Integrating Yoga Concepts into Orthopedic Rehabilitation

The benefits of yoga for musculoskeletal injuries are well-known and evidence-based. Yet, as medical practitioners, we do not get this unique and effective knowledge in our traditional schooling. This course, written and taught by a 20-year experienced board-certified orthopedic doctor of physical therapy and a certified yoga instructor, has the aim of integrating the key therapeutic benefits of yoga that are not taught in non-yoga schools into the established framework of the medical practitioner.

    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 Shoulder Complex

        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.

          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.

Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report neck pain are likely to present. Clinical presentations such as chronic neck pain, radiculopathy, traumatic onset, asymmetric movements, headache or myofascial pain are common in clinical practice. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations.

              Splinting the Hand, Wrist, and Elbow

              The art of custom splinting is an often frustrating and challenging skill to master. Invariably we find our best efforts in a pile of very expensive and awkward to handle mass of materials leaving both our patients and ourselves baffled by the outcome. Taking control of the materials through understanding their properties, characteristics and “feel”, along with a strong foundation of upper extremity biomechanics and surface anatomy can quickly turn the tables in your favor. Holding true to the title, these clinicians have created a remarkable formula for mastering splint fabrication in an introductory environment that incorporates ample opportunity to both observe and fabricate custom splinting, all the while, sharing the dos and don’ts that can only come from 20 years of trial and error. A fun, relaxed and non-intimidating workshop developed to replace frustrated and baffled with enlightened and confident. Diagnosis and conditions covered in this workshop include fractures, arthritis, contractures, CTDs and wounds. Emphasis is placed on replicating the actual patient environment. Course handouts and labs are designed to allow immediate clinical application of splinting techniques.

              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.
