Title of Course: *

Myokinematic Restoration

Speaker(s) *

Dan Houglum MSPT, ATC/L, PRC

Date course begins if live course: Saturday, September 7, 2019
Location of Course

Missoula, MT -Hosted by Missoula Bone & Joint Physical Therapy

Number of Course Hours (remove breaks and meals): *

15

Primary Audience *

PT/PTA

Additional Course Information (Objectives and Description):

This advanced lecture and lab course explores the biomechanics of contralateral and ipsilateral myokinematic lumbo-pelvic-femoral dysfunction. Treatment emphasizes the restoration of pelvic-femoral alignment and recruitment of specific rotational muscles to reduce synergistic predictable patterns of pathomechanic asymmetry. Emphasis will be placed on restoration, recruitment, and retraining activities using internal and external rotators of the femur, pelvis, and lower trunk. Guidance will be provided on how to inhibit overactive musculature. This will enable the course participant to restore normal resting muscle position. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and management skills when treating diagnoses such as piriformis syndrome, ilio-sacral joint dysfunction, and low back strain.

#160 Restore the Core: Motor Control and Core Strengthening Basics and Beyond

Speaker(s) *

Caroline Creager, PT, DPT

Date course begins if live course: Saturday, October 19, 2019

Primary Audience *

PT/PTA

Additional Course Information (Objectives and Description):

Core strengthening and motor control exercises are integral components of any rehabilitation program. Restore the Core provides therapists with an evidenced-based approach to incorporating motor planning and core stability into functional movement and neuromuscular re-education. Restore the Core will not only help your patients flatten their abs, improve their balance, core strength, stability, incontinence and low back pain - but you as well! Dynamic lectures, audiovisuals, demonstrations, case studies, labs and handouts provide participants an understanding of the theory underlying motor programming and core strengthening exercise, design and progression of training programs, and special considerations for training a wide variety of diagnoses and functional limitations. Interactive lab sessions allow participants to learn and practice techniques to facilitate palpation, correct core contractions and dynamic stabilization using Swiss balls, foam rollers and resistive bands, and apply kinesiology tape to the core to further promote restoring the core - for immediate implementation into the clinic. Come find out why participants love Restore the Core.

Additional Course Information (Objectives and Description):

The SFMA was designed for the healthcare professional that routinely treats patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Most healthcare professionals tend to be focused on the problem in front of them however, maintaining or restoring precise movement of specific segments is the key to preventing or correcting musculoskeletal dysfunction. When the clinical assessment is initiated from the perspective of a movement pattern, the clinician has the opportunity to identify meaningful impairments that may be seemingly unrelated to the main musculoskeletal complaint, but contribute to the associated disability. Normal movement is achieved through an adequate balance of mobility and stability to meet the demands of the task at hand. The human system migrates toward predictable patterns of movement in response to injury or in the presence of weakness, tightness, or structural abnormality. If movement is dysfunctional, all things built on that dysfunction might be flawed, compromised or predisposed to risk even if disguised by acceptable levels of skill or performance. The SFMA approach is based on the premise that pain and dysfunction occur as a result of impaired patterns of movement. Specific musculoskeletal dysfunction is considered the consequence rather than the cause of faulty movement patterns. Emphasis is placed upon identifying the root cause of the dysfunction rather than source of the symptoms.
The goal of the SFMA is to provide a standardized algorithmic system to identify impaired patterns of functional movement. The SFMA approach is designed to complement the existing exam and serve as a model to efficiently integrate the concepts of posture, muscle balance, and the fundamental patterns of movement into musculoskeletal practice. The SFMA is a comprehensive movement assessment used to categorize movement patterns and link the assessment information to the initial therapeutic exercise strategy. The exam process then drives therapeutic intervention selection.
