Course Description: Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a Powerful Tool for the Rehabilitation and Fitness Professional. With Over 160 Peer-reviewed Articles in the Scientific Literature the Efficacy Can Not Be Denied. By Applying a Tourniquetto Exercising Limbs You Can Improve Strength, Hypertrophy and Endurance Changes While Using a Very Light Load Within a Small Space Like an Athletic Training Room or Small Treatment Room. What is the buzz all about surrounding blood flow restriction training (BFR)? You should be asking yourself that as a health professional. With almost 200 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature the efficacy and safety cannot be denied. By applying a pneumatic tourniquet to exercising limbs you can: • Increase strength • Increase hypertrophy • Increase VO2 Max BFR is the act of safely restricting venous blood flow from a working muscle, but allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle. This is done primarily with low intensity resistance training. Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased. So what does this mean for you the health professional? • Drastically improve your patients' post-surgical recovery time • Treat muscle atrophy in both acute and chronic pain patients • Use as accessory work into your client programming for less stress on joints and tendons • Increase your endurance athlete’s VO2 Max with as little as 2x/week BFR training • Separate yourself from other clinicians by performing the latest, evidenced-based rehab/exercise program This course will cover: • The wide range of benefits of BFR training • Contraindications to BFR and when and where it should be applied • How to safely screen and assess your patient/client prior to BFR • How to safely apply BFR cuffs for the upper and lower extremity • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athletic performance training • Develop and devise a rehab program for your patients and clients Registration Fee: Licensed Provider course: $1,650.00 (Save $249) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) Student Course: $1,500.00 (Save $399) - (Course + Smart Cuff Clinical Set) Course Objectives: By the end of the course, attendees will be able to: • Discuss the benefits of blood flow restriction (BFR) training • Discuss Indications and Contraindications of BFR Training • Demonstrate safe and effective placement of BFR cuffs • Compare and contrast different uses of BFR from bed ridden to athletic performance training • Critically Analyze the utility of BFR in the rehabilitation setting • Develop and devise a training program for a potential patient or client

The Shoulder Complex is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Nov 14 - 15, 2020 at ohnston-Willis Hospital Emergency Room, Richmond, Virginia, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hours will be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATs & Assistants. Description: This two day hands on intensive seminar is designed to develop clinical assessment and treatment skills in advanced concepts of pain management and dysfunction in the upper quadrant. This course will combine an efficient examination process to effectively differentiate between musculoskeletal and neurological sources of pain in order to identify and sequence a custom treatment plan tailored to the dysfunction. Hands on lab sessions will further facilitate proper examination and treatment interventions involving evidence based special testing, neuromobilization, manual therapy, orthotic interventions and exercise prescription. Finally, case scenarios will be incorporated to pair clinical reasoning to situations that are encountered in the clinical setting. The purpose of this seminar is to allow the clinician to move from protocol derived treatment to professional assessment and treatment of the nervous system and the interfacing musculoskeletal system. The emphasis is on creative solutions to difficult problems by integrating neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and kinesiological principles creating a fresh approach to difficult patient problems resulting in improved functional outcomes and patient satisfaction. Objectives: • Identify complex neurophysiological sources of pain and distinguish between acute, chronic, referred and neuropathic pain conditions • Demonstrate an effective Upper Quadrant Screening that will locate proximal pain generators. • Demonstrate soft tissue and joint mobilizations, exercise prescription and activity adaption germane to resolving issues of the thoracic outlet. • Identify neuraldynamic theory as applied to the integration of nerve assessment and intervention designed to resolve difficult pain issues. The participant will move beyond “nerve gliding” to understanding mechanical interface dysfunctions, neural tension and transverse sliding disorders. • Identify rehabilitation strategies for upper quadrant pain conditions that considers the client’s cultural, social and environmental context enabling the individual client to return to maximum functional independence.

Splinting the Hand, Wrist, and Elbow is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Nov 14 - 15, 2020 at First Choice Medical Group Physical Therapy, Indian Harbor Beach, Melbourne, Florida, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hourswill be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATs & Assistants. Description: The art of custom splinting is an often frustrating and challenging skill to master. Invariably we find our best efforts in a pile of very expensive and awkward to handle mass of materials leaving both our patients and ourselves baffled by the outcome. Taking control of the materials through understanding their properties, characteristics and “feel”, along with a strong foundation of upper extremity biomechanics and surface anatomy can quickly turn the tables in your favor. Holding true to the title, Barry has created a remarkable formula for mastering splint fabrication in an introductory environment that incorporates ample opportunity to both observe and fabricate custom splinting, all the while, sharing the dos and don’ts that can only come from 20 years of trial and error. A fun, relaxed and non-intimidating workshop developed to replace frustrated and baffled with enlightened and confident. Diagnosis and conditions covered in this workshop include fractures, arthritis, contractures, CTDs and wounds. Emphasis is placed on replicating the actual patient environment. Course handouts and labs are designed to allow immediate clinical application of splinting techniques. Objectives: • Identify the characteristics, components and “feel” of splinting materials • Demonstrate and Identify the preparation and tools needed for successful splinting. • Successfully complete the fabrication of finger, hand, wrist and forearm based splints • Identify the biomechanical and anatomical features of splint design. • Identify the indications and contraindications for splinting the upper extremity involving contractures, arthritis and CTDs • Identify the clinical guidelines for splinting including patient evaluation, education and safety
