Franklin, TN (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
This two-day physical therapy continuing education course is designed to provide the medical professional with the information needed to develop a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for the lumbopelvic region. This PT continuing education course begins with a review of the functional anatomy of the lumbar spine, lumbo sacral junction and the pelvic girdle. The biomechanical and musculoskeletal relationships between the structures are explored and an in-depth analysis of functional and dysfunctional biomechanics is thoroughly covered.
By engaging the participants in laboratory exercises, the fundamentals of lumbopelvic dysfunctions are exposed. In-depth analysis of the biomechanics of the lumbar spine, iliosacral and sacroiliac joints are presented as the basis for evaluation of alignment within the lumbopelvic region. Through extensive lab exercises, the participants are led through a systematic approach to identifying functional versus dysfunctional motion and are led through a series of hands on activities to develop comprehensive management approaches to restoring optimal biomechanical function. Each dysfunction discussed is followed by treatment solutions that include a systematic manual therapy approach utilizing joint mobilizations as well as muscle energy and stabilization exercises. Dysfunctions such as hypo/hypermobility, disc disorders, facet arthropathy, positional faults, stenosis, compression fractures, muscle imbalances, upslips, downslips and pelvic rotations are thoroughly covered.
Through use of extensive manual techniques and exercises, participants will learn to restore a patients function and spinal alignment. The illustrated course manual provides step-by-step instructions that assist the clinician to immediately and confidently apply the new skills to their clinical setting. By combining this comprehensive assessment and treatment approach participants will understand the importance of identifying specific dysfunctions in a timely manner. Proper timing of specific rehabilitation techniques will facilitate effective treatment outcomes. Participants of this course will be able to effectively treat lumbopelvic dysfunction by achieving significant results in fewer treatment sessions.
This physical therapy continuing education course will be presented by Brian Nalazek, OMPT, PT, CWT. He graduated with department honors with a bachelor of science in physical therapy from the Oakland University in Rochester, MI in 1990. He completed his orthopedic manual physical therapy residency program (based from the Kaltenborn/Evjenth Nordik System) in 1999. He received his certificate of completion from the IWA as a certified weight trainer in October of 2003. He is also in the process of completing his Advanced Master's Degree in Orthopedics. Brian combines his extensive orthopedic background to the systematic approach of his teachings. He has been educating in a variety of orthopedic topics for over eight years. Brian successfully set up an orthopedic clinic and has established a community network of physicians and therapists. He also set up a consistent referral base with local physicians due to the successful outcomes he obtains with his orthopedic clients.
Brian's approach to orthopedic dysfunction combines an eclectic approach of joint mobilizations, muscle re-education, manual therapy, exercise and education.
North American Seminars also offers physical therapy continuing education courses online in this clinical area.
