2-Day: Movement Specialist Certification is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held from Apr 30 - May 01, 2020 at Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, Brookfield, Wisconsin, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.0 contact hours or 1.20 CEUs / 12.0 clock hours. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Athletic Trainers • Chiropractors • Exercise Physiologists • Personal Trainers Description: To improve your care of patients with movement dysfunction patterns, you need better screening tools so you can treat faster and more effectively. In this course, you’ll streamline your approach by learning a simple yet powerful 3 “Movement Pillar” screening system. Using this method, you’ll be able to determine if the dysfunction is primarily a mobility, stability, or neurological deficit – which means you’ll improve your treatment of movement dysfunctional patterns and enhance performance. This multi-faceted toolbox will be used to tackle an evidence-informed, brain-based, joint-by-joint approach to movement and functional rehabilitation/performance. Throughout the hands-on course, you will utilize a variety of tools in the examination and correction of movement patterns including: • Digital motion analysis technology • Manipulation tools: IASTM, myofascial c ups, kinesiology tapes • Tools for clinic or home exercise programs: mobility balls, exercise bands, foam rollers The primary goal of this certification course is to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to properly screen movement and improve client outcomes. With the many factors that contribute to human movement, you know that there is no ”one size fits all” approach to exercise prescription. Join us to learn this all-encompassing approach to breaking down the movement patterns and improve your client outcomes immediately. Objectives: Day 1 • Identify the role of neuromuscular movement assessment in conscious movement. • Assess conscious (cortical) and unconscious (cerebellar) proprioception testing for the new patient/clients as it relates to human movement. • Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions – neural vs. somatic restrictions (brain vs. tissue) in conscious movement. • Integrate the “3 Movement Pillars” and how they relate to conscious human movement control and performance (brain (neurological/psychological), tissue, mechanical). • Evaluate movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in fundamental movements (e.g. squatting). • Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers and mobility balls for limitations in conscious movement. • Develop and appraise conscious movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions. • Integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture conscious human movement. Day 2 • Examine the role of neuromuscular movement assessment in automatic movement pattern. • Assess automatic/unconscious awareness of human movement (breathing and gait) by screening the balance and coordination systems. • Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions – neural vs. somatic restrictions (brain vs. tissue) during automatic movement patterns. • Integrate the “3 Movement Pillars” and how they relate to automatic human movement and performance (brain (neurological/psychological), tissue, mechanical). • Demonstrate movement assessments that identify the ability to associate and dissociate segments of the body as they relate to gait/breathing movement patterns. • Apply, practice and employ corrective strategies that involve the ability to associate (integrate) and dissociate (mobilize) different segments of the body. • Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers and mobility balls for limitations in automatic movement pattern. • Develop and appraise automatic movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions. • Introduce and integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture automatic human movement. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
Stroke Rehabilitation: Best Practices for Rapid Functional Gains and Improved Outcomes (May 08, 2020)
May 08, 2020 | USD $249.99 | Brookfield, Wisconsin
Stroke Rehabilitation: Best Practices for Rapid Functional Gains and Improved Outcomes is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 08, 2020 at Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, Brookfield, Wisconsin, United States of America. Target Audience: • Physical Therapists • Physical Therapist Assistants • Occupational Therapists • Occupational Therapy Assistants • Therapy Directors • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Physician Assistants Course Description: Working with stroke patients is deeply meaningful and incredibly rewarding. And you strive to help each patient who’s counting on you to facilitate improvements that will change their lives. But some patients are so impaired that treatment becomes overwhelming. Others make exceptional gains in clinical settings, only to hit a wall in less controlled environments. As time passes without results, even the most promising patient can feel the sun setting on the person she used to be, growing disengaged and depressed – convinced she can’t progress further with therapy. If you’re not up to speed on the latest treatment strategies, she might be right. Built on today’s best practices, this program will show how to apply effective techniques that completely redefine what’s possible for your patients! Discover tools and strategies that have helped countless survivors leave their limitations behind, even 10 years post stroke. Objectives: • Discuss the latest advances in stroke recovery and their implications for therapy. • Review strategies for identifying the root cause of post-stroke impairments faster. • Integrate effective interventions that can be used immediately to improve function, multitasking, balance, gait, strength, flexibility and mobility. • Combine multiple interventions more effectively for better results, including dual task interventions, NDT, constraint-induced movement therapy, balance and gait training, exercise, and functional activities. • Design effective, innovative plans of care for a wide range of neurological impairments. • Apply the assessments and interventions discussed in this seminar to a series of interactive case scenarios.
