- Differential Diagnosis for Headaches and Cervical Spine Pain 3
Course release date: 7/10/2023
About the Course:
When evaluating head and neck pain in physical therapy, we must recognize that many conditions share similar signs and symptoms. This course presents information to help the evaluating clinician determine when a client’s symptoms may be the result of systemic or viscerogenic causes and when referral to another healthcare provider is indicated. In addition, this course presents a framework for differentiating and assigning the appropriate diagnosis for neuromuscular and/or musculoskeletal conditions.
- Frozen Shoulder Management and Manual Treatment Strategies 2Release Date: 7/10/23About the course
Shoulder dysfunctions causing painful stiffness are endemic issues, causing clinical challenges and conflicting treatment guidelines. Common terminology of frozen shoulder and adhesive capsulitis share significant and long duration impairments. This advanced course reviews pathophysiology of these conditions, the natural history associated with idiopathic frozen shoulder and essential assessment findings.
Based on updated scientific evidence, a review and compilation of available interventions of conservative, medical and invasive options is presented. The role of manual therapy methodology is featured. Due to variability in patient progress and manual therapy approaches, specific guidelines on type, timing, position and amplitude are investigated to standardize joint mobilization efforts. Finally, treatment program principles of patient education, suggested number of visits, daily clinical visit structure, management of plateaus and beneficial integration with medical/invasive procedures are discussed. The purpose of this course is to provide clinicians with an evidenced- based approach on treating frozen shoulder and associated conditions.
- Kinesiology Taping for Orthopedic Conditions 4Kinesiology taping is redefining the role of therapeutic taping for rehabilitation professionals. Taping was once used to physically hold structures in place; now kinesiology taping is used to influence fascia and underlying neural tissues to cause functional changes in both the local tissue as well as the central nervous system. Often relegated to the athletic world, kinesiology taping has many orthopedic, neurological, pediatric, geriatric, and other specialty applications. Course content will include orthopedic assessment, adjunctive manual therapies, and kinesiology taping for joint mobility and stability applications.
- Screening for Medical Conditions and Adverse Drug Reactions 5Course release date: 7/30/2020
About the Course:

This course is designed for therapists with limited background or training in screening techniques who are interested in learning how to screen patients for serious medical pathology and adverse drug reactions.
