S4 - Functional Analysis & Management of Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex - Instructed by Amanda Grant, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, CLT, FAAOMPT is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Dec 14 - 15, 2019 at Phoenix, Arizona, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Physical Therapists. Hours: 16 or 1.6 CEUs (includes 1 online hour) or 2 graduate credits Prerequisite: S1; Intro S4 Webinar is included with S4 Description: A biomechanical and neurophysiological approach to the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex is presented. Emphasis is placed on the functional relations within this region so as to understand pelvic girdle dysfunction. Research documentation of the anatomical and mechanical roles of the related structures is provided. Topic areas include: functional anatomy, biomechanics of the sacroiliac and pubic joints, muscular and ligament influences, select pathologies, effects of the pregnancy, labor and delivery as well as dysfunction in the form of pathomechanics and pathophysiology. Laboratory experience involves the demonstration and practice of clinical evaluation methods for assessing dysfunction in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex. The evaluation process approaches the problem from both joint and muscular standpoints. Treatment of pelvic dysfunction is also multi-dimensional and therefore soft tissue and joint mobilization is offered. In addition, time is provided for an introduction to the concepts and application of techniques such as positional release, respiratory assist mobilization and muscle energy. Patient education strategies integrating therapeutic exercise with manual interventions will be presented. Methods for self mobilization and stabilization are demonstrated. Additional suggestions relating to bracing, injection or ADL may also be included in management. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the attendee should be able to: • Demonstrate knowledge as well as clinical understanding of the functional anatomy in the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Practically relate the biomechanics of the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex to patient evaluation and treatment • Possess knowledge of pelvic dysfunction with respect to altered joint mechanics and abnormal neuromuscular behavior • Identify the potential relationship between pain and dysfunction with consideration of the biomechanical interdependency exhibited within the lumbo-pelvic-hip complex • Be able to treat pelvic girdle dysfunction using various manual therapy strategies such as myofascial release, respiratory assist mobilization, joint mobilization, and neuromuscular therapy (i.e. muscle energy, PNF) • Integrate home instruction strategies with manual intervention to facilitate improvement in pelvic girdle function and assist in pain relief • Be stimulated to pursue additional reading, course work or research in the pelvic girdle system

As more research is publicized indicating that the plant-based diet may be capable of preventing or even reversing many of the most dreaded, deadly health conditions - including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers - healthcare providers are increasingly turning to lifestyle medicine as a way to transform their patients’ lives. Attendees of the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference will learn about the scientific links between diet and chronic disease prevention and control, as well as how to promote lasting behavior modifications that will encourage patients to adopt a plant-based diet and other healthy lifestyle changes. The conference will feature an impressive line-up of speakers with expert knowledge of the plant-based diet, including Michael Greger, MD and Doug Lisle, PhD. Dr. Greger is an internationally recognized professional speaker and author of the New York Times instant bestseller, “How Not to Die.” He has lectured extensively on key public health issues, appearing at the Conference on World Affairs, the National Institutes of Health, the International Bird Flu Summit, and many other notable forums. At the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference, he will deliver a presentation entitled, “How Not to Die: The Role of Diet in Preventing, Arresting, and Reversing Our Top 15 Killers." In addition to being a general practitioner specializing in clinical nutrition, Dr. Greger is a founding member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Greger’s latest nutritional research may be found at his site, https://nutritionfacts.org. Doug Lisle, PhD is the founder of Esteem Dynamics, a revolutionary, biological approach to human psychology and wellbeing. Heavily influenced by leading scholars like Richard Dawkins, John Tooby and Leda Cosmides, Esteem Dynamics is the product of Dr. Lisle’s 25 years of clinical experience combined with deep insights into evolutionary psychology. Dr. Lisle is also the author of “The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health and Happiness,” which explores the factors that make humans susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses. He will be lecturing on “The Pleasure Trap” at the Sedona Health and Nutrition Conference. After serving on the research staff at the Department of Veteran Affairs at the National Center for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Dr. Lisle is now the Director of Research for the TrueNorth Health Center and a psychologist for the McDougall Wellness Program, both of which are located in Santa Rosa, Calif.
