Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) affects the entire person and often the visual system. Patients who suffer a TBI require an interdisciplinary team approach to improve the overall function. The devastating effects on the brain may result in neurological changes to the visual system, including double vision, blurred vision, headaches, and balance difficulties. Any of these can impede functional outcomes for all disciplines (i.e., gait training, activities of daily living, social skills, emotional
The Basic Certification course is open only to Physical Therapists. Other courses may be held for Physicians and Orthotists. Only Physical Therapists will be eligible for certification, Physical Therapist Assistants may attend with a physical therapist who is attending to be certified.
This program will introduce clinicians to the basic philosophy and treatment principles developed at the Institute of Elena Salva in Barcelona, Spain, over the last 45 years.
More children than ever need early intervention and other services. nd, there are not enough available services. Therapists, early interventionists, parents, medical professionals, and others have seen a sharp rise in children with delayed and/or disordered feeding, speech, and mouth development. These include children with disabilities as well as many typically-born children who, for some reason, are not developing as expected.
This course will expand on knowledge from the more basic pediatrics courses to help the physical therapist treat more complicated bowel and bladder difficulties in pediatric clients. It will discuss both evaluation and treated strategies for the more complicated pediatric bowel and bladder issues. It will also cover common bowel and bladder issues that occur in neurologically involved child.

The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP), Level 1, provides clinicians with the skills and information necessary to provide a structured learning environment and enhanced educational experience for students. Course content reflects an interdisciplinary approach to experiential learning methods, with an emphasis on didactic content related to clinical teaching, supervision, and evaluation.
This two-day workshop has been designed for speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists who need greater experience in focusing on rib cage activity and its influence on postural control and respiratory, general movement, and oral-pharyngeal function in terms of the evaluation and treatment services they provide. Significant anatomical/kinesiological and developmental characteristic of typical rib cage alignment and activity will be reviewed.
Join us for a Train-the-Trainer session on the Early Feeding Skills Assessment (EFS) Tool. Effective feeding care starts with assessment of what the infant needs to be successful. Learn to use the EFS to effectively plan provide an infant-guided approach to feeding. Simultaneously learn to train others back home to use the EFS to strengthen your unit’s feeding care. Review current research, the role of experience, dynamic systems theory, and feeding outcomes after NICU.
Patients with low back and pelvic/hip pain make up nearly 50% of all patients receiving outpatient physical therapy. EIM’s Management of Lumbopelvic Disorders course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with lumbar spine and pelvic disorders and dysfunction.
This timely seminar will bring you essential information to problem-solve complex swallowing and feeding disorders. Correlating co-morbidities, clinical data, and the infant/child’s behaviors is at the heart of completing a good differential.
Many insurers are beginning to deny aquatic therapy for the pediatric client, in part because clinicians do not understand how to make the case for aquatics. Stop extolling the virtues of aquatic therapy for the pediatric client…without providing tangible evidence-based support. Leave this dynamic course understanding how, when, where, and under what circumstances to provide aquatic therapy…and how to justify that choice to the world.
Lymphedema is an accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the superficial tissues and is a very common and serious condition worldwide. It has important pathological and clinical consequences for the patient if left untreated.
Secondary lymphedema is often caused by trauma to the lymphatic system, such as surgery, injury, scarring, infection, and radiation therapy. Post-mastectomy lymphedema of the upper extremity caused by breast cancer treatment is very common in the United States.

After completing fundamental concepts, the course will move into advanced techniques and clinical reasoning. Attendees will problem-solve complex clini
This course will present current understanding of the scope of the vestibular dysfunction problem, best practices, and systematic evaluation and treatments to address vestibular deficits in the school-aged child and adolescent. The course combines lecture, hands-on lab, and case study to accurately and efficiently address dysfunction. This course is updated as new information and guidelines are published.
This evidence-based symposium will bring together top clinical researchers in the field of biomechanics to discuss and debate contemporary topics related to running biomechanics, running-related injuries, and the rehabilitation of the injured runner. The use of video analysis as part of the running gait examination will be emphasized, and novel strategies to modify running mechanics will be presented as part of a comprehensive approach to treatment.
This five-day workshop on gait and mobility for the pediatric client has been designed for pediatric therapists who were trained and successfully completed the Basic Pediatric NDT course at least one year prior to the start of this advanced, approved gait course. The emphasis is to promote continued analysis and problem-solving towards gait and function in vertical with children through young adults 21 years of age who present with neurological challenges.
This course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with lower extremity disorders and dysfunction. This lab intensive course focuses on the clinical reasoning and hands-on skill development necessary to effectively integrate manual physical therapy examination and intervention techniques into the clinical management of these individuals.
Having practiced and perfected the techniques of FDN Level 1, practitioners are now experienced and skilled enough to cover musculature in more technical areas, including that of the thoracic spine and trunk, lumbar spine, cervical spine, hip, hand, foot, upper extremity, temporomandibular joint, and connective tissues.
