Sarah’s PhD investigated the effect of two different rehabilitation programs for patients with multidirectional instability of the shoulder (MDI). This research is a world first and found that a scapular specific and overhead rehabilitation program ( The Watson MDI Program) was significantly better than the standard rehabilitation for MDI in the literature. This research won the ASICS sports medal at the 2016 Sports Medicine Australia conference.
