Motivations, Inc.

Format(s):   Live Seminars
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy
Contact Hours:   16
Registration Fee:   $495

OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
1.Differentiate pain originating from the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint, and hip, as well as accurately differentiating the tissue at fault in each area (i.e. facet vs. disc vs. muscle, etc).
2.Differentiate between lumbar and sacroiliac hyper and hypo-mobility, and prescribe appropriate treatment for each.
3.Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of joint mobilization techniques for the lumbar spine, SIJ, and hip.
4.Evaluate the hip complex functionally, and apply findings to a treatment program
5.Describe and discuss the functional interaction of the lumbar spine, SIJ, and hip and the implications to treatment for each area
6.Describe current concepts in lumbar stabilization and motor learning as they apply to the treatment of patients with acute LBP, chronic LBP, and SIJ dysfunction.
7.Perform a complete examination of the lumbar spine, SIJ, and hip based on the principles to symptom reproduction and provocation-alleviation testing.

Target Audience
Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants

Differentiation of the source of pain in the lumbo-pelvic region is a common clinical challenge. This course will provide the participant with the tools required to determine the most likely source of their patient’s pain. An integrated approach utilizing the concepts of Cyriax, Maitland, Kaltenborn, and Evjenth, in combination with current best evidence-based practice as described in the literature, will be utilized to form the foundation of an effective treatment approach. Participants will gain a working knowledge of evaluation via selective tissue tension, provocation-alleviation testing, and joint mobility assessment. A strong emphasis will be placed on the clinical reasoning and patient management skills required to translate examination findings into effective treatments, and will include a thorough overview of the use of joint mobilization, traction, patient education, and various modes of exercise as treatments. This course will be lab-intensive due to the nature of the material presented, and will also include lecture and demonstration components.
