Hip & Knee Total Joint Replacement Surgery - New Options for Pain Management
Speaker: Terry Rzepkowski, DPT, MS, BS

Pain management that seemed impossible just a few years ago is now the new reality for today's total joint candidate. New advances allow for same-day surgical discharge and the reduced need for narcotic pain killers. In this session, we will examine the new strategies and techniques for total hip and knee patients' post-op pain management. You'll also gain a crucial understanding of the drug interactions associated with commonly prescribed post-op medications…and how you can use that to improve patient recovery. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops, tablets, and smartphones for an online activity

The Aging of Posture: How Age, Gravity, and Dysfunction Contribute and What to Do About It
Speaker: Trent Brown, MOT, OTR/L, BCG, ATP, CFPS

Does your patient's posture appear to be inspired by Picasso? Are your patients reporting pain, dysfunction, falls, and more? Additionally, due to an increasingly sedentary lifestyle and electronic use, forward head posture and excess thoracic kyphosis are becoming more prevalent among ALL age groups. Dive into the anatomical and functional contributions to dysfunctional posture. We will analyze imaging of common pelvic, thoracic and cervical postural dysfunction. Finally, fill your toolbox with evidence-based treatment strategies to inhibit, lengthen, and activate specific structures for long-term successful correction of the most common postural deviations seen in the clinical setting.

Myofascial Therapy: Program Design to Promote Flexibility & Function Across the Lifespan
Speaker: Theresa A. Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS

Improve your patients' quality of life by incorporating myofascial therapy into rehab. Gain breakthrough evidence-based techniques that you can use to achieve improved flexibility and function with video demonstrations and interventions you can apply immediately. This session will teach you how to transform activity limitations and promote function across the lifespan.

Natural Interventions for Pain: Trigger Point Release Therapy
Speaker: Theresa A. Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS

People often develop habits that produce abnormal strain on the neuromuscular system, resulting in tight bands of abnormal muscle contraction known as trigger points (TPs). These TPs contribute to neck pain, headaches, back pain, and even functional disability. The cause of TPs is often overlooked or simply not addressed. If addressed, many use compression only to find they return shortly after the session. Discover a superior management strategy by the examination of the physiology of trigger points and the significance in the neuromotor system. Arm yourself with a variety of techniques for successful clinical outcomes and happy patients!
