Approved Provider Conference Description: This two-day course provides participants with skills and strategies to address the complex problems of balance dysfunction and falls in geriatric and neurologic clients. Participants will further develop their skills in identifying individuals at risk for falls and using clinical examination to identify key components causing balance dysfunction and develop interventions. Utilization of functional outcome measures as a tool for creating effective balance and fall prevention programs will be emphasized. Evidence-based treatment strategies provide participants with a variety of skills to address different aspects of balance dysfunction across functional levels. Assessment procedures and treatment techniques will be demonstrated and reinforced with hands on practice time and case studies to allow for integration of the material. Objectives: • Identify factors that contribute to balance dysfunction and falls • Use comprehensive examination strategies to assess the multiple dimensions of balance, mobility, and fall risk • Identify appropriate standardized balance, mobility and fall risk assessment measures based on client functional level • Identify effective treatments to improve balance and mobility and reduce fall risk • Develop a comprehensive balance training and fall risk reduction program for clients with balance dysfunction Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Approved Provider Conference Description: Neck pain leads to significant disability and limits functional abilities for patients at all levels. Treatment approaches can often be confusing due to dogmatic classification systems, which can be overly complicated and difficult to apply in a clinically meaningful way. However, patients with regional disorders often present with similar clinical presentations. These clinical presentations can often guide clinicians towards the best treatment options. This course is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs the busy clinician. Treatment approaches are organized based on categories that are consistent with how patients that report neck pain are likely to present. Clinical presentations such as chronic neck pain, radiculopathy, traumatic onset, asymmetric movements, headache or myofascial pain are common in clinical practice. This course will provide treatment options in a multimodal context that are grouped to address the most common clinical presentations. Finally, treatment approaches are organized in a logical way providing examples of how the treatments could be integrated. Objectives: • Identify relevant clinical cervicothoracic anatomy to facilitate evaluation and treatment of patients with neck pain. • Identify the most common clinical presentations associated with the cervicothoracic pain. • Identify examination findings associated with the most common cervicothoracic pain clinical presentations. • Identify treatment progressions based on clinical presentation and how to progress/regress treatment. • Demonstrate treatment procedures for a given clinical presentation. • Identify how treatment pathways may be altered for unique clinical situations in those with cervicothoracic pain.
