Looking for a quick and easy way to learn about the evaluation and treatment of the Hip complex? This course will NOT provide that, what it will provide is comprehensive knowledge of the complexity of the hip joint as well as evaluation and treatment techniques. Michael P. Reiman , PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, ATC, FAAOMPT, CSCS is thorough and meticulous in his narration and execution of the evaluation of the hip joint. He follows up a spectacular evaluation with narration of key exercises and techniques for treatment of the hip complex. A great course on a complex subject, follow this course up with a live event so that your hands on skill match the knowledge gained in this course.
Carol McFarland, PT, PhD, OCS details postoperative evaluation and treatment of spine patients with an emphasis on maximizing their surgical outcomes. Carol explains post operative spinal evaluations, identifies standardized outcomes tools, how to perform post operative spine evaluations for the various stages of post operative progression and much more! This course is essential for any therapist treating the post operative spine.
Everyone gets a headache right? We've taken Dr. Chris Durall, PT, DPT, SCS, LAT, CSCS expertise with the cervical spine and focused it on Cervicogenic headaches. The DVD is an awesome tool for cervical spine and upper thoracic evaluation and treatment self study and practice. The online education takes that information and applies it to the evaluation and treatment of cervicogenic headaches. We integrated some 3D anatomical motion animation and shot this movie with multiple camera angles to enhance your ability to understand the techniques
The outcomes achieved from performing Myofascial release techniques are largely dependent on the skill of the clinician performing the technique. This course is unique because it combines manual techniques with the training to enhance kinesthetic perception. These two very important components work together when performing direct and indirect techniques for membranes, tendons, ligaments, dura, organs, ribs and essentially all parts of the body. A review of current evidence-based research will reveal the theory behind the application for specific disorders. Another unique aspect of this course is that it teaches not only how to perform the techniques but also how to incorporate the therapist’ s sense of touch, thus enabling him/her to identify deep tissue movement and obtain desired outcomes.
Optimal surgical outcome for the cervical and lumbar spine can only be achieved when it is followed by a rehab protocol that maintains the effectiveness of the surgical intervention. Implementing the most appropriate rehab protocol must be based on the type of surgical intervention and patient specific condition. As surgical procedures change so must the rehab approach. It is therefore essential for a therapist to stay current in the understanding of surgical intervention in order to design and implement the most effective rehab program. This course will address a therapist’s primary and intrinsic understanding of surgical approaches and techniques for the cervical and lumbar spine, including microdiscectomy, PLIF, DLIF, TLIF, ACDF, and posterior cervical fusion. This understanding will form the foundation in the development and implementation of safe rehabilitation procedures and interventions for the respective spinal surgery performed in order to achieve optimal post-operative recovery.
If you understand the biomechanics, you will understand and be able to create an effective treatment solution. This course provides the essential biomechanical concepts along with focused manual techniques for immediate and effective clinical application and results. The concepts can be applied to the athlete as well as the geriatric patient with shoulder dysfunction.
