Neuroplasticity for Children is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Jun 05, 2019 at Embassy Suites by Hilton Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Counselors • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Speech-Language Pathologists • Social Workers • Psychologists • Speech-Language Pathology Assistants • Early Childhood Special Education Teachers • Early Childhood Staff Course Description: Studies show our brains can be rewired to enhance new learning. In some cases, it acts as an adaptive mechanism to compensate for lost function or maximize remaining function in the event of brain injury. As therapists, when we treat the causes and symptoms of these motor delays, we can utilize alternate brain pathways to improve the effects of therapy. Neuroplasticity changes brain connections and hence, changes motor and cognitive functions. From congenital abnormalities to traumatic brain injuries, this course delivers new and exciting ideas on how to detour around damage and incorporate viable nervous system connections. Learn how therapy can change the brain and how neuroplasticity can change the challenges in a child’s development. With Dr. Karen Pryor as your guide, you gain creative and evidence-based approaches to incorporate into a multisensory experience to drive home the importance of diverse and novel activities during treatment sessions. Both high and low tones are discussed in depth. Video case studies will demonstrate changes before and after integrative neuroplasticity treatments. The therapy techniques learned in this one-day course can be easily integrated into the clinic or home the next day. Course Objectives: • Describe the primitive reflexes’ influence on movement patterns. • Identify the multilayer approach using neuroanatomy and brain function. • Evaluate strategies to incorporate techniques into home programs for parents and caregivers. • Recognize the importance of positive treatment sessions and verbal cues. • Analyze the relationship between brain dysfunction and tone abnormalities. • Restate different approaches to changing low and high tone qualities Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

The Diet Revolution: Neuroprotective & Disease-Modifying Effects is organized by CE International and will be held on Jun 10, 2019 at Colorado Springs Marriott, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America. Who Should Attend: • Pharmacists • Nursing Professionals • Dietitians • Physical Therapy Professionals • Occupational Therapy Professionals • Medical Professionals Accreditation: • Nursing Professionals (all nursing professionals - RN, NP, LPN, etc.)- 6 Contact Hours • Pharmacists - 6 Contact Hours • Registered Dietitians and Diet Technicians - 6 Contact Hours • Physical Therapy Professionals - 6 Contact Hours • Clinical Social Work, Marriage & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling - 6 Contact Hours • Occupational Therapy Professionals - 6 Contact Hours Description: An increasing number of data demonstrate the utility of various diets in a variety of metabolic diseases and neurodegenerative disorders (NDD). Neurodegenerative diseases are illnesses that affect the brain, specifically neurons. The most common symptoms caused by these diseases include malfunctions in balance, respiration, movement, reflexes, motor skills, or even in heart beat activity. There are various risk factors that influence the incidence of NDD, these can be genetic, or non-genetic factors. Nutrition is the non-genetic factor that has shown the greatest influence on NDD incidence and development. The common factor in most NDD and metabolic diseases is a state of chronic inflammation, which is greatly influenced by nutrition. This course will explore the scientific data connecting diet and disease. Specific diets covered along with their scientific evidence included: the Ketogenic diet, fasting diet protocols, plant-based diets, the Paleo Diet, the Autoimmune Diet Protocol (AIP), the Wahls protocol, Gluten-free, casein-free diets, and the FODMAP diet. This course can be attended either live onsite, live online or on-demand. Objectives: • Explore the role of diet in preventing and treating autoimmune disease (e.g. Autoimmune diet protocol, Paleo diet, the ketogenic diet, Intermittent fasting protocols). • State the relationship between gluten and autoimmune disease (e.g. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, etc.). • Explore research supporting the role of diet in treating and preventing neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis). • Identify nutrition strategies that could help normalize intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and reduce inflammation linked to metabolic disease and neurodegenerative disorders. • State the role of the ketogenic diet in neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes and heart disease. • List the benefits of the Wahl’s protocol in treating Multiple Sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases. • State the evidence for plant-based diets in treating obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Jun 28, 2019 | CE 7.00 | USD $299 | Colorado Springs, Colorado
Streamlining Your Root Canal Treatments is organized by Ultradent Products, Inc. and will be held on Jun 28, 2019 at Colorado Springs Marriott, Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dentist and Team Members. This CE Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7 CE Credits. Overview: Proper cleaning and shaping of the canal space is a prerequisite for achieving clinical success in endodontics. Studies have shown that the best movement to be applied in endodontic instruments is Roane’s Balanced Force technique. The engine-driven Balanced Force, or asymmetric reciprocating motion, has recently been applied to specifically designed nickel-titanium instruments, reducing the risk of fracture due to the accumulation of metal fatigue, which is the leading limitation of rotary nickel-titanium instruments. Though three times safer than the rotary movement, reciprocation alone has a downside of debris accumulation inside the canal. Objectives: • The benefits and limitations of reciprocation and rotation • The importance of file design and how this aspect can improve the instrumentation results • How to determine the working length electronically • An intuitive 2-file instrumentation technique, taking advantage of the two different kinematics • How to perform a superior cleaning using ultrasonification • The application of MTA repair cement • How to accomplish an effective single-cone obturation technique Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
