    Advanced Workshop - Positional Release Therapy - Lecture

    Positional Release Therapy (PRT) also known by its parent term, "strain/counterstrain" is a form of manual medicine that resolves pain and tissue dysfunction. Through positioning the body and tissue in positions of comfort, the neurological system can be manipulated to interrupt the pain spasm cycle and over time, to reset the resting length of tissue in a "normal" range, which promotes increase in strength, performance and function.  Essentially, PRT is the opposite of stretching.  Through PRT, tissues are pushed together, compressed and manipulated, to decrease tension and unkink the tissue muscle fibers by decreasing the neural activation of them by both mechanically shortening them and also by changing the neurochemical bonding formed due to pain and inflammation.  The primary goal of PRT is to promote a positive healing environment by correcting musculoskeletal and neurological imbalances to facilitate tissue regeneration, growth, and repair in order for the body to self-correct itself.

    Register for this lecture workshop to learn more about this multi-faceted osteopathic approach to treating both acute and chronic pain.  The cost for the lecture course is $50.  This course will be limited to 50 registrants.  Upon completion of the lecture, attendees will receive 2 EBPs provided by the PRTI.  There is not an additional certificate for the lecture component.

    Register for this lab where you will learn how to apply the hands-on technique as presented in the PRT lecture with an orthopedic, biomechanical and physical modality approach.  This lab is being offered for $75.  This option is available to 25 registrants.  Upon conclusion of the lab, attendees will receive 2 EBPs and a Certificate of Completion provided by the PRTI.

    Advanced Workshop - Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation

    After an acute injury or orthopedic injury, the decreased activity during the initial phases of recovery results in a loss of muscle quantity and quality.  ACSM guidelines to maximize strength and hypertrophy recommend loads of 65% IRM or greater.  Unfortunately, these parameters are not tolerated by patients in the early stages of rehabilitation.  The use of Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR)  can augment the results seen when exercising at the light loads (15-30% IRM) available in a rehabilitation setting  via application of a tourniquet to the proximal limb.  The applied vascular occulsion creates the anaerobic environment we typically see with heavy load (60-85% IRM) lifting. 

    Register for this workshop for an additional fee of $75 to learn more about the process and application that comes with administering Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation.  This workshop will be limited to 50 registrants.  Attendees will also receive a Certificate of Completion including 2 Category A CEUs.

    PLEASE NOTE: THIS SESSION WILL CONCLUDE AT 8 PM.

    Hit The Hill Legislative Day

    The CATA's Hit-the-Hill Day in Sacramento is the largest lobbying event for the athletic training profession in California.  This year we will have a large number of certified athletic trainers and athletic training students from across the state assigned to meetings with state legislators and their staff to advocate for the profession of athletic training

    Hit-the-Hill is an extremely important and impactful day for our profession and our Governmental Affairs efforts.  Even if you have never attended before, we welcome you to join us, learn about the issues at hand, and share your support for the athletic training profession with your voice on the Hill!

    Hit-the-Hill Day is an all-day event.  It is important to be present at the 7 am CEU introduction meeting and be available for appointments with legislators throughout the day.  We will have a raffle for prizes during the social at 4 pm for anyone who has participated with us all day.  If you have any scheduling questions or concerns, please contact Laura Jassowski at CATA.HTH@gmail.com
