This course is 18 contact hours/1.8 ceu’s for therapists licensed in Illinois, New York, or the District of Columbia. Course Description: This intermediate level 2-day course provides an orthopedic perspective in the evaluation and treatment of the neurologically involved lower extremity with the use of evidence based practice. This course will provide studies that support common theories and treatments involved with the treatment of the lower extremity with a focus on function and gait. The concepts and principles demonstrated in this course enhance both the clinician’s knowledge base and hands-on skills. Clinicians will learn to not only identify impairments in alignment, but prioritize which impairment is affecting function. They will analyze movement patterns specifically with gait, determine musculoskeletal dysfunctions (including muscle imbalances) and develop a working therapy diagnosis with appropriate therapeutic intervention. Course instruction is enhanced by extensive group interaction and hands-on practice of the evaluation procedures (with case studies). Treatment approaches are aimed at soft tissue mobilization, flexibility activities, strengthening exercises and proprioceptive activities that will improve gait and mobility with patients. Break out sessions will include video analysis of actual patients to allow the clinician to systematically diagnosis patient dysfunction and develop a progessive functional treatment plan. Course Objectives: • Differentiate appropriate evaluation techniques and develop treatment programs for specific musculoskeletal restrictions in the neurologically involved lower extremity. • Analyze gait abnormalities and prioritize impairments to develop a treatment plan focused on improving function rather than just improving impairments. • Identify which muscles are firing/not firing at the appropriate/inappropriate time during a gait cycle. • Identify muscle imbalances through weakness, length tension disruption and joint hyper/hypomobility. • Design a specific plan of care for each individual patient aimed at the appropriate dysfunction. • Discuss how specific treatments are supported by evidence based research. • Discuss the difference in treatment focused on improving function versus improving impairments. • Demonstrate manual skills to perform soft tissue mobilization (including mobilization with movement and muscle bending), strengthening exercises (including NDT techniques), proprioceptive activities and stretching techniques. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Treatment Planning and Functional Occlusion Course is organized by Kois Center, LLC and will be held during May 06 - 10, 2019 at Kois Center, LLC, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dentists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 46.50 CE Credits. Course Description : The move from single tooth dentistry to comprehensive care requires a great understanding of risk factors and the ability to manage them effectively. The comprehensive examination - the initial patient engagement-focuses the clinician and patient on the variables most likely to ensure a predictable and excellent outcome. The comprehensive examination will be carefully examined to help you understand it’s most diagnostically useful elements, including an insightful look at the medical and dental history, how to better account for patient’s agendas and expectations, intelligent use of radiographic and photographic documentation, and periodontal, biomechanical, functional and dentofacial presentations. These keys to decision-making set the stage for both the immediate issues and a more long-term focus on predictable treatment outcomes. Understanding and managing functional occlusion is essential to the long-term stability of restorative dentistry. Successful occlusal management must incorporate a range of important considerations, from force management to laboratory and articulator management, to patient psychology, neurology and pharmacology. With the myriad of opinions and approaches that exist within the dental profession, managing occlusion can be a daunting responsibility. Conference Objectives are : • Learn how to incorporate a comprehensive examination and systematic treatment planning into your patient care. • Learn why Dr. Kois’ treatment planning system and simplified diagnostic opinion can build your knowledge base dramatically and increase confidence in your ability. • Learn how to recognize, assess and account for risk using a protocol that evaluates periodontal, biomechanical, functional and dentofacial issues. • Learn how to transfer the four diagnostic parameters into treatment plans and sequences that will minimize risk and maximize long-term success. • Learn how to engage the patient in understanding their condition so they may participate more fully in their own care. • Gain a clear understanding of Maximum Intercuspal Position, Centric Relation and Centric Occlusion. • Learn to ask key questions related to Occlusion in the Dental History form and how to interpret the answers. • Learn a classification and risk assessment system of normal and abnormal attrition of teeth, including: Acceptable Function, Frictional Chewing Pattern, Constricted Chewing Pattern, Occlusal Dysfunction, Parafunction, and Neurological Disorder. • Learn how and when to use the Kois Deprogrammer and other centric relation recording devices. You will work with your fellow participants to fabricate, deliver and experience your own Kois Deprogrammer. • Learn how to mount models on the Panadent articulator using the Kois Dento-Facial Analyzer and to incorporate improved refinements on traditional methods. • Understand a new, simplified terminology for occlusal management: The “Three P’s”- Position, Place and Pathway. • Understand that, as a result of insight into the way humans chew, the concept of Anterior Guidance is no longer valid. • Be prepared to confidently implement the skills and concepts for predictable management of patients immediately following the course.
