Alterations in Muscle Tone: Diagnosis and Management
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Live WebinarFri, Sep 29, 2017 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #2839 Level: Introductory2 Hours
This course will provide participants with a thorough understanding of the spectrum of muscle tone and the pathophysiology of altered muscle tone. Best practice interventions for hypotonicity and hypertonicity, including rehabilitation and medical management, will be identified. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Contraversive Pushing (Pusher Syndrome)
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2830 Level: Advanced2 Hours
This course will provide participants with tools to identify and objectively evaluate those persons with contraversive pushing, as well as an understanding of the impact of pushing on recovery. Practical strategies for managing persons with contraversive pushing, and ameliorating the perceptual dysfunction will be provided. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part III: Lesions of the Cerebellum
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2710 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The purpose of this course is to review typical stroke lesions of the cerebellum and describe resulting impairments that may be observed during gait. Using a systems approach, the PTA will be instructed how to formulate interventions within their scope of practice and the established plan of care to improve gait impairments. The presentation will utilize a case-based approach to demonstrate and summarize application of the material. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Chronic Post-Concussion Syndrome: Psychological and Cognitive Implications for Treatment
Presented by Brady Whetten, PT, DPT, GCS
Live WebinarTue, Nov 14, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #2877 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Persistent non-vertiginous dizziness can be a prominent disabling complaint following a concussion. While treatment techniques of habituation, adaptation, and substitution are well established, many individuals with post-concussion syndrome suffer from additional psychological and cognitive impairments. Traditional vestibular rehab techniques are often ineffective and occasionally counterproductive in dealing with these individuals. The intent of this course will be to provide rehabilitation professionals specific tools to better treat and manage patients who exhibit primary impairments of somatosensory/vestibular processing deficits, dual task intolerance and autonomic nervous system maladaptation. We will present the latest evidence regarding the use of dual task techniques, sensory facilitation and integrative relaxation techniques. Through case applications, we will present a framework to successfully identify individuals that will benefit from this expanded toolbox based on their history and examination, and clear examples of progressing interventions and measuring progress. Proper dosage to ensure tolerance and sufficient training to optimize recovery will be reviewed. The content of this course is appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Concussion: Conditioning the Brain and Body for Return to Sport
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Live WebinarWed, Nov 15, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #2881 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Concussion rehabilitation is perhaps the most emergent science in rehabilitative medicine. We recognize a concussion and understand the physiology of injury and of recovery better now than we did just 5 years ago. When the goal is to return to the athletic field, concussion rehabilitation is complicated by the myths, the motivations (athlete, coaches, parents), and the unique notion of returning a patient back to a potentially threatening environment requiring a very high level of skill to be safe, much less to perform. In this webinar, we will use evidence in concussion rehabilitation to tackle these complications in an effort to help clinicians navigate the recovery protocol and decision-making processes toward an optimal outcome and timely return.

Concussion and the Older Adult: Does Age Make a Difference?
Presented by Debbie Struiksma, PT, NCS
Live WebinarThu, Nov 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #2879 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course is designed for therapists looking to expand their knowledge and clinical skills in the assessment and intervention of older adults with mild traumatic brain injury. Often these patients have overwhelming symptoms and comorbidities that make them challenging to manage. This course will review the evidence and present a working framework for successful management and improved outcomes in this population. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part II: Lesions of the Subcortex
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2714 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The purpose of this course is to review typical stroke lesions of the subcortex and describe resulting impairments that may be observed during gait. Using a systems approach, the PTA will be instructed how to formulate interventions within their scope of practice and the established plan of care to improve gait impairments. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Neurologic Gait Analysis, Treatment, and Measurement: Case-Based Interventions for the PTA, Part I: Lesions of the Cortex
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2713 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The purpose of this course is to review typical stroke lesions of the cortex and describe resulting impairments that may be observed during gait. Using a systems approach, the PTA will be instructed how to formulate interventions within their scope of practice and the established plan of care to improve gait impairments. The presentation will utilize a case-based approach to demonstrate and summarize application of the material. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Pharmacological Management of the Patient With Neurological and/or Central Nervous System Disorders
Presented by Rosanne Thomas, PT, MS, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2748 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Rehabilitation outcomes can be hindered, enhanced or merely complicated by medically necessary drug treatment. This course will investigate the complexities of pharmacological interaction with physical rehabilitation for patients with neurological and/or central nervous system disorders in order to optimize intervention for both. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Building Healthy Brains: Sensory Strategies for Optimal Brain Function & Postural Concerns
Presented by Cara Koscinski, MOT, OTR/L
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #2738 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Optimal function of our body occurs when our sensory and motor systems are strong and able to adapt to the demands of the environment. Today’s children often struggle with fidgeting, decreased attention, and immature motor patterns which manifest themselves through frustration and behavior issues. This course will take a look at these issues and identify treatment strategies.
