Functional Evaluation and Treatment: the foot bone is connected to the head bone.
Presented by Anita Davidson, PT, DPT, CAFS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2939Level: Intermediate4 Hours
Please note: This course series is comprised of the following individual recordings: #2925, and #2902.

Part 1 of this two-part series will cover evaluation and will challenge you to perform self assessment of balance, mobility, stability, and function in three planes of motion to assist in the understanding of function from the foot to the head using a cause and effect methodology. Part 2 will concentrate on functional exercise and treatment.

Concussion and the Older Adult: Does Age Make a Difference?
Presented by Debbie Struiksma, PT, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2879Level: 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.

Concussion: Conditioning the Brain and Body for Return to Sport
Presented by Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2881Level: 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. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Chronic Post-Concussion Syndrome: Psychological and Cognitive Implications for Treatment
Presented by Brady Whetten, PT, DPT, GCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2877Level: 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 Management Update: Recommendations from the Berlin Meeting
Presented by Tamara McLeod, PhD, ATC, FNATA
Recorded WebinarText/Transcript
Course: #2893Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will discuss the development process of the most recent international concussion consensus statements. Specific recommendations based on the 12 accompanying systematic reviews will be highlighted. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and appropriate for the PT, PTA and AT.

Function: the foot bone is connected to the head bone! Functional Exercises & Treatment (Part 2)
Presented by Anita Davidson, PT, DPT, CAFS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2902Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course challenges what we know of function in three planes of motion from the foot to the head related to common orthopedic conditions that are a result of a breakdown of the kinetic chain focusing on the cause of pain versus symptoms. This class will challenge you to perform self assessment of balance, mobility, stability, and function in three planes of motion to assist in the understanding of function from the foot to the head using a cause and effect methodology. This is part 2 of a two-part series concentrating on functional exercise and treatment.

Overcoming the Difficulties of Obesity in the Clinical Application of Physical Therapy
Presented by Steven Mauk, M.Ed
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2889Level: Introductory2 Hours
The main idea of the course is to provide strategies for physical therapy professionals to not only help their patients identify their obesity is directly linked to their ability to recover, but also provide guidance for physical therapy professionals with developing a treatment plan that will assist with the patient's acute injury and comorbidity. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Maximizing Recovery with Exercise for Those with Neurological Diagnosis
Presented by Jill Seale, PT, PhD, NCS
Recorded Webinar
Course: #2896Level: Intermediate2 Hours
This course will provide clinicians with an enhanced knowledge of therapeutic exercise as it applies to persons with neurological disease/diagnoses, highlighting how therapeutic exercise in this population is different from the musculoskeletal diagnoses. The course will focus on evidence based therapeutic exercises that go beyond traditional strengthening/fitness exercises and promote neuroplasticity, motor learning, and recovery of function. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Tennessee Ethics in Physical Therapy: Bioethics and Our Code of Ethics
Presented by Brigette Cuffia, PT, JD
Text/Transcript
Course: #3907Level: Intermediate3 Hours
This course is specifically designed for PTs and PTAs licensed in the state of Tennessee. Physical therapists make ethical decisions on a daily basis. In routine clinical practice PTs and PTAs are also faced with tough situations known as ethical dilemmas. Understanding bioethics and the APTA Code of Ethics can help therapists make decisions regarding ethical issues in an informed way. Models of ethical decision making will be presented and clinical examples analyzed. Upon taking this course therapists will more readily recognize the ethical makeup of their clinical practice and feel more confident in their ethical decision making. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is appropriate for the PT and PTA.

The Neurologic Shoulder: Addressing Shoulder Pain and Subluxation
Presented by Salvador Bondoc, OTD, OTR/L, BCPR, CHT, FAOTA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #3351Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Glenohumeral pain and subluxation are a common complication of stroke. While occupational therapy practitioners recognize these conditions and their negative consequences on functional outcomes, they are poorly understood and often not addressed adequately. This short course is intended to promote an in-depth understanding of glenohumeral pain and subluxation and provide options for evidence-based interventions.
