Scrape, Tape, Cup & Glide: Restoring Space, Motion, & Slack for Restricted Neural Dynamics of the Upper Quarter 2019
Apr 29 - 30, 2019 | CME 14.00 | USD $479 | Jefferson, Louisiana
Scrape, Tape, Cup & Glide: Restoring Space, Motion, & Slack for Restricted Neural Dynamics of the Upper Quarter is organized by Rehab Education and will be held from Apr 29 - 30, 2019 at Jefferson, Louisiana, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 14 contact hours. Course Description: The concept of restricted neural dynamics is not new, however, its impact on our patients’ daily activities and movement tolerance is often overlooked during the examination and treatment of our patients. This course integrates the basic concept of “test-treat-retest” as a foundation to manage these challenging patients. The basic principle that neural tissue needs space, motion, and slack for optimal healing potential underpins all concepts covered. This upper extremity focused course features motion-based interventions consisting of: • neural flossing • nerve bed/nerve differential gliding • instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) • negative pressure soft tissue mobilization (cupping) • corrective exercises • taping Course Objectives: At the completion of this course you will be able to: • Identify 2 main regions of the brachial plexus • Given a patient scenario in which the patient demonstrates a numb hand, map patients’ symptoms to the brachial plexus • Identify 2 conditions that increase the potential for nerve injury vulnerability in patients with cervical sprain/strain • Identify 2 signs and 4 symptoms of brachial plexalgia • Given a patient with medial/lateral elbow pain, “dead arm” syndrome and SICK scapula syndrome the participant will accurately bias the Brachial Plexus, Radial, Median and Ulnar nerve tissue and nerve bed using novel neural mobility grading scales (0-5) • Given a case scenario for a patient with lateral epicondylagia generate a treatment plan, including goals and prognosis based on exam results • Justify based on evidence how basic treatment to restore space, motion, and slack can be integrated into the overall treatment plan for patients with Thoracic Outlet • Given a patient scenario choose 3 appropriate IASTM treatments to enhance movement and space for movement dysfunctions resulting from restricted neural mobility in a patient with cervical strain • Choose 3 basic negative pressure soft tissue techniques (cupping) over the nerve bed to enhance space and movement for addressing restricted neural dynamics in patients with shoulder sprain/strain • Following the course and given a case scenario the participant will integrate cupping and IASTM strokes in a patient with Brachial Plexalgia (left chest wall & facial pain, numbness of the thumb, ring and small finger) • Choose 2 taping techniques to enhance slack promoting posture correction and inhibition of neuropathic pain for patients with cervical sprain/strain Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
