If you can’t conclusively determine the structural pathology, how can you be confident in what you’re treating? A different approach for patients is to look at their history, their objectives, and the exam findings, and use these to try and categorize them or classify them according to what initial treatment approach makes the most sense. This approach, known as the classification system, has been clinically proven to produce clinical outcomes that are better than they would be if we were to try to chase the pathologic anatomy.
A concussion is a complex physiological process. A successful rehabilitation program provides a progressive, healing environment that promotes the improvement of functional and cognitive ability. Clinicians must be skilled in differentiating the results of special tests in order to identify the underlying mechanism of the dysfunction and develop an appropriate, individualized rehab program. This course provides you with the essential tools to properly evaluate and treat a concussion patient and develop effective rehab programs to improve function and overall quality of life.

As a clinician, what can I do first with a patient being treated for mechanical lumbosacral region pain in order to provide the best outcome possible for him/her? In other words, what gives me the best chance to provide the most effective and prompt care with my first interventions in the treatment of mechanical lumbosacral region pain? This course will help to answer this question, as you will learn the manual and clinical reasoning skills necessary to restore function and decrease pain in these patients.
One out of three adults over age 65 falls each year, which translates to millions of older adults experiencing a fall and possibly suffering from a lifelong disability. A rehab specialist properly trained in geriatric care can significantly impact the life of the geriatric patient for fall prevention, strengthening, and safe mobility. Attend this course and learn rehab techniques that will benefit this aging population and positively impact an older person’s quality of life.
Understanding Posture and the elements contributing therein can be the gateway to unlocking optimal biomechanics The effective intervention for lumbopelvic dysfunction must be organized around an understanding of static and dynamic posture. Intervention should integrate the anatomic/physiologic components of both biomechanical and neuromechanical dysfunction in the context of postural control. Learn strategies developed for examination and intervention regarding postural inefficiencies in order to repair and optimize movement dysfunction.
