinetic chain and psycho-social aspects.
I'm able to apply the course content immediately with my patients, and am getting great results that will only get better with time."
Fairfield (Victoria), Australia.
My name is Jo Gibson, and I'm a Upper Limb Rehab Specialist Physio working in Liverpool (UK), specialising in the treatment of shoulder pain.
I love treating shoulder pain, staying up to date with all of the latest shoulder pain research and consider myself a Shoulder Geek!
Using the latest research and 25 years of clinical experience as a Clinical Specialist Physio in the Liverpool Upper Limb Unit, I've developed a unique approach to shoulder pain assessment and treatment that I use everyday in my clinical practice with patients ranging from elite athletes through to office workers, young athletes through to grandparents.
I love sharing this approach and helping therapists learn to enjoy treating shoulder pain successfully.
Which is a HUGE change from when I started out in the NHS, when I dreaded treating shoulder pain.
I found shoulder pain so complicated, and every article or book I read, or course I went on seemed to make it even more complicated!
I would watch my patients move hoping to see all the other things the experts told me I should see about the scapula and kinematics.
I would go through my gambit of special tests, Hawkins-Kennedy, impingement tests, ACJ and SLAP tests, rotator cuff tests – so many tests! And then try and work out a diagnosis or a structure at fault.
It was confusing and I felt rubbish!
I seemed to collect loads of information and got more and more confused and when I look back I am sure I confused my patients too!
I remember as a new Band 6 physio in my first ever musculoskeletal outpatients placement – it seemed that everyone around me was more confident, more experienced and just better than me at treating patients with shoulder pain.
I had patients who just didn’t progress or even worse the exercises I gave them made their pain worse.
I had patients who were on treatment for what felt like forever – I would try every exercise or technique that I knew and still they would come back every week saying it’s the same. I would go on courses convinced that if only I knew some other techniques or a different approach to exercise everything would be okay.
I discovered the simple things that make a huge difference.
A simple assessment that lets you know
without having to perform a lot of tests that just confuse you and your patient.
A simple approach to rehab - your assessment helps identify the most effective exercises for your patient, that your patient can use to start improving their pain immediately.
How did I go from dreading treating shoulder pain and feeling like I was failing, to developing a passion for helping people with shoulder pain, becoming a Upper Limb Rehab Specialist Physio and teaching shoulder courses?
Over the past 25 years, I've treated tens of thousands of shoulder pain patients and figured out what works for almost every shoulder pain patient you can think of.
The shoulder assessment and treatment framework you'll find inside this course have helped thousands of therapists around the world to get great results with shoulder pain, faster than ever before.
The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course will give you access to all the assessment tests, exercises, exercise progressions and manual therapy techniques that I use every day to successfully treat all types of shoulder pain, so you can use them immediately with your patients, and become the most successful therapist with shoulder pain in your clinic or area!
Jo Gibson and I met up in Niseko Japan, and had a lot of fun recording the 2020 Shoulder: Steps to Success online course.

“The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course is terrific, one of the best courses I've ever attended. It's very practical, has helped with diagnosis in my role as a GP, and has completely changed my treatment of shoulder pain and how I train my trainee colleagues. The nerve module in the course helped me identify a patient injury that I would not have picked up previously - an axillary nerve post forced internal rotation pull, despite no dislocation on Xray. Thank you!”.
The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course has massively changed my way of assessing and treating shoulders.
Instead of having to focus on the problem or diagnosis, I look for solutions.
It encourages patients when they can see they have the potential to move their arm with less pain, instead of just confirming their shoulder is sore with provocative tests (that don't tell us anything most of the time).
Everything in the course is easy to follow, understand and apply with patients in clinic instantly.
Also the support in the FB group is amazing, it really helps with those difficult cases.
The course has not only given me more confidence, but gives my patients more confidence in their rehab (and my treatment)..
JACQUELINE VAN EIS
"I like that I can do it in my own time, and go back and review the course at any time. My knowledge and differential diagnosis has really improved, and I've picked up a lot of treatment ideas.
