Spinal Cord Injury is truly a unique educational program featuring a paraplegic and a quadriplegic performing specific rehab activities. Selina Morgan PT, ATP demonstrates and narrates patient transfers, mobility exercises, wheelchair related activity and brace utilization. In addition, Manual Muscle Testing, wheelchair related issues and many other topics are explored in detail. Imagine your spinal cord patients learning mobility techniques by watching other SCI patients perform those techniques! If you are treating SCI patients this film and educational course is essential to your professional development.
SI Joint Pain? Michael P. Reiman , PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, ATC, FAAOMPT, CSCS reprises his star roll in this comprehensive narration and demonstration of evaluation and treatment techniques for the SI joint. Multiple camera angles and close up detail shots ensure that your catching all the action. The SI Joint Evaluation and Treatment covers twenty-eight treatment techniques, including nine mobilizations and six muscle energy techniques. Michael P. Reiman also narrates and demonstrates twenty-seven examination techniques for the SI joint.
George J. Davies, DPT, MEd, PT, SCS, ATC, LAT, CSCS, FAPTA, PES provides evidence based therapeutic exercises guidelines for developing rehabilitation programs for patients with various shoulder pathologies. Foundational exercises are described first to work each link in the kinematic chain in an isolated manner to build the “foundation” to progress to the advanced functional specificity exercises. After a solid foundation is established by working each link in the kinematic chain (muscle groups in the shoulder complex); then examples of advanced exercises are illustrated to be incorporated with different patients at selected times in their rehabilitation programs.
Combine forty years of clinical experience with expertise from over one hundred evidence based research articles and you have a recipe for an advanced shoulder course providing the most up to date practical evidenced based information. This hands-on course will enhance your expertise in examination, manual therapy, and reasoning skills, thus providing you with the expertise to develop advanced therapeutic exercise programs for shoulder dysfunction.
Current research in integrative medicine has shown that a dynamic systems approach to rehabilitation can play a significant role in enhancing functional outcomes for people with stroke, MS, Parkinson’s and Post Polio Syndrome. In this course, integrative techniques -- such as tai chi, yoga, health-focused meditation, and acupressure -- along with traditional neurological methods such as soft tissue techniques to reduce tone, trigger point and myofascial release, and lymphedema massage for the swollen upper extremity patients; are incorporated with traditional western medical treatments.
Participants will leave this course with a wealth of ideas to take to their clinics for addressing the obstacles that people with neurological disorders often face. You will feel confident with modifying these activities so that even your lower level patients can participate and benefit with measurable functional outcomes.
Mobility is one of the most important factors when dealing with post-op fracture repair. Understanding the mechanisms of injury, surgical procedures and healing process will provide you with the ability to develop an appropriate progressive rehab program. Learn the essentials in this course to enhance, mobility, proprioception, motor skills and overall functional ability.
