PNF I: The Functional Approach to Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Jul 19 - 21, 2019 at Methodist Hospital For Surgery, Addison, Texas, 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: To effectively treat as a Functional Manual Therapist®, one must address the interrelationship between the neuromuscular, soft tissue, and articular systems. PNF I offers a dynamic and functional evaluation and treatment approach to this interrelationship based on specific analysis of motor recruitment patterns and Characteristics of Neuromuscular Function. This course progresses from specific shoulder girdle, pelvic girdle, and trunk patterns to weight-bearing postures and movements. Content emphasizes the establishment of efficient motor recruitment patterns for rehabilitation of neurological and orthopedic patients and posts manipulative techniques. The material in this course is directly related to current neurophysiology of muscle function and motor control. Course Objectives: The participant will develop an understanding of the: • normal growth and development principles on which PNF has founded • neurophysiology behind the PNF principles • FMT paradigm of mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control. • application of the FMT paradigm to the practice of PNF. • FMT operational definition of Functional Efficiency and how it applies to the practice of PNF. • attributes and differences between tonic vs phasic contractions and isometric vs maintained isotonic contractions. The participant will develop the: • clinical skills to determine a patient’s neuromuscular ability to initiate functional movements with a proper feed-forward mechanism, and if necessary, select the proper PNF technique to facilitate a CoreFirst contraction. • manual skills to assess the mechanical capacity of the joint and soft tissues associated with PNF patterns and functional positions of hook lying, on-elbows, sitting, and gait. • observation skills to identify inefficiencies in the scapula and pelvic patterns as they relate to functional activities • skills to identify the presence or absence of CoreFirst® strategies in various functional movements and postures and demonstrate the necessary clinical reasoning to determine the proper PNF intervention if a dysfunctional motor strategy is identified. • clinical reasoning necessary to implement a plan of care related to the restoration of efficient mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function, and motor control through the utilization of appropriate principles and techniques of PNF based on the objective and subjective findings related to a patient’s presenting symptoms.
