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.

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.

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.
