Manual Therapy and Functional Exercise for the Shoulder Complex is organized by Therapy Network Seminars (TNS) and will be held from Oct 17 - 18, 2020 at TriStar Summit Medical Center, Hermitage, Tennessee, United States of America. Target Audience: This is an intermediate level workshop for PTs, PTAs, OTs, and ATs Educational Credit: A certificate of attendance for 15 Contact Hours will 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: Shoulder pain is extremely prevalent in the general population, being ranked as the third most common musculoskeletal complaint. This two-day hands on seminar will present a comprehensive overview of the structural and biomechanical basis of shoulder function and its relationship to the entire upper extremity. Improve your outcomes in the clinic or training room by examining the best evidence-based manual techniques and functional exercises for conservative and post-op management of common shoulder conditions. Common pathologies, progressive non-operative and post-operative treatment involving impingement, instability, rotator cuff pathologies/tears, adhesive capsulitis, arthroplasties, and thoracic outlet syndrome will be covered with strong reference to their impact on function. Techniques covered will include joint and soft tissue mobilizations, kinetic chain strengthening, taping strategies, plyometric and athletic shoulder exercises and more. This seminar is designed to be eclectic in its delivery to best suit the needs of the busy clinician. The hands on course content will be grounded in evidence based treatment strategies and supported with pertinent case studies. The APP Oncology Summit offers a unique opportunity for APPs from various healthcare teams in the community to collaborate, learn from each other and national faculty, and share best practices on a range of issues related to the care of cancer patients. Objectives: • Identify relevant functional anatomy and biomechanics that directly relates to addressing the most common shoulder complex disorders. • Identify current updates on treatment strategies for common shoulder complex diagnoses. • Demonstrate manual therapy techniques addressing joint and soft tissue limitations that are appropriate for the clinical presentation of each patient. • Demonstrate application of general principles of functional exercise,stretching and taping for mobility and stability appropriate for the clinical presentation of each patient. • Identify precautions & rehabilitation considerations following common surgical procedures of the shoulder complex. • Demonstrate impairment specific functional exercise and manual therapy, properly choosing treatment techniques relative to the specific diagnoses. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

All Therapy Network Seminars are pre‐approved for CEUs in the state where the course is conducted when required for PT, OT, & Assistants. Seminar Description: This course will provide participants with essential tools for clinical examination and intervention of persons following a stroke, across the continuum of care. Common impairments, activity restrictions, and participation limitations will be discussed. Evidence based interventions specific to the rehabilitation and recovery of basic mobility following stroke will be presented. Participants will have opportunities to see and work through examples and practice application of information through lecture and hands on labs. Objectives: • Identify the concepts of neuroplasticity, recovery versus compensation, and motor learning/motor control as it relates to acute stroke rehabilitation. • Identify research evidence on best practice in acute stroke rehabilitation, as well as rehab in the subacute and chronic phases of stroke. • Identify and perform specific clinical examination of posture/alignment in supine and sitting, balance, gait, and functional mobility. • Identify common postural abnormalities and movement disorders following stroke. • Identify and practice treatment strategies and handling skills to facilitate improved alignment in supine, and improved, upright posture in sitting and standing. • Demonstrate concepts of normal movement and handling skills into functional mobility. • Identify general precautions and handling strategies for the hemiplegic upper extremity. • Demonstrate treatment strategies /handling techniques to promote increased and prevention of learned non-use of the affected side in persons with hemiplegia. • Identify and demonstrate the common gait deviations and causative impairments present following stroke. • Identify the evidence regarding gait recovery following stroke. • Apply knowledge of gait impairments and deviations to create the appropriate interventions, and/or assistive device and orthotic prescription. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
