This course is over 75% lab experience with Sandy L. Burkart PT, OCS, PhD who will provide each practitioner with an understanding of the functional, biomechanical, radiographic, pathological, and diagnostic anatomy of the cervical spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand as it relates to orthopedic dysfunction and rehabilitation. The workshop will provide each practitioner with neuromotor control elements of human posture and function as it relates to the evaluation and rehabilitation of upper extremity orthopedic dysfunction. Clinical strategies for rehabilitation integrating manual therapy with neuromotor strategies to modulate pain, increase ROM, increase strength, and improve function will be presented and demonstrated. A workshop manual to include workshop content, educational resources, and evidence based references will be provided.
1. List similarities and differences in an Integrated Movement Systems model for the rehabilitation of cervical spine and upper extremity dysfunction with traditional manual therapy and exercise approaches.
2. Demonstrate how to integrate and synthesize the role of motor control stability training in the reduction of pain, increasing range of motion, and for restoring functional movement associated with a frozen shoulder, impingement syndrome, rotator cuff repairs, scapular dyskinesis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, elbow fractures and dislocations, colles fractures, and selected hand injuries
3. Demonstrate spinal and peripheral joint stabilization techniques, differentiated and non-differentiated movements, integrated manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, awareness through movement strategies, imagery and biofeedback techniques, and functional training modules to restore posture, balance, and gait dysfunctions.
4. Name selected scientific and evidenced based papers supporting the use of an Integrated Movement Systems Practice Model in the evaluation and treatment of upper quarter cervical dysfunctions.
