Registration Fee:   $52

Identify the principles behind The Meeks Method for the management of the patient with osteoporosis. Identify the guidelines for management of the patient with acute spinal compression fracture. Identify appropriate Perch Posture, Hip Hinge and Safe Sit-To-Stand. Identify the difference between Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty and be familiar with the results of these procedures. Identify the indications for bracing with the Spinomed III Spinal Orthosis, to understand why this brace is fundamentally different than other types of bracing and how its use is part of a comprehensive program of osteoporosis management.

Introduction to The Meeks Method Experience of functional sit-to-stand/stand-to-sit movement Discussion of Site-Specific exercise Introduction to bracing with the Spinomed Spinal Orthosis for Osteoporosis Osteoporosis statistics, pathology, epidemiology and information on osteoporosis-related fracture Vertebro- and Kypho-Plasty Continuation on information on bracing Final Thoughts and Plans

This evidence-based, experiential, active and participatory 1.5-hour webinar will focus on the management of the patient with osteoporosis with a focus on bracing with the Spinomed Spinal Orthosis for Osteoporosis as part of the comprehensive 12-point program of The Meeks Method. This is the only spinal orthosis for osteoporosis that has been supported by a peer-reviewed, published study of its use. The presentation will include an experience of functional movement from and for the bones, a discussion of the importance of site-specific exercise including joint-reaction, ground-reaction and bone-reaction forces, an introduction to bracing with the Spinomed as well as information on the epidemiology and pathology of osteoporosis and fracture including management with vertebro or kypho-plasty.
