At least 1/3 of the people we treat are dealing with this condition, yet most of us are ill-prepared to address this with skill and expertise. The CDC recently published recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain, specifically highlighting behavioral treatment as an approach that should be tried before opioids are prescribed. They are witnessing a devastating public health crisis that is ruining individual’s lives, tearing up families, and ripping through communities. They need to arm ourselves with the skills needed to offer our clients evidence-based behavioral interventions that will help them live healthy and productive lives. Come to this interactive and cutting-edge training and learn creative tools and techniques to transform your practice. Learn powerful mindfulness interventions and motivational interviewing techniques to move your clients toward behavior change. Master the four pain-changing CBT tools. You will leave with the skills and confidence to provide practical and life-changing help to help people move out of chronic pain and into active, healthy, and meaningful lives. Objectives: • Describe how the emotional aspect of client’s pain can be more problematic than the physical aspect. • Specify the differences in risks of opioid medications use in men, women and the elderly and the related treatment implications. • Assess the psychological, physical, social, and behavioral factors that contribute to chronic pain and articulate their treatment implications. • Implement motivational interviewing techniques to motivate clients toward behavioral change that reduce the symptoms of chronic pain. • Summarize the CDC recommendations for the treatment of chronic pain and communicate how that impacts clinical treatment. • Utilize mindfulness-based strategies to decrease symptoms of chronic pain in clients.

Treatment of Common Extremity Dysfunction through Mobilization is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Jun 27 - 28, 2020 at Traverse City, Michigan, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 16 continuing education hours. Course Description: There are few classes available where you will learn how to treat so many common extremity dysfunctions with so much success. This is a class that will change how you look at common extremity diagnoses and will help you to start treating differently on Monday morning. The focus of the class is using joint mobilization to normalize the stress on the tissues around a joint; immediately decreasing the stress on the tissues and secondary pain that this creates. This will take your understanding of extremity mobilization far beyond what you learned in school. As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Accurately explain the rationale for performing joint mobilization and its specific physiological effects • Explain and correctly demonstrate grading, oscillation techniques and sustained-hold techniques of joint mobilizations • Accurately identify the joint surface anatomy of each joint discussed in this course. • Accurately explain the application of the joint surface anatomy to the mechanics of each joint discussed in this course • Demonstrate proper extremity mobilization technique, hand placement, and body mechanics during lab scenarios Topics Covered: • Overview of surface structure and its effect on mobilization • Introduction and review of conservative and aggressive mobilization techniques with emphasis on functional application • Introduction and review of dynamic mobilization techniques • The shoulder / scapula • The elbow • The wrist and hand • The hip • The knee • The ankle and foot • Application to specific clinical situations
