Stress, Movement, and Pain: A Systematic Approach

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.

The Foot and Ankle Complex

The foot and ankle comprise one of the most fascinating and complex areas of human anatomy and divine engineering. Dysfunction in this anatomical region can be difficult to assess, and the same physiological movements often are referenced using several different terms. Foot function can influence lower quarter kinematics and kinetics, as well as lower quarter function having the potential to influence foot kinematics and kinetics. The purpose of this program is to enhance the ability to: understand the biomechanics of this anatomic region; assess foot, ankle, and selected aspects of lower quarter dysfunction accurately; and plan and implement appropriate treatment regimens for these pathologies, including the use of foot orthoses and shoewear.
