Learning Objectives

Post completion of this virtual session you should be able to:

  1. Learn a variety of qualitative and quantitative test batteries to support the return to sport decision making in UE athletes
  2. Evaluate the psychometric properties of the physical performance tests utilized for return to sport testing
  3. Develop a functional testing algorithm for your clinical setting for OKC and CKC UE athletes and be able to synthesize the results clinically to assist in your return to sport decision making
  4. Discuss areas of limitations as it pertains to UE return to sport testing


Upper extremity return to sport testing is a topic which continues to receive much attention. New physical performance tests continue to be developed and described in the literature, some with better psychometric properties than others. These physical performances tests are designed to support our clinical decision making regarding clinical return to sport clearance. The purpose of this presentation is to review the variety of physical performance tests in the literature and help clinicians use the highest level of evidence available to develop a functional testing algorithm to assist with their clinical decision making for return to sport clearance.

Successful completion of this course will earn attendees 0.1 CEUS or 1 Contact hour.
