Successful evaluation and treatment of the shoulder complex entails an accurate understanding of its normal and abnormal anatomy, pathomechanics and biomechanics. Treatment of the shoulder can be complex and confusing based upon the multitude of approaches that exist. By utilizing a systematic approach, therapists and athletic trainers may focus on a problem-solving basis to accurately and successfully evaluate patients with a variety of shoulder conditions. Included in this two-day workshop is an overview of the most common orthopedic conditions in which therapeutic intervention is indicated, evaluation and treatment schemes to promote successful outcomes and significant lab time. Attendees will further their development involving effective evaluation and treatment (surgical as well as non-surgical); including differential diagnosis, manual therapy, exercise prescription and evidence supported treatment techniques for the shoulder proper.
Whether you practice in outpatient, in-patient, acute care, orthopedics or neurology nearly all your patients are experiencing stress and it is fundamentally affecting how they move and perceive the world and themselves.
This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues centered around the neuroscience of stress and movement
through the application of current clinical evidence. We will identify the relationship between perception, the autonomic nervous system, the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis, and movement to create a foundation for proper intervention. This foundation will then be used to develop assessment and treatment approaches to pathology associated with stress and movement.
Designed for the clinician not interested in the status quo; you will learn how to improve your patient outcomes regardless of specialty or condition because the science of stress, perception, and movement is foundational to all human experience.
This course will provide participants with essential tools for clinical examination and intervention of persons following a stroke, across the continuum of care. Common impairments, activity restrictions, and participation limitations will be discussed. Evidence based interventions specific to the rehabilitation and recovery of basic mobility following stroke will be presented. Participants will have opportunities to see and work through examples and practice application of information through lecture and hands on labs.
