Event Overview
Welcome message:

This dynamic advanced two day course will give clinicians an opportunity to expand their “bag of tricks” for treating gait impairments by taking what they know about PNF and advancing it to the next level. The course blends the theory and application of PNF based treatments with principles of therapeutic exercise, the use of exercise equipment and manual therapy to create comprehensive gait rehab programs. The concepts and information presented in this course will provide the clinician with a systematic method to move from assessment to treatment and will enhance their hands on skills for patients with both orthopedic and neurological impairments. Patient scenarios and video analysis of gait will be used to identify impairments for both neurological and orthopedic patient diagnoses. Analysis of dysfunctional movement patterns and the implications on gait will be addressed, as well as, prioritizing which impairment is having the greatest effect on function. Clinicians will be able to develop a working therapy diagnosis and translate their assessment findings into specific gait corrections and corroborate these with appropriate exercise interventions.

Through the use of case studies and course discussion, the clinician will be able to develop a comprehensive progressive manual therapy and exercise based program to obtain the desired functional outcome. Participants will use an assessment/treatment framework which includes motion analysis, identification of strengths and impairments, causes for impairments, treatment planning. The framework also incorporates exercise progression, utilization of commonly used exercise equipment and development of home exercise programs. Over the two days clinicians will review specific PNF patterns and facilitation techniques and integrate these into patient exercise programs to progress the patient through pre-gait activities and the gait sequence.

Participants will work with case scenarios and go from assessment to developing comprehensive treatment programs for a patient with a neurological and orthopedic diagnosis.

This course is 80 percent lab which enables the participant the opportunity for adequate hands on practice time.

The concepts and techniques presented in this course will provide Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Physical Therapist Assistants with the information and skills needed to treat the ambulatory needs of their patients in all therapy settings The theories and facilitation techniques learned in this course can be immediately applied and participants will have the tools necessary to integrate concepts presented in this course into clinical practice.

Clinicians will be provided with course handouts and resources which can serve as reference material upon completion of the course.
