The field of fascial research is exploding with fascinating new knowledge about the role of fascia in sensory communication, force transmission, postural stability, cellular health, and much more. Gaining knowledge of this important three-dimensional structure in the body will enhance the clinician’s ability to improve outcomes in many diverse types of patient diagnoses, including tendonitis, joint restrictions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and neurological hypertonicity.

This two-day course is designed to provide physical and occupational therapists with information and instruction on Kinesio Taping methods. Kinesio Taping is a method of treatment for musculoskeletal and myofascial disorders and edema control. This method can be used during physical activity and in conjunction with many therapies.
In this updated Sensory Motor Approach to Feeding class, complex issues surrounding feeding disorders are discussed, utilizing new research and understanding of sensory processing and the impact on feeding. The class includes two live evaluations and program plans, as well as interactive sensory and feeding practicum.
The KT3 course combines the Kinesio Taping Method foundational concepts of KT1&KT2 with advanced clinical concepts. The course provides lab time for attendees to practice their skills on the new concepts through a variety of clinical applications. The KT3 course is designed to allow the Certified Kinesio Taping Instructor (CKTI) to cater specific clinical applications to address specific professions.
Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb you can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load. By attending the course clinicians will:
This seminar emphasizes the interpretation of basic science knowledge and the development of basic clinical skills which are needed to complete a differential evaluation of the upper extremity dysfunction, then proceeds to treatment. General principles of functional anatomy, tissue and joint biomechanics, pathology, and treatment are presented.
This course was created out of frustration with the way children respond to traditional vestibular rehabilitation. Children are not “just smaller adults” and they have unique presentations and responses to intervention.
As pediatric therapists we are challenged to use Evidence Based
Young children with special needs will benefit when practitioners work together as a cohesive unit to assess and treat the whole child. This transdisciplinary team approach requires pediatric therapists and educators to understand and synthesize knowledge from the fields of speech-language pathology, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and education. Understanding that sensory input drives motor and behavioral output provides the foundation for this course.
This two-day intermediate level course is designed to emphasize the clinical guidelines utilized when developing an evidence-based rehabilitation program. Biomechanics form the keystone philosophy for a multi-modal treatment approach; emphasizing both manual treatment/assessment and dynamic exercise methods. Current evidence-based interventions are presented and analyzed for a variety of diagnoses.
Following the framework established in the introductory pulmonary course, the Advanced Course will focus on applying evidence-based concepts of multi-system integration to clinical situations with a special focus on the role of the cardiopulmonary system in the patient’s rehabilitation program. Prior to the course, small groups of participants will be asked to do evaluations with patients who consent to be part of this learning experience, and they will present these cases to the group for
This two-day intermediate level course is designed to enhance a therapist’s fundamental understanding of surgical approaches for the cervical and lumbar spine in order to effectively develop progressive rehabilitation protocols. The key to successful post surgical rehabilitation is understanding the mechanism of injury, physiological healing time, mechanical changes and surgical techniques.
Get ready to get stuffed, saturated and wrinkled! This “how-to” seminar will put your body in the pool for 2 unbelievably extensive days of skill acquisition (16 hours of class; over 8 hours of pool lab). Think of this as The Appetizer Sampler of Aquatic Therapy seminars. You will be exposed to most of the popular aquatic techniques currently being used in clinics across the globe -- and learn 2 or 3 new ones. Why sit through boring lecture on theory?
We provide the knowledge, skills, and tools to simplify running and turn rehab and fitness professionals into heros for runners. Running injuries are complex and runners want results fast! Learn how to simplify running to get runners back to enjoying the sport they love. The five most common running gait impairments will be covered, and participants will have the chance to use the latest in 3D technology to analyze form and learn advanced methods for gait re-training.
The application of PNF facilitation techniques enhances muscular activation directly and indirectly through the principle of irradiation. Knowing how to utilize indirect, as well as, direct treatment techniques is an essential tool for all therapists, as it enhances patient engagement and improves functional movement outcomes. Clinicians and patients see immediate results which encourages them to build upon the gains they achieve during subsequent visits.
This course will address utilizing current NDT intervention strategies for the pediatric client aged 0-18 with neuromotor challenges (ex CP, Down Syndrome, TBI and other syndromes). Information presented will address using the ICF for assessment/evaluation while practicing intervention strategies for improvements towards function. Participants will be assisted to improve their observational and direct handling skills with analysis and problem solving using NDT techniques.
This continuing education course is a three-day seminar designed to provide a thorough introduction to female pelvic floor function, dysfunction and treatment interventions.
The food we eat impacts every system of the body and nourishment status directly relates to our overall health picture affecting a multitude of conditions treated in pelvic rehabilitation.
This two-day advanced course will provide the clinician with the most recent evidence-based practice guidelines when treating overhead athletes from youth to adult. With an increase in early sport specialization, this course will highlight the risks and benefits of early sport specialization in pediatrics and how care differs from the skeletally mature adult.
For many diagnosed with ADHD, medication is not the best approach as it could be accompanied by side effects and cause concern with long-term use... that’s where caring professionals like yourself step in to offer alternative solutions to help your clients improve their everyday lives.
