SOP: Strategies for Optimizing Performance is organized by The Institute of Physical Art, Inc. (IPA) and will be held from Aug 24 - 25, 2019 at Prevea Therapy Institute, De Pere, Wisconsin, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 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: The main purpose of this course is to utilize concepts taught in CoreFirst® Strategies and PNF principles taught in several other IPA courses to enhance the stability and therefore the physical performance of our highest functioning patients. Course Description: In this class, the clinician will build on the concepts learned in CoreFirst® Strategies to further enhance their observational and manual facilitation skills to better evaluate and treat higher functioning patient populations. The trained clinician can develop an eye to observe specific details of movement for quality, timing, sequencing, stability, and control that is often missed in other less clinical and less hands-on approaches. The goal with all functional training is to maximize efficiency of movements to improve physical performance and to decrease compensations and aberrant movement patterns that can lead to injury. Course Objectives: By the end of the course, the participant will be able to: • Explain how Automatic Core Engagement can be used to assess physical performance capabilities • Discuss the Saliba Postural Classification System (SPCS) and how these variations can impact physical performance. • Expand on concepts taught in CFS to bring these to more dynamic movements through Dynamic Functional Tests. • Explain how the principles of body mechanics presented in CFS can be applied to various sports specific positions and activities. • Demonstrate how Functional Tests can be used in multiple positions to highlight the importance of Automatic Core Engagement with higher level dynamic positions. • Assess key developmental positions (supine and prone progressions) including an emphasis on trunk alignment and neuromuscular control in each position. • Utilize PNF in developmental positions to enhance optimum function using principles of positioning, manual contacts, resistance, and irradiation to enhance facilitation for improved stability and physical performance. • Identify key exercises commonly used in the performance and strength environment and discuss common dysfunctions based on the integration of the thoracic and pelvic girdle. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
