GAIT: Functional Gait: Component Assessment and Treatment is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Mar 22 - 24, 2019 at Landswick Physical Therapy, Inc., Pasadena, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 20 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: Many aspects of function are impeded by motor control problems that are reflected in a patient’s gait and rolling patterns. The skill to observe and then affect a positive impact on a patient’s gait dysfunction is a powerful tool in the total rehabilitation of both orthopedic and neurological patients. Building on the foundational skills learned in other IPA courses,Functional Gait emphasizes component assessment and the governing structural and motor control factors which influence each component. Each gait component is self-evaluated,assessed by two partners, and then treated using PNF, CFS®, and FM treatment strategies. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate through small group discussion monitored by the instructor the ability to identify: • The biomechanical principal which govern gait • The mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control impairments which can alter efficient gait • The functional interrelationship of the body's systems and regions necessary for efficient gait By the end of course, the participant will demonstrate the manual and visual skills necessary to accurately: • Analyze gait dysfunctions in lab partners or on video The participant will develop the manual and observational skills to: • Assess the mechanical impairments contributing to the identified inefficient gait • Assess the neuromuscular CoreFirst strategies necessary to perform efficient gait • Perform appropriate mobilization and re-education treatment to facilitate a more efficient gait pattern By the end of the course, participant will demonstrate, through supervised lab practice sessions, the ability to perform appropriate manual skills of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control treatment to correct any identified gait dysfunctions in lab partners. By the end of the course, the participant will demonstrate, in supervised lab practice sessions the ability to instruct the patient in an appropriate home program. Throughout the course, the participant will participate in guided discussions related to the current evidence for Gait assessment and treatment.

Stroke Rehab - An Integrated Functional Movement Approach is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Apr 13 - 14, 2019 at Huntington Hospital, Pasadena, California, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is for PT, PTA, OT, OTA, AT. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credits. CME : This course is 18.0 contact hours/1.8 ceus for NY, IL, or DC licensed therapists. Conference Description : This course provides a systematic movement re-education treatment approach. Concepts presented will teach you how to utilize the fundamental movement patterns of the neurodevelopmental sequence to view mobility and static/dynamic stability problems in a more isolated setting. You will learn how to identify a patient’s most dysfunctional movement pattern following stroke, or any other movement disorder, and reduce that pattern into its many underlying mobilizing and stabilizing actions and reactions that constitute function. As demonstrated in the labs, movement patterns can be assisted and facilitated, corrected (with manual therapy and prescribed proprioceptively enriched therapeutic exercise), and progressed. After completion of this course, the participant will have the information needed to evaluate and treat movement dysfunction. Participants will leave this course with a safe, progressive and evidence-based approach to allow for strong therapy outcomes regardless of therapy background or treatment setting. Physical and Occupational Therapists and Assistants treat patients and their impairments, not the diagnosis. Understanding the underlying mechanisms of a stroke diagnosis will enhance the therapists ability to determine specific rehab needs of the patient. This course, with applications for patients in all therapy settings, will focus on the movement re-education needs required for basic daily function of the patient from an integrated approach based on neurologic science and orthopedics. This intermediate level course combines lecture and extensive lab time designed for participants to practice motor skills covered in lecture that will immediately enhance a clinician’s ability to treat this population. Historic and modern approaches to stroke rehab such as: motor control theory, PNF, NDT, strength training, forced use paradigm, mobility and gait unloading and training will all be integrated into this movement training approach. Orthopedic concerns of the neurological patient and the hemiplegic shoulder will also be addressed. Conference Objectives are : • Identify how to analyze, correct and progress movement patterns. • Develop and perform a complete evaluation approach linking movement assessment findings to functional patterns. • Discuss evidence-based practice for strength training, forced use, body weight supported therapies and virtual reality and how they relate to the stroke patient population. • Describe the scientific and clinical rationale behind the development of an exercise program for the treatment of functional mobility in the stroke population. • Demonstrate the proper utilization of the fundamental movement patterns of the neurodevelopmental sequence to view mobility and static/dynamic stability problems in a more isolated setting. • Identify a patient’s most dysfunctional movement pattern following stroke, reduce that pattern into its many underlying mobilizing and stabilizing actions and reactions that constitute function. • Describe how neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction can lead to impaired motor control and movement patterns. • Recognize how to utilize neuromuscular inhibition and facilitation techniques and how to sequence them in therapy prescriptions for maximum functional outcomes. • Develop home exercise programs of prescribed fundamental movement patterns to maintain functional results.
