Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation in Orthopedic Patients is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Oct 24 - 25, 2020 at WakeMed Raleigh Campus, Raleigh,North Carolina, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is intended for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hourswill be awarded to each participant. All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, ATs & Assistants. Seminar Description: This two-day, evidenced based, laboratory intensive course will focus on teaching a historically useful manual therapy technique, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). The course introduces PNF as a manual therapy and exercise intervention technique to address common pathologies of both upper and lower extremities. The course is intended to provide the clinician with the skill to rehabilitate the patient with a hands-on, integrative approach. This will be accomplished through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and significant lab time. The structured sessions are aimed at emphasizing important concepts in neurophysiology and motor learning to improve neuromuscular control in orthopedic patients. Mastery of these techniques requires a solid foundation in basic anatomy and the pathomechanics of the shoulder and hip. Attendees will learn useful terminology, basic procedures, and techniques. Participants will learn to successfully apply PNF techniques in a manner that each patient-centered session is both therapeutic intervention and assessment or evaluation. The clinician will learn to develop and sequence a dynamic treatment plan incorporating PNF techniques that can be used for conservative and post-operative approaches. Current clinical evidence supports the combination of these treatments when properly performed and prescribed by a skilled clinician. Strategies for documentation and coding will also be covered. Objectives: • Develop an understanding of the PNF concept and the neurophysiology behind the PNF principles • Understand foundational principles of exercise and physiological adaptation. Correctly explain and differentiate motor learning, strength, power, hypertrophy, and endurance • Demonstrate clinical skills to determine a patient’s neuromuscular ability and select appropriate PNF therapy interventions based on understanding of anatomy and pathology in conjunction with patient responses • Perform basic PNF manual therapy techniques to facilitate neuromuscular control and improve patient recovery • Articulate appropriate PNF terms for documentation and CPT coding for charges Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