It honestly was one of the most useful courses I have done in 20 years of clinical practice."
“Thanks so much for such a fantastic course, I love everything about it!
I have found the practical assessment, treatment and ideas for exercise really great and so helpful.
The course has given me lot of go-to strategies and helped with realistic expectations for recalcitrant patients.
It's highly informative and user-friendly. Jo’s knowledge base and ability to explain is exceptional.
The case studies, ability to easily refer back to the course, and live Q&A sessions are great. I really love everything in the course!
There is so much wonderful information, it keeps me enthusiastic about shoulders!”.
“I have loved The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course. All the material has been awesome, with the perfect balance of lecture material and practical exercise examples. I have found it very refreshing to come away with specific, yet simple and very effective exercises to implement as objective testing as well adding in to a home exercise program. While I don't come across many of the wobbly or frozen shoulders I have found the material to be fantastic and has given me the confidence and desire to take on any shoulder patient.
I think my favourite module was module 4, using the kinetic chain, which I have found to be very successful so far. I loved all the bonus modules and module 5, setting the system up for success as well.”
The course has helped me enormously!
I love that I can do it in my own time, and review modues. I haven't yet completed the course due to 2 bouts of COVID and a business move, but started module 10 last week and always feel so inspired by the course. I'll probably go back to the start again once I've completed it, now that I'm putting it into action, as I'm sure it will make even more sense the second time around.
I'm already seeing great results, and love that my clinical reasoning has improved along with my ability to justify and describe treatment plans to patients and insurance companies.
It's definitely the best money I have invested in my CPD!
"I rave about the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course and Clinical Edge website to fellow Physios.
The ease of being able to go over exercises and the info at 5-10 minute intervals at work or home is simply brilliant.
The course has helped immensely in getting my shoulder patients better. One of my patients saw two different physios before me without any change, now he is improving.
I'm afraid all online learning I take part in does not seem to come up to the standard Jo and Clinical Edge have set.
I'm so pleased I purchased this valuable tool! Thank you!
I love Jo's enthusiasm for the shoulder, simplicity of the approach, up to date information and the ongoing support we receive.
The course has really simplified the shoulder, condensed my assessment and reduced the amount of tests I need to perform in an objective.
The numerous exercise videos have given me a lot of different exercises to choose from, and a much clearer direction with treatment to know exactly how to select exercises for the best results with each of my patients.".
“As a clinical specialist physiotherapist working with shoulders I found Jo’s online series extremely enlightening. As always Jo’s delivery and demonstrations provided both clarity and food for thought which has led me to re evaluate my clinical practice. I would heartily recommend it to all therapists no matter what experience”.
Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist
"Jo's Shoulder: Steps to Success online course has so much practical and comprehensive information, it's been transformative in my understanding and enthusiasm for treating shoulders.
I use the course material every single day in my practise either with my patients, or when conducting teaching sessions with physiotherapy colleagues, MDT colleagues and students.
Musculoskeletal Specialist Physio
“I am nearly at the end of the Shoulder course and I would like to say what a well structured, delivered and clinically relevant course. In an industry saturated with courses it is difficult to find a course of real true value which balances EBP and Clinical needs. This course just did that.
Jo Gibson's delivery is very clear and the structure of the course follows the logic applied in the clinic. Well done. I will recommend it to all my students and colleagues.”
"Thank you for creating such an amazing course. I am excelling in my last placement because of this course and I just want you and Jo to know you are doing amazing things for future physiotherapists!”
“Thank you, I am really enjoying the course! I found a spare hour this morning and was able to join Jo! It is of course an excellent way to learn, thank you!”
"Thankyou very much for organising such a great course.
The Shoulder: Steps to Success online course has updated my knowledge about shoulder rehab with the latest evidence.
The course is very well organised with the videos, audio downloads, PDF's and frequent Q&A's. Clinical Edge have also been in close contact with participants and have been very helpful.
