Seminar Description: Applicable to all practice settings and specialty practice areas, this seminar teaches physical therapists advanced clinical methods for biomechanically diagnosing movement impairments and implementing manual therapy interventions to the upper extremities, cervical and thoracic spines. This is an evidence-based, hands-on seminar that translates clinical practice to immediately achieve optimal functional outcomes. The latest clinical prediction rules CPR’s presented so to equip therapists with criteria based methods that ascertain the greatest likelihood for optimal functional outcomes that are necessary for imminent pay for performance reimbursement standards.
Following completion of this seminar you will be able to:
- Differentiate movement impairment and functional-based Differential Diagnosis skills from pathology-based Medical Screening Skills.
- Identify the role and responsibility of movement impairment and functional-based Differential Diagnosis as related to best practice for all PT practice environments.
- Review normal and abnormal anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.
- Understand biomechanical and physiological interactions that provide a practical framework to comprehend the complexity of human function.
- Develop an exhaustive Examination scheme for routinely obtaining biomechanical vital signs.
- Apply Differential Diagnostic techniques to traditional PT examination procedures that results in a more comprehensive movement system evaluation scheme.
- Practically apply Biomechanical Examination and Evaluation procedures in a competent manner.
- Practically apply evidenced-based manual therapeutic procedures to promote joint mobility and how response to treatment complements the differential diagnostic process.
- Practically apply evidenced-based exercise progressions and how response to treatment complements the differential diagnostic process.
- Practically apply evidenced-based ADL therapeutic activities and how response to treatment complements the differential diagnostic process.
