What the Doctor Never Told You About Osteoporosis and Aquatics
Presented by Marty Biondi, PT, CSCS, ATRIC
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3601Level: Advanced2 Hours
While Osteoporosis has been categorized as a predominantly older woman’s condition, the fact that it is the cause of 2 million fractures a year, makes it a serious health concern. Typically, the concept of weight-bearing exercise does not lend itself to aquatic interventions, but the current literature is compelling for the use of water as a beneficial alternative for the osteoporosis individual. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Best Practices for Rehab Professionals When Caring for Patients Across the Gender Identity Spectrum

Geriatric Strengthening: Defining the Dosage and Debunking the Myth
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3560Level: Intermediate2 Hours
There is no muscle too old, no one ever has too much, but how do I help this person get stronger without making them so sore that they refuse or cancel my next visit? In this course, participants will learn how to apply research to their clinical practice, resulting in higher levels of challenge and improvement: Intensity. Whether it be to improve function, independence, strength or balance… learning how to prescribe the correct amount of intensity & measuring results is a rehabilitative art. This course is designed for the busy clinician wanting to maximize their therapy time and get the best possible results. Know the tests, know the science, apply these individually to a real person. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Motor Learning Series
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3606Level: Introductory4 Hours
Participants will review the models of motor control and learning along with the supporting and contradictory evidence related to each model. Factors such as practice and feedback will be the focus of this course, and how therapists manipulate these factors to maximize motor learning and positive neuroplasticity/recovery. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Individualizing Balance Programs Across the Degenerative Diseases
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3550Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This session will expose participants to contemporary and future advances in balance rehabilitation for persons with a degenerative disease. Evidence in the literature and practical videotape applications will reveal how to objectively test and how to create a corresponding balance program for this population. Considerations of diagnosis, examination results, personality, cognition, and environmental resources are only a few of the considerations that will be directly addressed in this session across the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson and related diseases (PD), Alzheimer disease (AD), multiple systems atrophy (MSA) and cerebellar degenerative conditions. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Stroke Rehabilitation: Maximizing Recovery in Acute and Chronic Cases

Practical applications in this course through video case studies may stretch your mind on how to promote neuroplasticity in all patients. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
