A concussion is a complex physiological process. A successful rehabilitation program provides a progressive, healing environment that promotes the improvement of functional and cognitive ability. Clinicians must be skilled in differentiating the results of special tests in order to identify the underlying mechanism of the dysfunction and develop an appropriate, individualized rehab program. This course provides you with the essential tools to properly evaluate and treat a concussion patient and develop effective rehab programs to improve function and overall quality of life.
If you can’t conclusively determine the structural pathology, how can you be confident in what you’re treating? A different approach for patients is to look at their history, their objectives, and the exam findings, and use these to try and categorize them or classify them according to what initial treatment approach makes the most sense. This approach, known as the classification system, has been clinically proven to produce clinical outcomes that are better than they would be if we were to try to chase the pathologic anatomy.
Thirty-seven years of clinical expertise at your finger tips! Learn how to formulate your own comprehensive approach to treating shoulder dysfunction with information that can only be acquired from decades of clinical practice and proven research analysis. Combining clinical expertise with specifically-selected, evidenced-based data, this course presents you with the foundation to provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment approach to effectively develop energy-efficient functional outcomes.
Combine forty years of clinical experience with expertise from over one hundred evidence based research articles and you have a recipe for an advanced shoulder course providing the most up to date practical evidenced based information. This hands-on course will enhance your expertise in examination, manual therapy, and reasoning skills, thus providing you with the expertise to develop advanced therapeutic exercise programs for shoulder dysfunction.
Cancer rehabilitation encompasses the mind as well as the entire body. Both psychological and physiological factors are involved. As a therapist you need to understand how the the body works in optimal conditions and in compromised situations. An understanding of how the body responds to specific cancer treatments and the associated response time will ultimately affect your rehab program and plans. This knowledge will provide you with the tools needed to successfully encourage and treat a patient throughout the continuum of care and enable you to reach measurable functional outcomes in a timely manner.
Proper Posture is the result of numerous anatomical and physiological components that contribute in varying levels to the end result. As we age, this delicate balance is challenged, often resulting in deficiency which manifests itself as improper posture. This course will utilize a joint by joint approach from the foot upwards differentiating either a mobility or stability deficit (or both). The clinician will learn to treat the entire patient from a postural standpoint using a holistic approach of functional based manual therapy techniques, therapeutic activities designed to mobilize the patient in weight bearing and reflexively stabilize them in functional movement patterns.
