PGP: Pelvic Girdle Puzzle is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Oct 12 - 13, 2019 at Long Island University Brooklyn, Brooklyn, New York, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16 Contact Hours. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: This course is a lab-intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy system for the management of the pelvic girdle. Explore the biomechanical and functional impact of the pelvis on the kinetic chain both above and below the pelvis. In the Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) treatment approach, management of the pelvic girdle an essential aspect of patient care for the restoration of efficient mobility, alignment and motor control of the human system. Participants will be instructed to utilize a clinical reasoning framework for examination, evaluation, and treatment planning for the management of the patient with decreased function secondary to neuro-musculoskeletal impairments of the pelvic girdle. The systematic FMT treatment approach allows for seamless transitions between evaluation and treatment of identified impairments as an ongoing process in a session-to-session (reflection-on-action) and moment-to-moment (reflection-in-action) basis. The participants will be guided through the utilization of Functional Mobilization for treatment of mechanical dysfunctions including joints, soft tissues, visceral and neurovascular structures. Functional Mobilization is a dynamic, three-dimensional treatment strategy which utilizes active, resisted and/or passive movements to specifically mobilize mechanical restrictions. FMT is rooted in the principles of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), which is the foundation for the manual handling skills which will be instructed for the management of the neuromuscular function impairments (decreased efficiency of muscular initiation, strength and endurance) and motor control deficits. Additionally, participants will be trained to utilize observation of gait as an essential component of examination/evaluation and re-evaluation. Course Objectives: Participants will develop an understanding of: • The biomechanical and functional relationship of the pelvis to the trunk and extremities. • The 8 specific biomechanical motions of the innominate. • The specific functional and accessory motions of the sacrum in relationship to L5 and in relationship to each innominate. • The specific functional and accessory motions of coccyx, and implications on kinetic chain and whole body function. • Structural and functional goals for treating the pelvic girdle. Participants will develop the hands-on skills to: • Palpate and evaluate the mechanical capacity of the coccyx, sacrum, innominate, L5, hip and surrounding soft tissues, neurovascular structures and viscera. • Assess the neuromuscular function and motor control of the lumbo-pelvic region. • Utilize advanced manual therapy treatment skills of FMT to enhance function of the pelvic girdle. • Integrate immediate neuromuscular re-education and motor control training following treatment of mechanical capacity. Participants will develop the ability to: • Link the information gathered through an objective evaluation with structural and functional deficits observed in the patient to create rational explanations of the impact of identified dysfunctions with patient reported complaints. • Synthesize the information gained through objective and subjective evaluations with the goal of treating towards a more efficient pelvic girdle structure and function to create a realistic prognosis for each patient. • Utilize patient education and novel concepts for home exercise programs to empower patients to help themselves. • Correlate current literature related to treatment of the pelvic girdle. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

CFS: CoreFirst Strategies for Optimum Function is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Nov 22 - 24, 2019 at Long Island University Brooklyn, Brooklyn, New York, United States of America. Audience: PT, PTA, OT, SPT Attendees agree to utilize all skills of evaluation, assessment and treatment learned in this course to the extent allowed under the regulations of their professional practice act. By registering you acknowledge that your attendance does not represent authorization by the IPA, or any of its officers, to utilize any of the material learned which may lie outside of the strict interpretation of your practice act. Course Purpose: CoreFirst® Strategies presents a methodical and unique functional assessment and treatment program for patients with dysfunctions of the spine. The CFS approach originated and developed by Vicky Saliba Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, trains the therapist to directly correlate an evaluation of the patient’s base of support, alignment, and Lumbar Protective Mechanism to the patient’s motor activation and strong response. Building on this assessment, the participant is trained in five principles to enhance efficient posture, movement, and the automatic-not volitional-activation of the core stabilizers. These principles serve as a kinesthetic checklist for patients during ADL such as sitting and lifting. To complete this dynamic approach to active functional rehabilitation, the therapist is trained in a progressive functional exercise program which addresses flexibility, coordination, strength, stability, and functional movement patterns. The course includes an extensive manual with over 200 photos of posture, movement, and exercise. Course Objectives: • Become proficient in three IPA Functional Tests which provide immediate objective data to the therapist and the patient as to the efficiency of the patient’s alignment related to function and pain. • Learn principles of acute care, positioning, and CoreFirst® principles of posture and movement which empower a patient to be independent in ADL. • Acquire the understanding and knowledge to design an appropriate and challenging exercise program that meets the individual needs of each patient for activation of the core, strength, endurance, and motor control. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
