CFS: CoreFirst Strategies for Optimum Function is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Sep 27 - 29, 2019 at Body Gears Physical Therapy (Oak Brook), Oak Brook, Illinois, United States of America. 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: CoreFirst® Strategies presents a methodical and unique functional assessment and treatment program for patients with dysfunctions of the spine. The CFS approach, originated and developed by Vicky Saliba Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, trains the therapist to directly correlate an evaluation of the patient’s base of support, alignment, and Lumbar Protective Mechanism to the patient’s motor activation and strength response. Building on this assessment, the participant is trained in five principles to enhance efficient posture, movement, and the automatic-not volitional-activation of the core stabilizers. These principles serve as a kinesthetic checklist for patients during ADL such as sitting and lifting. To complete this dynamic approach to active functional rehabilitation, the therapist is trained in a progressive functional exercise program which addresses flexibility, coordination, strength, stability, and functional movement patterns. The course includes an extensive manual with over 200 photos of posture, movement, and exercise. Course Objectives: • Become proficient in three IPA Functional Tests which provide immediate objective data to the therapist and the patient as to the efficiency of the patient’s alignment related to function and pain. • Learn principles of acute care, positioning, and CoreFirst® principles of posture and movement which empower a patient to be independent in ADL • Acquire the understanding and knowledge to design an appropriate and challenging exercise program that meets the individual needs of each patient for activation of the core, strength, endurance, and motor control. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
Oct 11, 2019 | CE 7.00 | USD $299 | Oak Brook, Illinois
Contemporary Endodontics Starting Today Course is organized by Ultradent Products, Inc. and will be held on Oct 11, 2019 at Le Meridien Chicago - Oakbrook Center, Oak Brook, Illinois, 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 Hours. 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. The main goal of this comprehensive hands-on course is to take the attendee through all the aspects needed to take the practice to the next level by utilizing a simple and efficient endodontic technique, presenting a new instrumentation system based on the safety of reciprocation allied to the efficiency of rotary movement. In a few hours, the attendee will gain practical skills that can be immediately incorporated into the office. Objectives: • Determine the benefits and limitations of reciprocation and rotation • Comprehend the importance of file design and how this aspect can improve instrumentation results • Determine the working length electronically • Master an intuitive 2-file instrumentation technique, taking advantage of the two different kinematics • Perform an outstanding cleaning using ultrasonification • Understand the application of MTA repair cement • Accomplish an effective single-cone obturation technique Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
