S4 - Functional Analysis & Management of Lumbo-Pelvic-Hip Complex is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Dec 01 - 02, 2018 at Chicago, Illinois, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Physical Therapists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 or 1.6 CEUs (includes 1 online hour) or 2 graduate Credits. 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. Prerequisite: S1; Intro S4 Webinar is included with S4 Conference Objectives are : 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. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
