Optimizing Functional Mobility in the Older Adult

December 2-3, 2017
Mission Viejo, CA
Instructor: Linda Horn, PT, DScPT, MHS, NCS
Contact: 800-300-5512, Email
About the Event

 

As the population ages, there is a continual growing need for physical and occupational therapists and other health care providers to develop comprehensive solutions to maximize mobility and achieve postitive functional outcomes. This intermediate level course will utilize the best evidence based research in examination and treatment techniques for older adults and apply them to results driven clinical practices. This course will teach clinicians how to perform a comprehensive examination of older adults with orthopedic, neurologic, and cardiopulmonary diagnoses as well as other pathologies with an emphasis on integrating findings into the development of the plan of care. A variety of tests and interventions will be practiced in labs to allow participants the opportunity to practice the concepts discussed during lectures, such as appropriate strength training for older adults and treatment of vestibular disorders. Since vestibular disorders may be missed in older adults, identification and treatment of vestibular impairment is vital to successful outcomes in this population to prevent further injury and to establish a successful path toward functional mobility. This course will also include implications of other diagnoses common to older adults such as diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, hip fracture, and several other diagnoses. Case studies will be used for participants to practice problem solving and clinical decision making in older adults. The information in this course can be adapted for all practice settings including acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing facilities/subacute, outpatient, and home care. This evidence based course will incorporate current and relevant information to develop an individualized treatment plan to improve functional outcomes in your patients. A comprehensive manual will supplement the didactic and lab portions of the course.

Vestibular Rehabilitation: Evaluation and Management of Individuals with Dizziness and Balance Diso

December 2-3, 2017
Avon, IN
Instructor: Richard Clendaniel
Contact: 1-800-487-6530, Email
About the Event

Symptoms of dizziness are the number 3 reason individuals over the age of 65 seek medical attention. It becomes the number 1 reason for seeking care in individuals over the age of 70. Medical or surgical management is often not indicated or helpful, but many of these individuals do benefit from vestibular rehabilitation techniques. In addition, 50% of the individuals over the age of 65 with dizziness will develop a particular form of vertigo that can be alleviated with one simple therapy treatment. These individuals with vertigo and dysequilibrium represent a large patient population for physical and occupational therapy.

This course willfocus on the assessment and treatment of patients with vertigo and disequilibrium from vestibular causes. Specific emphasis will be placed on the assessment and treatment of unilateral and bilateral vestibular hypofunction, benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo, central vestibular disorders, and multisensory dizziness. This information is applicable to a large patient population including geriatric patients as well as individuals with CNS lesions such as multiple sclerosis, CVA, and head injury.

TBI and Concussions

January 27-28, 2018
Las Vegas, NV
Instructor: Karen Skop, PT, DPT
About the Event

This course is a two-day, advanced seminar focusing on balance and vestibular sequellae that may arise following a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The cause of concussions can be varied, from sports-related injuries, car accidents, falls, to the more unique and complex mTBI sustained by the thousands of returning soldiers from war zone regions. This course is designed to aid in the identification of vestibular and balance deficits following a concussion. The participant will learn what types of diagnoses are most common following a concussion, expected recovery, outcomes and prognosis. We will cover a variety of pathologies including diffuse axonal injury, skull fractures, complex cases of BPPV, vestibular loss, cranial nerve damage, fistulas, traumatic Meniere’s, whiplash, motion intolerance, exercise induced dizziness and balance dysfunctions. We will discuss current “return to play”. guidelines, their limitations and how balance plays an important role. Case studies will be introduced so that participants will learn to systematically approach the examination, establish a working diagnosis and develop treatment plan and finally exercise prescription. Case studies will include several videos examples, focusing on key features to aid in interpretation of eye movement patterns and developing differential diagnosis from skills learned during lab. This course is organized to build in complexity, through case presentations, guided lab and lectures to allow the learner to have a thorough understanding of how to manage this population without getting overwhelmed! Throughout the course, evidence-based practice is emphasized. Participants will be able to develop clear, concise treatment regimen, learn how to educate patient, families and coaches on when is the best time to “return to play”. Finally, participants will learn what is known in the literature, what is not known and how you as a health care provider can play a prominent role.

Vestibular Rehabilitation - A Comprehensive Clinical Approach for Positive Functional Outcomes

February 24-25, 2018
Seattle, WA
Instructor: Georgia Groomer, PT
Contact: 800-300-5512, Email

A thorough understanding of underlying disorders assist the clinician in developing effective treatment and exercise programs to decrease symptoms and enhance balance and functional ability. Options and considerations for creating treatment plans and long-term care management strategies are thoroughly discussed.

The treatment ideas presented in this course can be applied to patients with vestibular disorders as well as to patients with limitations in balance or sensory integration. Clinicians will be able to immediately apply this information in the clinical setting.

This course will review history of treatment of concussions with most current “best” practices as well as pathophysiology and recent advances in diagnosis and management. In depth assessment through laboratory practice will be covered for each clinical trajectory with validated objective tests and measures and laboratory break out time to practice and become comfortable with administration and interpretation of results. Sport related clinical cases will be presented to aid in identification of driving subtypes so treatment strategies can be implemented and impairment driven intervention covered. Utilization of a multi-modal approach relevant to rehabilitation professionals will be presented with treatment strategies specific to clinical symptomology. Course participants will utilize cervical, exertional, vestibular as well as visual rehabilitation strategies to be able to treat sport related concussion injuries effectively and insure patients do not experience recurrent symptomology.

The participant will learn what types of diagnoses are most common following a concussion, expected recovery, outcomes, and prognosis. We will cover a variety of pathologies including diffuse axonal injury, skull fractures, complex cases of BPPV, vestibular loss, cranial nerve damage, fistulas, traumatic Meniere’s, whiplash, motion intolerance, exercise-induced dizziness and balance dysfunctions. We will discuss current “return to play”. guidelines, their limitations and how balance plays an important role. Case studies will be introduced so that participants will learn to systematically approach the examination, establish a working diagnosis and develop a treatment plan and finally exercise prescription. Case studies will include several videos examples, focusing on key features to aid in interpretation of eye movement patterns and developing differential diagnosis from skills learned during lab. This course is organized to build in complexity, through case presentations, guided lab and lectures to allow the learner to have a thorough understanding of how to manage this population without getting overwhelmed! Throughout the course evidence-based practice is emphasized. Participants will be able to develop clear, concise treatment regimen, learn how to educate patient, families and coaches on when is the best time to “return to play”. Finally, participants will learn what is known in the literature, what is not known and how you as a health care provider can play a prominent role.
