From Rehab to Performance: Thrower's Shoulder and Elbow
Evan Hauger, DPT, CSCS, SFG1 | Click here for information about Evan Hauger
The mechanics of repetitive throwing often results in structural change, dysfunction, and pain. If you're not taking these changes into consideration, you are venturing down the wrong path for rehab. Explore the unique kinetic demands of throwing and key anatomy components influencing shoulder and elbow function. Get direct access to the blueprint for assessments and interventions that address the specific needs of these ball slinging athletes. You'll learn to develop exercise progression programs focused on restoring functional mobility and building strength to appropriately endure those forces.

You May be Rehabbing UE Tendons Wrong
Aaron Crouch, DPT, CSCS, SFG1 | Click here for information about Aaron Crouch
Reframe your perspective and develop a more resilient tendon system with today's best and most effective loading principles that are not consistently utilized in rehab. It is frustrating when progress is slow, but with this paradigm, you'll simplify what actually works for rehabbing tendon pain and confidently educate the client with realistic expectations. This systematic approach to evaluating movement dysfunction emphasizes the more meaningful limiting factors in movement dysfunction that produce better outcomes for UE tendinopathy. Improve your clinical decision-making skills on exercise progression and regression that ensure safety and improvements for patients of all ages and abilities.

Day 2 | February 28

Manual Therapy for Frozen Shoulder
Theresa Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS | Click here for information about Theresa A. Schmidt
With a lack of understanding, clinicians may painfully and forcibly mobilize with disregard for the myofascial component of AC. This often negatively impacts future functional activity. Learn proven manual therapy techniques that significantly improve outcomes for frozen shoulder. You'll be better equipped to help your patient with mobility, circulation and pain management for peak functional performance.

Developing Speed and Rotational Power
Evan Hauger, DPT, CSCS, SFG1 | Click here for information about Evan Hauger
Movement dysfunction associated with rotation creates energy leaks that lead to a variety of pathologies. The ability to create and train for rotational power translates across many sports and functional activities. Dive into the specific assessments and evaluation techniques that are best for working with rotational athletes. These targeted techniques will enhance your clinical decision making as you progress from creating motion and building strength to developing speed and power. Using specific and diverse sports examples, you will better select appropriate interventions that span the movement continuum from motion, to strength, to speed/power, to performance.

Barbell Rehab for Overhead Athletes
Aaron Crouch, DPT, CSCS, SFG1 | Click here for information about Aaron Crouch
Get a blueprint for advancing treatment, exercise, and performance training for all types of clients with new and integrative approaches for barbell athletes. As you better understand the physical demands to safely and effectively utilize the barbell, you can place emphasis on more meaningful limiting factors in movement dysfunction that produce better outcomes. Experience an interactive exercise progression and regression model with applications for rehab and performance. With this clear decision-making process, you'll leave no stone unturned in the development of human function and performance. Best of all? This approach works for all patient demographics, from geriatric clients that strive to maintain independence to Elite Athletes attempting to improve performance and reduce injury risk.

Sleep and Performance
Nick Lambe | Click here for information about Nick Lambe
When it comes to sleep – quality, quantity, and timing – they ALL matter. When your patient is not getting the sleep they need, it leads to an increased risk of injury alongside slowed recovery and reaction time. Learn strategies to combat insomnia and circadian misalignments to give them the physiological edge they need to heal and excel.
