S4 - Functional Analysis & Management of Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex - Instructed by Amanda Grant, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, CLT, FAAOMPT (Dec 07 - 08, 2019)
Dec 07 - 08, 2019 | CME 16.00 | USD $495 | San Marcos, California
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 07 - 08, 2019 at San Marcos, Texas, 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
E2 - Extremity Integration by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) (Dec 16 - 18, 2019)
Dec 16 - 18, 2019 | Hours 21.00 | USD $595 | San Marcos, California
E2 - Extremity Integration is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Dec 16 - 18, 2019 at San Marcos, California, United States of America. Hours: 21 or 2.1 CEUs or 2 graduate credits Prerequisite: E1 Upper and Lower Extremity Evaluation and Manipulation Seminars Who Attends: Physical Therapists Description: This three day seminar is carried out in seminar format which includes lecture and lab. The content of this seminar highlights the interrelationships of extremity joint complexes, along with thorax and spinal influences with emphasis on kinetic chain events. Soft tissue and joint techniques for both examination and treatment are practiced in lab sessions. Clinical cases are presented for discussion of management and treatment based upon clinical reasoning skills. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the attendee should be able to: • build on principles, concepts and manipulation techniques learned in E1 and S1 and MF1. • correlate normal and abnormal anatomy and biomechanics to musculoskeletal dysfunctions of upper limb, lower limb and spine as related to kinetic chain events. • integrate symptoms and musculoskeletal findings of selected dysfunctions to upper limb, lower limb, and spinal influences. • perform and modify extremity examination strategies, manipulation techniques and soft tissue techniques to selected dysfunctions of upper limb, lower limb and spine. • utilize clinical reasoning skills to analyze information gathered from examination findings based upon selected patient cases. • observe and speculate for patterns of compensations with selected impairments.
