Franklin, TN (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
California and Nevada licensed physical therapists and physical therapy assistants can contribute to their required continuing medical education hours through five online continuing education courses pre-approved from North American Seminars.
These Online PT continuing education courses have been pre-approved for 10 hours in California and Nevada.
Examination and Treatment of the SI Joint
This PT Online CME course provides detailed description of SI Joint physical examination testing, including how to rule out the lumbar spine and hip joint as potential pain generators. The DVD/Online continuing education content and supplemental written material provide the clinician with great detail on how to perform examination of the SI joint/pelvic girdle, the tests to implement, what patients they should be performed on, what entails a positive (or negative test), and the diagnostic accuracy of such tests.
Each year over 8 million physician and emergency room visits are attributed to complaints of dizziness and imbalance. Symptoms of vestibular disorders can vary greatly from one person to the next and the population range can vary as much as the symptoms. As our population ages many more people will be seeking medical assistance for dizziness and imbalance or injuries due to these complaints. Soldiers returning from combat with post blast or post concussion injuries often have underlying vestibular disorders. The ability for clinicians to perform screening tests for differential diagnosis is critical for the future health and well being of their patients. Only 8% of suspected BBPV patients will have a proper diagnosis prior coming to a therapist. This course will provide a foundation for understanding proper evaluation and treatment techniques for various vestibular conditions.
Examination and Treatment of the Hip Joint
This Online Continuing Education Course for PT and PTAs provides detailed description of hip physical examination testing, including how to rule out other the lumbar spine and SI joint/pelvic girdle as potential pain generators. The DVD/Online and supplemental written material provide the clinician with great detail on how to perform examination of the hip joint, the tests to implement, what patients they should be performed on, what entails a positive (or negative test), and the diagnostic accuracy of such tests.
Utilizing Pilates to Enhance Rehab Outcomes
The key to developing a successful rehabilitation program is to have an understanding of the underlying mechanisms of the specific dysfunction. If the dysfunction is identified, the proper tools can be developed to facilitate a progressive functional rehab program.
This Online Pilates Continuing Education Course has been designed to assist the therapist in understanding the fundamentals of Pilates and how to incorporate the principles into a rehabilitation setting.
