KJD: Knee Junction Dilemma (KJD) is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Sep 14 - 15, 2019 at P T Pro, Redmond, Washington, 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 of management for the knee. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of anatomical and biomechanical presentation of efficient knee function, and the interdependence between knee function and healthy motions of the foot/ankle and the hip. With the recognition that the knee is greatly influenced by the motions of the entire lower extremity, the participants will be guided through functional evaluations and assessments to identify key dysfunctions of the lower extremity to better guide interventions aimed at enhancing knee function. The participants will first be guided through select interventions for the foot and ankle and the hip prior to systematically working through an extensive series of direct treatments to the knee and surrounding structures, all with a focus on restoring a more optimal state of function to the lower extremity. Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function and motor control impairments of the knee. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will implement an appropriate plan of care, and utilize Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. This course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

FM II: Functional Mobilization II is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Nov 14 - 17, 2019 at P T Pro, Redmond, Washington, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 31 Contact Hours. Audience: PTA, PT, 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: Under the direction of Gregory S. Johnson, PT, FFFMT, FAAOMPT, the participant utilizes dynamic treatment strategies and Functional Movement Patterns (adapted from FeldenkraisTM ATM lessons) to evaluate and treat each region of the body, including viscera. Emphasis is on passive and active associated movements while performing soft & tissue and joint mobilization (Functional MobilizationTM) in non-weight bearing and weight bearing positions. These strategies provide avenues to study and comprehend the interrelationships of the kinetic chain and the effectiveness of enhancing function as a foundation for treating complex orthopedic problems. Cost of the course includes an extensive manual with over 250 pictures of techniques and an IPA plunger. This course presents dynamic Functional MobilizationTM treatment strategies for each region of the body to assist in the management of complex orthopedic dysfunctions. Building on the skills of FM I, these strategies develop from an understanding of the efficient and inefficient interrelationships of the kinetic chain. Course Objectives: • Utilize Functional Movement Patterns (FMP) to observe, trace and isolate soft tissue and articular dysfunctions and associated neuromuscular or motor control dysfunctions. • Develop advanced Functional Mobilization™ soft tissue and joint techniques to effectively treat identified dysfunctions. • Identify appropriate use and modification of FMP’s for home program. • Discuss the clinical and published evidence for the FM II material. • Focus areas are lumbo-pelvic, lower extremity, foot and ankle, rib cage, shoulder and shoulder girdle, head and neck. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
