Gait Recovery and Orthotic Management in Rehabilitation in Adults with Neurological Injury or Disease

This course will provide participants with essential tools for examination and evaluation of gait in adults with neurological injury or disease, with the end goal of determining appropriate therapeutic interventions and/or orthotic management to maximize gait recovery. Stroke will be the diagnosis emphasized in the course because of its prevalence, but the course will also address gait dysfunction and recovery in spinal cord injury, Parkinson ’s disease, multiple sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, and other neuromuscular disorders. Common gait deviations and trends in gait recovery will be discussed. Evidence based activity, exercise, and orthotic interventions specific to the rehabilitation and recovery of gait will be presented. Participants will have opportunities to see and handle orthotic examples and practice application of information through video and paper patient cases.

    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.

        Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation in Orthopedic Patients

        This two-day, evidenced based, laboratory intensive course will focus on teaching a historically useful manual therapy technique, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). The course introduces PNF as a manual therapy and exercise intervention technique to address common pathologies of both upper and lower extremities. The course is intended to provide the clinician with the skill to rehabilitate the patient with a hands-on, integrative approach. This will be accomplished through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and significant lab time. The structured sessions are aimed at emphasizing important concepts in neurophysiology and motor learning to improve neuromuscular control in orthopedic patients. Mastery of these techniques requires a solid foundation in basic anatomy and the pathomechanics of the shoulder and hip. Attendees will learn useful terminology, basic procedures, and techniques.

        Participants will learn to successfully apply PNF techniques in a manner that each patient-centered session is both therapeutic intervention and assessment or evaluation. The clinician will learn to develop and sequence a dynamic treatment plan incorporating PNF techniques that can be used for conservative and post-operative approaches. Current clinical evidence supports the combination of these treatments when properly performed and prescribed by a skilled clinician. Strategies for documentation and coding will also be covered.

          The Lumbo-Sacral Complex

          Low back pain is a significant contributor to disability worldwide and is one of the most common conditions for which patients seek care. Treatment approaches can often be confusing due to dogmatic classification systems, which can be overly complicated and difficult to apply in a clinically meaningful way. However, patients with regional disorders often present with similar clinical presentations. These clinical presentations can often guide clinicians towards the best treatment options.

          This course is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs the busy clinician. Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report low back pain are likely to present. Patients presenting with chronic low back pain, referred leg pain, SI dysfunction or even stenosis will often respond to similar treatment approaches. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations. Finally, treatment approaches are organized in a logical way providing examples of how the treatments could be integrated.

            Management of Nerve & Tendon Pain in the Upper Extremity

            This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues associated with repetitive stress injuries through the application of current clinical evidence. A thorough review of tendon/nerve physiology, pathomechanics, and surgical techniques will create a foundation for proper intervention. This foundation will then be used to develop assessment and treatment approaches to pathology associated with repetitive stress injuries. Course content includes current conservative and surgical treatment options, ergonomic assessment/intervention, imaging, post-surgical guidelines, splinting options, joint and soft tissue mobilization, modalities and specific therapeutic exercise techniques. The student will participate in lecture and small group discussion before implementing assessment and treatment strategies in laboratory sessions.

            Building Better Balance and Preventing Falls

            This two-day course provides participants with skills and strategies to address the complex problems of balance dysfunction and falls in geriatric and neurologic clients. Participants will further develop their skills in identifying individuals at risk for falls and using clinical examination to identify key components causing balance dysfunction and develop interventions. Utilization of functional outcome measures as a tool for creating effective balance and fall prevention programs will be emphasized. Evidence-based treatment strategies provide participants with a variety of skills to address different aspects of balance dysfunction across functional levels. Assessment procedures and treatment techniques will be demonstrated and reinforced with hands on practice time and case studies to allow for integration of the material.
