This two day; hands on intensive seminar is designed to develop clinical assessment and treatment skills in advanced concepts of pain management and dysfunction in the upper quadrant.

Course Description


This two day hands on intensive seminar is designed to develop clinical assessment and treatment skills in advanced concepts of pain management and dysfunction in the upper quadrant. This course will combine an efficient examination process to effectively differentiate between musculoskeletal and neurological sources of pain in order to identify and sequence a custom treatment plan tailored to the dysfunction. Hands on lab sessions will further facilitate proper examination and treatment interventions involving evidence based special testing, neuromobilization, manual therapy, orthotic interventions and exercise prescription. Finally, case scenarios will be incorporated to pair clinical reasoning to situations that are encountered in the clinical setting. The purpose of this seminar is to allow the clinician to move from protocol derived treatment to professional assessment and treatment of the nervous system and the interfacing musculoskeletal system. The emphasis is on creative solutions to difficult problems by integrating neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and kinesiological principles creating a fresh approach to difficult patient problems resulting in improved functional outcomes and patient satisfaction.

Objectives

  • Identify complex neurophysiological sources of pain and distinguish between acute, chronic, referred and neuropathic pain conditions.
  • Demonstrate an effective Upper Quadrant Screening that will locate proximal pain generators.
  • Demonstrate soft tissue and joint mobilizations, exercise prescription and activity adaption germane to resolving issues of the thoracic outlet.
  • Identify neuraldynamic theory as applied to the integration of nerve assessment and intervention designed to resolve difficult pain issues.
  • Identify rehabilitation strategies for upper quadrant pain conditions that considers the client's cultural, social and environmental context enabling the individual client to return to maximum functional independence.
