TP: Taming Pain is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Aug 17 - 18, 2019 at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center, Fountain Valley, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 Contact Hours. Audience: Anyone that is interested in learning how to TREAT pain, not just manage pain, including PT, SPT, PTA, OT, patients, Physicians, Physician Assistants, and other health care professionals are encouraged to attend. Course Purpose: What are your strategies for management of patients whose pain in not resolved with advanced manual therapy interventions? Do you have the knowledge to recognize the signs and symptoms of inflammatory pain symptoms of inflammatory pain symptoms verses mechanical? This lecture course is designed to help clinicians and their patients understand the complex, interactive nature of on-going pain. The participants will learn how each of the body’s systems contributes to the Pain Experience. Further, the learners will learn how to determine which systems are relevant to their own pain. Most importantly, the participants will learn self-treatment techniques to begin the journey of control and recovery. Course Objectives : By the end of the course, the participant will be able to: • differentiate among acute, chronic and sustained pain. • explain how the body’s systems interact to successfully progress from injury and acute pain to recovery. • explain the role of the Nervous System in the development and perpetuation of chronic pain. • develop a treatment plan to rehabilitate the hypersensitivity of the Nervous System present in chronic pain. • differentiate which system(s) and factors are involved in the production of a given patient’ sustained pain, including: Immune System, Gastrointestinal System, Endocrine System, Peripheral Nervous System, Fascial System, coccyx, viscera, Lymphatic System, Musculoskeletal System, nutrition, posture • develop therapeutic interventions to positively impact the identified system(s)’ role in the patient’s sustained pain. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

CFS: CoreFirst Strategies for Optimum Function is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Oct 18 - 20, 2019 at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center, Fountain Valley, California, United States of America. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: CoreFirst Strategies presents a methodical and unique functional assessment and treatment program for patients with dysfunctions of the spine. The CFS approach originated and developed by Vicky Saliba Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, trains the therapist to directly correlate an evaluation of the patient’s base of support, alignment, and Lumbar Protective Mechanism to the patient’s motor activation and strong response. Building on this assessment, the participant is trained in five principles to enhance efficient posture, movement, and the automatic-not volitional-activation of the core stabilizers. These principles serve as a kinesthetic checklist for patients during ADL such as sitting and lifting. To complete this dynamic approach to active functional rehabilitation, the therapist is trained in a progressive functional exercise program which addresses flexibility, coordination, strength, stability, and functional movement patterns. The course includes an extensive manual with over 200 photos of posture, movement, and exercise. Course Objectives: • Become proficient in three IPA Functional Tests which provide immediate objective data to the therapist and the patient as to the efficiency of the patient’s alignment related to function and pain. • Learn principles of acute care, positioning, and CoreFirst® principles of posture and movement which empower a patient to be independent in ADL. • Acquire the understanding and knowledge to design an appropriate and challenging exercise program that meets the individual needs of each patient for activation of the core, strength, endurance, and motor control.
