KSC: Kinetic Shoulder Complex is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from May 18 - 19, 2019 at Lafayette Physical Therapy, Lafayette, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 Contact Hours. 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: This course is a lab-intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system that will train the participants in the management of the Shoulder region. Participants will learn to treat and assess the Thoracic Girdle, Shoulder Girdle, and Intrinsic Motions of the Glenhumoral Joint. Course Objectives: By the end of the course the participant will; 1) Demonstrate through small group discussion, monitored by the instructor, the ability to list: • The underlying principles of a functional shoulder evaluation. • The biomechanical principles which govern shoulder function. • The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient shoulder function. • The functional interrelationship of the body’s systems and regions necessary for efficient shoulder function. 2) Correctly utilize the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately: • Evaluate the functional capacity of the shoulder region. • Identify the primary impairments which are limiting functional capacity. 3) Perform the manual, observational and problem solving skills to: • Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified limitations of shoulder functional capacity. • Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary for efficient shoulder actions. • Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate enhanced shoulder function. 4) Identify through the appropriate manual skills the mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments and to design and implement a treatment program to restore mobility and functional capacity to the following structures; • First and second rib • Upper Thoracic Spine • Shoulder Girdle • Clavicle • Glenohumeral intrinsic motions • Glenohumeral End of Range motions Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

TP: Taming Pain is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Oct 05 - 06, 2019 at Lafayette Physical Therapy, Lafayette, 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.
