Neuroplasticity in Vestibular Impairment: The Foundation and Facilitatory Techniques for Optimizing Healing
Presented by Janene Holmberg, PT, DPT, NCS
Live WebinarThu, Apr 26, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT   Starts in 6h 45m
Course: #3066 Level: Introductory2 Hours
Dizziness and instability are a common cause of disability with vestibular dysfunction often being involved and more importantly being found responsive to therapeutic intervention. This webinar will discuss the theoretical framework quantifying the robust inherent potential for healing and its clinical implications for lessening disability.

Neuroplasticity in Degenerative Diseases
Presented by Diane Huss, PT, DPT, NCS, Herb Karpatkin, PT, DSc, NCS, MSCS
Live WebinarFri, Apr 27, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #3055 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course consists of two, one hour courses on neuroplasticity in Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis individuals. The purpose of the course regarding individuals with MS is to provide clinical guidance to Multiple Sclerosis rehabilitation specialists on how to utilize principles of neuroplasticity to improve clinical outcomes. An evidence-based approach will be utilized focusing on current research and its clinical implications. The purpose of the course regarding individuals with Parkinson's is to discuss the concept of “Neuroplasticity” versus “Neuroprotection” in the framework of Parkinson’s Disease. Opportunities to affect potential change through clinical interventions in various settings will be discussed.

Neuroplasticity and Rehabilitation
Presented by Jim Lynskey, PT, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3028 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will cover the mechanisms and principles of activity dependent neuroplasticity and motor learning. Participants will be presented with the current understanding of neuroplasticity, the factors that modulate it, and evidence-based applications to rehabilitation

Achilles Tendon Ruptures: Examination and Management
Presented by Stephanie Albin, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3013 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will discuss both examination and management strategies for patients sustaining Achilles tendon ruptures. The course will also provide long-term clinical outcomes for patients after sustaining these tendon ruptures. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Examination and Treatment of Ataxia Following Cerebellar Damage
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Live WebinarFri, May 4, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #3027 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Normal movement is smooth and accurate, but damage to the cerebellum disrupts this ability to make coordinated movements and causes ataxia which impacts all aspects of movement. This course will provide clinically applicable, evidence-based strategies for the identification, examination, and treatment of persons with ataxia. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Using Imaging to Your Advantage: The Upper Extremity and Differential Diagnosis
Presented by John Heick, PT, PhD, DPT, OCS, NCS, SCS
Live WebinarWed, May 9, 2018 at 3:00 pm EDT
Course: #3063 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
The subject matter of this course will include (1) a review of principles of upper extremity imaging, (2) differential diagnosis of the upper extremity, (3) incorporating imaging with the clinical examination, and (4) case studies designed to assist clinicians in matching imaging to the clinical examination.

Evaluating the Wrist: The Basics
Presented by Rachel Pigott, OTR/L, CHT
Live WebinarThu, May 10, 2018 at 8:00 pm EDT
Course: #3042 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This webinar will introduce the learner to the basic tenets of wrist evaluation. Attendees will learn to decide which testing is appropriate based upon patient report and symptoms guided by knowledge of anatomical structures. In addition, interpretation of findings will be examined in order to develop an appropriate client centered plan of care. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and evaluation and therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Orthopedic Conditions in Pediatrics: A Primer for Physical Therapy Professionals

The aim is to provide clinicians with a framework for orthopedic evidence-based clinical decision-making in order to recognize and address orthopedic problems, optimize patient outcomes, and refer patients who may require care out of their scope of practice.

Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy: An Overview of Examination and Intervention Principles
Presented by Lisa Kenyon, PT, DPT, PhD, PCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2984 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course introduces the pathophysiology and potential functional sequelae of obstetric brachial plexus palsy (OBPP). An evidence-based overview of examination and intervention principles is provided. This activity is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Glenohumeral Impingement Syndrome: Individualizing Treatment Approaches Based on Examination and Evidence
Presented by Michael T. Lebec, PT, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3011 Level: Advanced2 Hours
Developing a plan of care to reduce deficits associated with Gleno-humeral Impingement Syndrome is not a one-size fits all effort. This course will provide clinicians with a systematic approach to designing a treatment plan which is tailored to the patient’s individual needs and problems. This method begins with performing the tests and measures most supported by evidence and using findings to select effective manual and exercise interventions. This information will be presented from the perspective of multiple case studies as well as a survey of recent literature. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.
