Building Better Balance Course is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Jan 18 - 19, 2020 at Trenton, New Jersey, United States of America. Accreditation: This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course. Course Description: This course is a practical and evidence-based approach to balance dysfunction for the adult population. Course material will include an overview of how the sensory systems (somatosensory, vestibular, visual, and auditory) and contributing elements of the central nervous system relate to balance dysfunction. Clinicians will develop an understanding of the way sensory input is coordinated and implemented to achieve and maintain postural control. This class will allow participants to utilize relevant information from each system to apply effective manual therapy techniques and choose relevant therapeutic exercise to create a comprehensive balance training program for their patients. Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Correctly perform 12 relevant manual therapy techniques which may imporve postural control or address impairments associated with balance dysfunction. • Verbally identify signs and symptoms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. • Correctly perform the Dix Hallpike test and the Canlith Repositioning Maneuver to address posterior/anterior semicircular canal dysfunction. • Correctly perform the Supine-Roll test and the Appiani Treatment to address horizontal semicircular canal dysfunction. • Correctly perform five tai chi forms or exercises. • Correctly perform at least 20 exercises which may promote the development of strength, power, flexibility, and balance. • Develop a comprehensive balance rehabilitation regimen. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Comprehensive Treatment of the Shoulder is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Sep 12 - 13, 2020 at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital at Hamilton, Trenton, New Jersey, United States of America. Course Description: This course shows the clinician an entirely new and unique way to treat the shoulder girdle complex. It focuses on the concept of hypo-hyper compensation. While symptoms in the shoulder are commonly in the glenohumeral joint, the driver of the symptoms is commonly elsewhere in the shoulder girdle complex. The class incorporates joint mobilization in ways not often shown along with myofascial release, taping techniques and a fresh way to look at muscle re-education and strengthening of the shoulder. 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 describe anatomical structures covered in the manual and their application to shoulder joint complex mechanics, shoulder movement and shoulder dysfunction. • Accurately describe the treatment concepts for shoulder joint mobilizations and myofascial release of the shoulder as discussed in the manual. • State the 5 treatment principles for shoulder taping. • Independently discuss strengthening and movement re-education. • Demonstrate each of the 8 joint mobilizations, 5 taping techniques, and 7 myofascial release techniques as shown in the course manual with proficiency and skill. Topics Covered: • Introduction to a comprehensive approach to treatment of the shoulder • Overview of anatomy of the shoulder complex and its effect on mobs, MFR, etc • Introduction and review of the concepts of functional joint mobilization, MFR, joint taping and muscular re-education • Mobilization: S-C joint, A-C joint, scap-thor joint, G-H joint • MFR: Crossed-hand techniques, extremity release techniques, cervical-thoracic releases, scar releases • Taping: posterior humeral head relocation, MDI stabilization, UT inhibition, LT facilitation, A-C joint stabilization • Muscular re-education of the shoulder complex • Application to specific clinical situations Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
