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 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.
