Gait Training An Evidence Based Course Combining Manual Therapy, Exercise and Functional Activities (Oct, 2020)
Oct 24 - 25, 2020 | CME : 15 | USD $450.00 | Freehold, New Jersey
Gait Training An Evidence Based Course Combining Manual Therapy, Exercise and Functional Activities is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Oct 24 - 25, 2020 at CentraState Medical Center Emergency Room, Freehold, New Jersey, United States of America. Accreditation: The CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credit. Course Description: This intermediate level two-day course provides an orthopedic perspective in the evaluation and treatment of the neurologically involved lower extremity. The evidence-based techniques presented in this class have been demonstrated to improve functional movement and gait. Treatment techniques that encompass functional activities, tissue mobilizations and blood flow resistance training are just some of the topics included with this comprehensive approach. The concepts and principles demonstrated in this course enhance both the clinician’s knowledge base and hands-on skills. Clinicians will learn to identify impairments in alignment and prioritize the treatment approach to maximize each session for improved functional outcomes. Extensive lab time enables the clinician to learn how to analyze movement patterns specifically with gait, determine musculoskeletal dysfunctions (including muscle imbalances) and develop a working therapy diagnosis with appropriate therapeutic intervention. Course instruction is enhanced by the extensive group interaction and hands-on practice of the evaluation procedures (with case studies). The treatment approaches that provide soft tissue mobilization, flexibility activities, strengthening exercises, functional activities, and proprioceptive activities are designed to improve gait and mobility in a timely manner. Break out sessions will include video analysis of actual patients to allow the clinician to systematically diagnosis patient dysfunction and develop a progressive functional treatment plan. The techniques learned can be applied to a multitude of pathologies in both the neurologic and orthopedic realm (including, but not exclusive to CVA, SCI, TBI, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, CP, deconditioning, hip pathologies, arthritis). This course assists the clinician in becoming more efficient with making the correct therapy diagnosis, documenting, analyzing, communicating and progressing the patient to a more functional level while optimizing reimbursement. Objectives: • Differentiate appropriate evaluation techniques and develop treatment programs for specific musculoskeletal restrictions in the neurologically involved lower extremity. •Analyze gait abnormalities and prioritize impairments to develop a treatment plan focused on improving function rather than just improving impairments. • Analyze other movement patterns associated with activities contributing to gait (including sit to stand, upper extremity activities, and posture). • Identify which muscles are firing/not firing at the appropriate/inappropriate time during a gait cycle. • Identify muscle imbalances through weakness, length tension disruption and joint hyper/hypomobility. • Design a specific plan of care for each individual patient aimed at the appropriate dysfunction. • Discuss how specific treatments are supported by evidence based research. • Discuss the difference in treatment focused on improving function versus improving impairments. • Demonstrate manual skills to perform soft tissue mobilization (including mobilization with movement and muscle bending), strengthening exercises (including NDT techniques), proprioceptive activities and stretching techniques.

Optimizing Functional Mobility in the Older Adult is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Nov 21 - 22, 2020 at CentraState Medical Center Emergency Room, Freehold, New Jersey, United States of America. This course has been approoved for a maximum of 16.0 contact hours / 1.60 CEUs. Course Description: As the population ages, there is a continual growing need for physical and occupational therapists and other health care providers to develop comprehensive solutions to maximize mobility and achieve positive functional outcomes. This intermediate-level course will utilize the best evidence-based research in examination and treatment techniques for older adults and apply them to results-driven clinical practices. This course will teach clinicians how to perform a comprehensive examination of older adults with orthopedic, neurologic, and cardiopulmonary diagnoses as well as other pathologies with an emphasis on integrating findings into the development of the plan of care. A variety of tests and interventions will be practiced in labs to allow participants the opportunity to practice the concepts discussed during lectures, such as appropriate strength training for older adults and treatment of vestibular disorders. Since vestibular disorders may be missed in older adults, identification and treatment of vestibular impairment is vital to successful outcomes in this population to prevent further injury and to establish a successful path toward functional mobility. This course will also include implications of other diagnoses common to older adults such as diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, hip fracture, and several other diagnoses. Case studies will be used for participants to practice problem solving and clinical decision making in older adults. The information in this course can be adapted for all practice settings including acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing facilities/subacute, outpatient, and home care. This evidence-based course will incorporate current and relevant information to develop an individualized treatment plan to improve functional outcomes in your patients. A comprehensive manual will supplement the didactic and lab portions of the course. Course Objectives: • Identify the effects of aging and pathology on limitations in activities and participation. • Perform a comprehensive examination of older adults selecting appropriate tests and measures based on the individual’s presentation. • Recognize fall risk factors in older adults and develop an appropriate plan of care to address these factors. • Perform an examination of the vestibular system and demonstrate appropriate treatments for BPPV and vestibular hypofunction. • Explain how to incorporate an evidence based interventions into a plan of care for older adults. • Design appropriate exercise prescriptions for older adults with a variety of impairments and comorbidities. • Discuss the effect of medications on older adults and how it impacts rehab progression. • Design a comprehensive treatment plan for older adult patients incorporating all impaired systems, impact of medications, and patient goals.
