Gait Training-An Evidence Based Course Combining Manual Therapy, Exercise and Functional Activities is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Apr 27 - 28, 2019 at Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, Seattle, Washington, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is PT, PTA, OT, OTA, AT. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 contact hours/1.5 ceu’s. This course is 18 contact hours/1.8 ceu’s for therapists licensed in Illinois, New York, or the District of Columbia.
This intermediate level 2-day course provides an orthopedic perspective in the evaluation and treatment of the neurologically involved lower extremity with the use of evidence based practice. This course will provide studies that support common theories and treatments involved with the treatment of the lower extremity with a focus on function and gait. The concepts and principles demonstrated in this course enhance both the clinician’s knowledge base and hands-on skills. Clinicians will learn to not only identify impairments in alignment, but prioritize which impairment is affecting function. They will analyze movement patterns specifically with gait, determine musculoskeletal dysfunctions (including muscle imbalances) and develop a working therapy diagnosis with appropriate therapeutic intervention. Course instruction is enhanced by extensive group interaction and hands-on practice of the evaluation procedures (with case studies). Treatment approaches are aimed at soft tissue mobilization, flexibility activities, strengthening exercises and proprioceptive activities that will improve gait and mobility with patients. Break out sessions will include video analysis of actual patients to allow the clinician to systematically diagnosis patient dysfunction and develop a progessive functional treatment plan.
• Differentiate appropriate evaluation techniques and develop treatment programs for specific musculoskeletal restrictions in the neurologically involved lower extremity.
• Analyze gait abnormalities and prioritize impairments to develop a treatment plan focused on improving function rather than just improving impairments.
• Identify which muscles are firing/not firing at the appropriate/inappropriate time during a gait cycle.
• Identify muscle imbalances through weakness, length tension disruption and joint hyper/hypomobility.
• Design a specific plan of care for each individual patient aimed at the appropriate dysfunction.
• Discuss how specific treatments are supported by evidence based research.
• Discuss the difference in treatment focused on improving function versus improving impairments.
• Demonstrate manual skills to perform soft tissue mobilization (including mobilization with movement and muscle bending), strengthening exercises (including NDT techniques), proprioceptive activities and stretching techniques.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
