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.
The Science of Taping will provide step-by-step instruction for more than 20 taping techniques for the foot and ankle, knee, hip region, upper extremity and spine. Learn to master techniques for ankle instability, ankle instability with posterior tibialis involvement, preventative taping for ankle, plantar fasciitis, bunions, plantar heel pain, patella femoral pain syndrome, IT band friction syndrome, greater trochanteric bursitis, turf toe, Achilles tendon problems, edema, lymphatic stagnation, pes anserine bursitis, MCL, anterior knee pain, patellar tendinitis, AC joint problems, generalized shoulder pain, rotator cuff pain, scapular instability, postural problems, back pain, lateral epicondylitis, golfer’s elbow and TFCC ligament issues.
This is a great online continuing education course to learn techniques for common athletic injury prevention and rehabilitation.
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 knee 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 knee complex); then examples of advanced exercises are illustrated to be incorporated with different patients at selected times in their rehabilitation programs. Selected manual therapy techniques are also demonstrated that can be used with patients’ who have selective hypomobilities.
The information presented in this course, while vestibular in nature, is combined with a comprehensive, interactive laboratory component. Its focus is on the class participants' "Monday Morning" issues. The structure and function of the vestibular system are thoroughly discussed along with testing, diagnostics and intervention strategies to address a large scope of symptoms and diagnoses. When therapists return to their jobs on Monday morning, they will likely encounter patients with problems related to upright instability. Although these patients may not be diagnosed with vestibular disorders, they are indeed equipped with vestibular systems. Without basic knowledge of vestibular structure and function, therapists will likely miss a crucial element of the initial evaluation--one that could very well lead to more successful intervention outcomes.
Determining the cause of a patient’s imbalance is just as important, or in some cases more important, than providing treatment for imbalance. This advanced course helps the medical professional determine the cause of imbalance, employ appropriate outcome measures, and implement the appropriate treatment. All examination and intervention strategies discussed are evidence-based and relevant to the patient with balance dysfunction. Vestibular, neurological, and orthopedic causes of imbalance will be discussed, including pathologies such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, cerebellar dysfunction, total joint arthroplasties, lumbar spine dysfunction, and vestibular dysfunction.
Maximize your ability to differentially diagnoses during your functional screening. This will maximize your treatment time with your clients and optimally will produce better functional outcomes in a shorter period of time. Learn to identify the mechanisms responsible for inefficiency and injury during a client’ s first treatment session and develop evidence based treatment approaches. Foot and ankle assessment will be presented, including evaluation of rear and forefoot alignment, internal and external drivers of foot posture, and passive and active mobility testing.
