Nov. 2-3, 2019 | Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy Course 3

Course 3: Special Populations, Complementary Exercises,
Motivation, Drug and Nutritional Considerations,
and Marketing

This course will provide information on exercise for special
populations (e.g., those with cancer, frailty, and obesity
and those with cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal,
musculoskeletal, neuromuscular and pulmonary disorders).
Barriers to effective exercise prescription and motivational
strategies for overcoming these barriers will be discussed.
The effects of medications commonly used by aging
adults and their effects on exercise performance will be
reviewed. Nutritional screening and requirements for the
exercising aging adult will be provided. Complementary
exercises will be discussed including aquatics, tai chi,
yoga, and Pilates. Participants will have the opportunity to
perform some of the complementary exercises. Discussion
of equipment needs, marketing and reimbursement, will
facilitate participants’ ability to provide programs in their
own clinical settings.

Nov. 9-10, 2019 | NAIOMT C616 Cervical Spine II

This course utilizes case-based instruction to illustrate cervical spine conditions and their advanced neurophysiological movement assessment. Course work will focus on reason-based development of individualized examinations aimed at patient/client classification into the management of initial diagnosis, progression to a specific neurophysiological movement examination, symptom/intervention/rule-based classification groupings, or referral to another health-care provider. Procedural interventions will include education, manual therapy techniques (including manipulation), and individualized neuromuscular rehabilitation prescription, with the goal of restoring normal function and preventing disability.

Jan. 18-19, 2020 | NAIOMT C511 Lumbopelvic Spine I

This course enhances the ability to make decisions about the lumbopelvic region through safe, effective, and efficient screening examinations. Participants will identify an evidence-informed approach to evaluation and management through concepts of total patient health, function, life-participation, and pain behaviors. Management strategies will include education, activity modification, manual therapy techniques, and individualized neuromuscular rehabilitation prescription, with the goal of restoring optimal function and preventing future impairments.

Apr. 4 & 5, 2020 | Scrape, Tape & Move: Foundation to Function

The Scrape, Tape & Move: Foundation to Function certification course provides a scientific and practical method that introduces an advanced integrated approach to restoring and maximizing the human movement system. While this course is all about treatment, you must enter with a great method of diagnostic assessment. Therefore, we will build from the SFMA model of movement assessment to optimize your toolbox and expand your toolset and incorporate the finest strategies know in the rehabilitation field. Therefore, this course starts up where the SFMA diagnostic course leaves off. It is of paramount importance to come up with the correct movement diagnosis yet after that, health care professions need to have an efficient toolset to maximize their patient care both during their time in the clinic and supplemental home exercise. This Level 2 course teaches healthcare professionals how to use the SFMA and other movement-related findings to guide their interventions – from techniques to restore mobility to reprogramming motor control dysfunctions. With your movement system findings, you can prioritize where to start your treatment plan. This systematic approach will help clinicians to be more efficient and effective while treating movement related dysfunctions.
