Mike Reiman: Strength and Conditioning for the Practicing Clinician

Aug 4,2018 - Aug 5,2018 Time: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Strength and Conditioning for the Practicing Clinician

Exercise prescription and progression are paramount clinical skills to the practicing clinician. The majority of literature discussing strength and conditioning principles is founded in the athletic and personal training environments without much concern for pathology. This course will discuss strength and conditioning principles in normal individuals as well as those with pathology. Healing restraints and guidelines will be discussed. The attending participant will have the opportunity to trial various exercises cognizant of different pathologies and utilize clinical decision making to differentiate how to modify strength and conditioning principles to an individual with pathology. Case studies will be utilized to support the course participants knowledge of the material. Additionally, open discussions on pros and cons of various exercises will be utilized. This will be a very interactive class with participants performing exercises to their tolerance. Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:
  1. Describe strength and conditioning parameters best suited for various client goals (e.g. strength, endurance, power, balance).
  2. Describe healing time-frames, restraints and cautions dependent on injured tissue (e.g. tendon, ligament, cartilage, bone).
  3. Describe and implement a training program for a client rehabilitating from injury involving various tissue injuries (e.g. tendon, ligament, bone).
  4. Describe and modify a training program based on psycho-social issues of the rehabilitation client.
  5. Utilizing case studies, write a rehabilitation program for an injured client with respect to healing restraints, occupation/sport, psycho-social environment, etc.

Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Series-Richmond

Sep 15,2018 - Feb 17,2019 Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This series of continuing education programs is based on a clinical reasoning model and emphasizes evidence-based examination and treatment.  The course series covers all body regions and incorporates a variety of interventions. The goal of the series is to provide the physical therapist with a comprehensive continuing professional education course and fully prepare them for the ABPTS Orthopedic Clinical Specialty Examination.   This framework will enable the participant to practice in a more efficient and focused manner through the development of clinical skills and a clinical reasoning thought process. The student to instructor (7:1 max), repetition of examination and treatment techniques, and the opportunity to practice clinical reasoning skills will enhance comprehension and retention. Case studies will assist with clinical pattern formation along with the integration of different manual therapy approaches. The use of continuous open discussion will facilitate student/instructor feedback. The course series will provide the clinician with the opportunity to develop the tools to learn from every patient they encounter.