It has helped me understand different shoulder pathologies and provide exercise programs for each patient."
Plaines Wilhems, Mauritius
"I want to say how much I love your course!
Thankyou for the work you put into this, I think the whole delivery was absolutely fantastic. I loved how each module was thought out in detail. With each video, I'm immersed in, and benefit from the wealth of experience and information Jo has developed since specialising in shoulders since 1996.
Shoulder pain assessment can be complex, time-consuming and overwhelming.
You have a vast array of objective assessment tests to choose from for the rotator cuff, long head of biceps tendon, scapula, glenohumeral joint (GHJ), acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) and the C/sp.
If you test all these areas, and get a lot of positive/painful results, what is causing your patients pain?
You need a way to simplify your shoulder assessment, cut down on the tests you need to perform and make diagnosis easy.
In the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course you’ll discover specific questions you can ask your patients to identify the likely diagnosis before you’ve even started your objective assessment. You then only need a few tests in your objective assessment to test and rule in or out your diagnosis so you can then target your treatment.
Way simpler and quicker.
You’ll quickly identify a likely diagnosis for your patient, so you can explain it simply and confidently and your patient feels confident they’re in good hands.
Yes, in a lot of cases!
The questions you’ll learn to ask in your patient history, from the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course, will give you 80% of the information you need to make a diagnosis.
You’ll then use your subjective history to choose a few simple objective assessment tests that test your hypothesis, and easily pinpoint the cause of your patients’ pain.
In the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course you’ll discover how to quickly and easily identify the cause of your patients shoulder pain, including:
You’ll discover with detailed practical demonstration videos and case studies, the simple objective tests that will help you quickly make a diagnosis of your patients shoulder pain, and importantly know how to treat it.
In the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course you’ll discover practical video demonstrations that take you through how to use simple improvement tests (symptom modification) and a unique treatment approach to immediately improve your patients pain and range of movement.
You’ll use your improvement/symptom modification tests to identify the best starting exercises for your patients, that are focused on addressing your patients main concerns and painful movements, e.g. pain when they reach up into the cupboard, hanging clothes on the clothesline, or performing bench or overhead press in their gym routine.
Whatever is most important to your patient - you’ll know how to focus your rehab around helping your patient with THEIR biggest problems so they can achieve their goals.
Your patients will be highly motivated and excited to do their exercises, because their pain immediately improves, and they can see and feel the progress they’re making towards their goals.
You’ll know exactly how and when to progress their exercises, and what to do if your patient has a flare up.
You’ll love the results you’re getting with shoulder pain, and really enjoy treating shoulders!
The unique symptom modification/improvement tests in the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course help to make life easier for your patients’ shoulder, give some sensory input, offer a little resistance and potentially distract your patients by moving differently.
These experiences of change are very powerful for your patient.
When your improvement tests reduce the experience of pain and improve function, you can then promote or reinforce your educational messages related to pain, challenge negative beliefs and reduce threat. We can then translate this into function so that your patient can reproduce this themselves and gain confidence.
Your patient will feel confident, and you’ll be confident you’re on the right track with your exercise program, and the next time you see your patient their pain will have improved.
Manual therapy is often misused, and gets a lot of bad press.
Manual therapy can be helpful in improving patients symptoms and range of movement, however patients often have an improvement in symptoms for a couple of days after manual therapy, and then come back feeling exactly the same.
You want to know how and when to use manual therapy judiciously for a limited number of sessions, and how to make sure improvements in your patients symptoms and ROM are long term.
In the Shoulder: Steps to Success online course you’ll explore practical demonstrations that will take you through how and when to use clinically reasoned manual therapy short-term with your shoulder pain patients.
When your patient has a positive response to manual therapy, you’ll know which exercises to give your patients to ensure their symptoms continue to improve.
You’ll eliminate your manual therapy doubts, as you become confident in the knowledge that you’re providing evidence-based treatment that is helping your patients long term, and placing them in the drivers seat for their recovery.
