Management of Upper Extremity Pathology in the Overhead Athlete
Presented by David Nolan, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, SCS, CSCS
Live WebinarFri, Aug 3, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #3125 Level: 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.

Fabrication of a Training AFO
Presented by Jennifaye V. Brown, PhD, PT, NCS
Live WebinarMon, Aug 13, 2018 at 3:00 pm EDT
Course: #3119 Level: 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). 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.

Aquatic Lumbar Stabilization Progressions
Presented by Beth Scalone, PT, DPT, OCS
Live WebinarFri, Aug 24, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #3121 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
By presenting latest research respect to spine stabilization and aquatic therapy for individuals with lumbar spine dysfunction, this course aims to assist the clinician in utilizing the unique properties of water to improve their patient’s outcomes. Clinical applications discussed include; aquatic exercise progressions to reduce pain and improve function. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Diastasis Recti Abdominus
Presented by Jennifer Cumming, PT, MSPT, CLT, WCS
Live WebinarFri, Aug 31, 2018 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #3132 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Diastasis rectus abdominus is a common orthopedic complaint during and after pregnancy and after abdominal surgeries. As physical therapists in all settings, we need to be able to diagnose this muscle separation and be able to treat our patients appropriately. A diastasis rectus abdominus can contribute to our patients’ back, hip, and low back pain, as well as pelvic floor complaints.

Understanding the 3 D's: Dementia, Delirium and Depression in Older Adults
