1 Perhaps people are already inactive prior to onset 2 "Remain physically active" is also vague with no dosage/individualization 3 Societal beliefs pain = harm = 》rest

Over Rx is contextual depending on irritability/disability some may not require that much, others more intensive. It's the minimum required to get maximum effect. Help pt to understand diagnosis/condition mgmt, progression, graded exposure and assist pt to build self efficacy 👍

In acute management 2-3 days is sensible as pt can have made significant progress, or if not still alleviate fear reassure to continue to move.

"Magic" tape is not a quick fix for complex persistent pain.. yet still so widely used PFP, LBP and in athletic populations with sport physios.

$22m to GP’s, $12m 2 pharmacists. Where is the money for our amazing physiotherapists?! It’s frustrating to see/hear daily reports of other health professions getting help. Assistance needs to be more equitable We’re all hurting!

Graduated load over the long term for best outcome is what I educate pts on. Produce / No Worse. Fast term pain relief would be ideal, in some cases it occurs, but not all tendons behave this way!

It's not a panacea, people have varied response to isometric load some will even be worse, in those case reducing the load to seated or supine is still a useful starting point for ppl with an irritable tendon, but I would progress the load back up in WB as soon as pt can tolerate

I'm interested to see why they want to call it functional shoulder instability vs the more accurate description of atraumatic instability, muscle patterning or voluntary instability. Doesn't seem to be functional at all.. unless a contortionist!
