North American Seminars Introduces a New Physical Therapy Continuing Education Course for 2014, Advanced Management of the Lumbar Spine and Pelvic Girdle
Date:12/30/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

Lumbopelvic and hip movement dysfunction represent a large component of physical therapy practice. Yet many of us struggle with explaining how some patients improve and others do not. Developing a perspective regarding the nature of movement dysfunction is the key to improving outcomes. Movement dysfunction should be conceptualized as dysfunction within or between the body’s biomechanical and neuromechanical systems. Biomechanical dysfunction refers to abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system including the osteokinetics and arthrokinematics associated with creating movement. Neuromechanical dysfunction refers to abnormalities associated with the anatomy and physiology of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems influencing movement. The effective intervention for lumbopelvic spine and lower quarter movement dysfunction must integrate all anatomic/physiologic components of the lumbopelvic spine and lower quarter and be multi-system in scope. In other words, the intervention must integrate a biomechanical and neuromechanical perspective.

This two-day, advanced level physical therapy continuing education course provides a unified biomechanic and neuromechanic model with strategies for the examination, evaluation, and intervention of the lumbopelvic spine and hip. The information presented in this course enables the clinician to utilize a new representation of the underlying mechanisms that contribute to lower quarter movement dysfunction. Much lumbopelvic dysfunction is unrecognized secondary to the traditional biomechanical examination and evaluation paradigms. Content for this course includes significant discussion of the scientific basis and rationale for an integrated biomechanical and neuromechanical orientation for rehabilitation.

The PT continuing education course incorporates lecture with substantial laboratory experiences. Laboratory sessions enable the participants to integrate both biomechanical and neuromechanical examination and intervention techniques and strategies for neuromechanical system components associated with movement dysfunction. These include for the nervous system, neurodynamics and the sympathetic component of the autonomic nervous system; the role of muscle facilitation and inhibition associated with the lumbosacral spine and hip; the vestibular system and motor learning. The use of a muscle energy technique is developed and implemented from a biomechanical and neuromechanical outlook.

The strategies developed for examination and intervention provided in this course work well with traditional approaches used for intervention of movement dysfunctions. Course information is immediately relevant and applicable in the clinical setting. Additionally, the concepts and principles learned in this workshop transfer to all movement dysfunction.
