Fabrication of a Training AFO
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3119Level: Advanced2 Hours
Research indicated that in inpatient rehab "The largest percentage of time in physical therapy sessions was spent on gait activities" (Jette, et al., Physical Therapy, 2005; 85(3): 238-248, p. 241). Ankle foot orthotics (AFOs) are not issued in inpatient rehab due to the costs and interim interventions such as stabilizing the foot with an ace bandage are not adequate. Facilities do not have access to pre-fabricated AFOs or electrical stimulation units now being used as walking aides to replace AFOs. Focused rigidity casting is widely used in the orthopedic population and can be applied to the neurologic population. This course will provide insight on the use of focused rigidity casting to fabricate training an AFO. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Motor Behavior in Infants and Toddlers: A Developmental Systems Perspective
Presented by Tricia Catalino, PT, DSc, PCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3152Level: Introductory2 Hours
In this webinar, participants will discuss how emerging motor behaviors in infants and toddlers bring opportunities for learning, leading to more opportunities for moving and doing. Caregiving routines, environments, and interactions will be examined to understand differences in the way infants and toddlers form new skills that potentially affect their developmental outcomes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.

Foundations for School Readiness: Sensory Regulation and Yoga
Presented by Britt Collins, MS, OTR/L
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #3253Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will provide you tips and tools to integrate sensory regulation, yoga and mindfulness into the classroom for children of all abilities.

Management of Upper Extremity Pathology in the Overhead Athlete
Presented by David Nolan, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, SCS, CSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3125Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Upper extremity pathology is common in the general population and even more frequent with overhead athletes. To be successful in this specialized population it is important to understand the rehabilitation progression for a safe return to the demands of overhead activity. The purpose of this presentation is to present an evidence-based review of current physical therapy practice for the management and treatment of shoulder and elbow pathology in the overhead athlete. The principles of dynamic stabilization as it relates to an overhead athlete population will be discussed. Criteria for a safe progression to overhead sport following injury will also be included.

The Masters Female Athlete
Presented by Janice Loudon, PT, PhD, SCS, ATC, CSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3095Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Involvement of female athletes after the age of 40 has exploded in distance events such as the half marathon and IronMan triathlon. This course will discuss several aspects of the master female including physiology, musculoskeletal concerns and training recommendations. The content of this course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Electrical Stimulation for Recovery of Function in Neurorehabilitation
Presented by Rebecca Martin, OTR/L, OTD, CPAM, CKTP
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3377Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will describe the different mechanisms of action for electrical stimulation to restore function in patients with neurological dysfunction. Using case studies and best evidence, participants will learn how to design and execute interventions with electrical stimulation useful in neurorehabiliation.

Multiple Sclerosis: Pathology, Evaluation and Intervention
Presented by Herb Karpatkin, PT, DSc, NCS, MSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3192Level: Advanced6 Hours
This course consists of three courses, #3144, #3148 and #3178. Part 1 lays the groundwork for later courses which address physical therapy management. Part 2 reviews the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis, the evaluation process and will address physical therapy management. In part 3 the presenter will cover evaluation and intervention strategies for those with mild, moderate and severe disability as well as pediatric and older adult patients with MS.

Multiple Sclerosis: Evaluation and Intervention for Patients with Mild, Moderate, and Severe Disability
Presented by Herb Karpatkin, PT, DSc, NCS, MSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3178Level: Advanced2 Hours
This course is part 3 of a series on multiple sclerosis (MS). In this course, the presenter will cover evaluation and intervention strategies for those with mild, moderate and severe disability as well as pediatric and older adult patients with MS.

Multiple Sclerosis: Current Concepts in Pathophysiology, Evaluation, and Intervention for Rehabilitation
Presented by Herb Karpatkin, PT, DSc, NCS, MSCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3148Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course reviews the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis, the evaluation process and will address physical therapy management. It is part 2 of a three-part series on multiple sclerosis. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Surgical Updates for Less Invasive Partial and Total Knee Replacement
