Myofascial Release and Soft Tissue Techniques to Improve Functional Outcomes and Reduce Pain is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Sep 19 - 20, 2020 at Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Princeton, New Jersey, United States of America. Accreditation: The CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 hours of CME credit. Course Description: The field of fascial research is exploding with fascinating new knowledge about the role of fascia in sensory communication, force transmission, postural stability, cellular health, and much more. Gaining knowledge of this important three-dimensional structure in the body will enhance the clinician’s ability to improve outcomes in many diverse types of patient diagnoses including tendonitis, joint restrictions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and neurological hypertonicity caused by myoplastic hyperstiffness. This two-day, intermediate course provides the clinician with the appropriate assessment tools, palpation skills and manual techniques to improve patient function and reduce pain. There is extensive lab time to practice manual skills using multiple myofascial and soft tissue techniques to reduce guarding, calm the sympathetic pain response, and decrease restrictions of the myofascial structures. Specifically, these myofascial techniques include gross and local hands on skills, neural inhibition techniques, trigger point reduction, and more. The clinician will also learn progressive mobility exercises to enhance the outcomes after restrictive tissue is released. This class provides clinicians with the information and skills needed to successfully treat orthopedic and neurologically involved patients that present with fascial restriction. Clinicians’ will have the tools necessary to provide a comprehensive approach that includes hands on skills, patient education, exercises and functional mobility activities to achieve functional outcomes. The information and skills presented in this class will enhance the therapist’s ability to improve quality of life, functional mobility and decrease pain in a variety of common orthopedic diagnoses including acute injuries, musculoskeletal dysfunction, chronic injuries and post-surgical restrictions as well as affecting certain dysfunctions in neurological diagnoses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and stroke. Objectives: • Describe the multidimensional role of the fascial system to improve outcomes in multiple patient populations. • Identify myofascial restrictions leading to pain and dysfunction using standardized tools and assessment skills. • Discuss the complex role of the neuro-fascial communication system to treat chronic pain disorders.. Palpate restrictive tissue and structural tissue release. • Perform techniques gentle enough to treat highly sensitized patients while still gaining mobility and function. • Perform myofascial techniques for the following diagnoses: plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, total knee replacements, arthritis pain, IT band restrictions, elbow tendinitis, carpal tunnel, headaches and TMJ, Fibro¬myalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, post surgical scarring and cording. • Perform specific myofascial techniques to improve function and decrease pain for the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions, shoulder girdle, ribs, pelvic region, hip, upper and lower extremities.. • Perform techniques that assist with the functional mobility of patients with a neurological impairment such as stroke, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. • Identify the type of myofascial techniques to be used to decrease stiffness from neurological hypertonicity and rigidity that occurs in neurological diseases such as stroke, Parkinson’s, and MS. • Develop progressive rehab programs that include patient education, self-care skills, myofascial techniques and progressive exercises to maintain gains and improve overall function.

Restoring Synergy - Management of Complex Vestibular Dysfunction is organized by Healthclick and will be held from Oct 03 - 04, 2020 at Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Princeton, New Jersey, United States of America. This course has been approoved for a maximum of 15 contact hours / 15 ccu’s / 1.5 CEU’s Course Description: This two-day advanced course is designed for physical therapists and occupational therapists, who have prior experience in vestibular rehabilitation and are seeking to refine their clinical evaluation and treatment skills beyond the basics. Therapists who are comfortable with their fundamental skills will find this course helpful at adding more treatment options to successfully treat the complex dizzy patient. Patient diagnoses discussed will include cervicogenic dizziness, atypical BPPV, Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD), Vestiublar migraine, Acoustic schwannoma, superior canal dehiscence and concussion. Focus will be placed on case study applications with careful analysis of history, diagnostic clinical findings and classification of dysfunctions to allow optimal customized treatment protocols. Clinical skills to be taught will include fistula screening, cervicogenic screening, BPPV treatments beyond the posterior canal (anterior/ horizontal canals), acoustic neuroma management including exposure to facial rehabilitation techniques, migraine screening and treatments, and identification/management of PPPD. All testing and treatment protocols presented will be evidence-based and clinically relevant to more effectively manage the dizzy patient. Lectures will intersperse the refining of clinical testing protocols with specific intervention strategies for a wide range of diagnoses. Instruction will be provided via lecture, video, lab, detailed demonstrations, small group discussion and case studies. Each participant will receive a comprehensive manual that will include sample documentation. Course Objectives: • Perform canalith repositioning maneuvers to treat canalathiasis and cuplulothiasis for all semicircular canals. • Recognize positional vertigo that has central etiology. • Identify psychological problems that can affect the management of vestibular problems and learn how to modify treatment interventions, plans and goals. • Recognize the role of Migraine as both primary (causing of distinct vertigious episodes) and secondary (traditional migraines leading to more persistent motion intolerance)contributor to dizziness and it’s impact on rehabilitation. • Identify appropriate patients for rehabilitation and appropriate referrals to other medical practitioners. • Perform a comprehensive oculomotor exam and interpret findings for clinical management of vestibular dysfunction. • Develop improved management skills for patients with stable peripheral vestibular hypofunction including basic facial rehabilitation, expected outcomes, and treatment progressions. • Identify the clinical presentation of patients with superior canal dehiscence (fistula) and current management strategies.
