DFA: Dynamic Foot and Ankle is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Apr 13 - 14, 2019 at Encompass Physical Therapy, Annapolis, Maryland, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 Contact Hours. 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: This course is a lab intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system of management for the foot and ankle. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of the anatomical and biomechanical presentation of an efficient foot and ankle which provides for a dynamically stable and mobile base of support. Each participant will explore the biomechanical and functional impact of the foot and ankle on the entire kinetic chain and examine the role of the foot and ankle as an essential component of optimal mobility, alignment, and motor control of the human system. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical impairments of the foot and ankle. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will develop advanced skills of evaluation, differentiation of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions, and implementation of an appropriate plan of care and utilization of Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. The course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, participants will be able to analyze the biomechanical difference between a normal and an efficient foot and ankle in supervised lab practice sessions and instructor guided discussions. Participants will be able to: • verbalize the difference between a “normal” and an “efficient” foot and ankle based on the presented “challenge of normal”. • identify the 6 key structural components of a “compensated supinated” foot. • identify 13 functional characteristics of an efficient vs. inefficient foot. • evaluate their lab partner’s foot and ankle using 14 function based evaluations. • develop the skill to set 10 structural and functional goals for treating the foot and ankle. • perform the appropriate manual skills to evaluate the structures and function of the foot and ankle. • perform effective treatments for the restoration of mobility and function of the foot and ankle. • synthesize the information gained through objective and subjective evaluations to create an appropriate prognosis for a lab partner. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Course Purpose: Under the direction of Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, the participant utilizes dynamic treatment strategies and Functional Movement Patterns (adapted from FeldenkraisTM ATM lessons) to evaluate and treat each region of the body, including viscera. Emphasis is on passive and active associated movements while performing soft & tissue and joint mobilization (Functional MobilizationTM) in non-weight bearing and weight bearing positions. These strategies provide avenues to study and comprehend the interrelationships of the kinetic chain and the effectiveness of enhancing function as a foundation for treating complex orthopedic problems. Cost of the course includes an extensive manual with over 250 pictures of techniques and an IPA plunger. This course presents dynamic Functional MobilizationTM treatment strategies for each region of the body to assist in the management of complex orthopedic dysfunctions. Building on the skills of FM I, these strategies develop from an understanding of the efficient and inefficient interrelationships of the kinetic chain. Course Objectives: • Utilize Functional Movement Patterns (FMP) to observe, trace and isolate soft tissue and articular dysfunctions and associated neuromuscular or motor control dysfunctions. • Develop advanced Functional Mobilization™ soft tissue and joint techniques to effectively treat identified dysfunctions. • Identify appropriate use and modification of FMP’s for home program. • Discuss the clinical and published evidence for the FM II material. • Focus areas are lumbo-pelvic, lower extremity, foot and ankle, rib cage, shoulder and shoulder girdle, head and neck. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

PNF I: The Functional Approach to Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Jul 19 - 21, 2019 at Encompass Physical Therapy, Annapolis, Maryland, 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: To effectively treat as a Functional Manual Therapist®, one must address the interrelationship between the neuromuscular, soft tissue, and articular systems. PNF I offers a dynamic and functional evaluation and treatment approach to this interrelationship based on specific analysis of motor recruitment patterns and Characteristics of Neuromuscular Function. This course progresses from specific shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle, and trunk patterns to weight-bearing postures and movements. Content emphasizes the establishment of efficient motor recruitment patterns for rehabilitation of neurological and orthopedic patients and posts manipulative techniques. The material in this course is directly related to current neurophysiology of muscle function and motor control. Course Objectives: The participant will develop an understanding of the: • normal growth and development principles on which PNF has founded • neurophysiology behind the PNF principles • FMT paradigm of mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control. • application of the FMT paradigm to the practice of PNF. • FMT operational definition of Functional Efficiency and how it applies to the practice of PNF. • attributes and differences between tonic vs phasic contractions and isometric vs maintained isotonic contractions. The participant will develop the: • clinical skills to determine a patient’s neuromuscular ability to initiate functional movements with a proper feed-forward mechanism, and if necessary, select the proper PNF technique to facilitate a CoreFirst contraction. • manual skills to assess the mechanical capacity of the joint and soft tissues associated with PNF patterns and functional positions of hook lying, on-elbows, sitting, and gait. • observation skills to identify inefficiencies in the scapula and pelvic patterns as they relate to functional activities • skills to identify the presence or absence of CoreFirst® strategies in various functional movements and postures and demonstrate the necessary clinical reasoning to determine the proper PNF intervention if a dysfunctional motor strategy is identified. • clinical reasoning necessary to implement a plan of care related to the restoration of efficient mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control through the utilization of appropriate principles and techniques of PNF based on the objective and subjective findings related to a patient’s presenting symptoms.
