Interprofessional Fall Risk Management: We > Me3$9010/22/2017N/A

Interprofessional Fall Risk Management: We > MeDescription

The population is aging and the rate of older adult falls continues to increase. Effective fall risk management is strengthened by interprofessional prevention strategies. This course provides OTs, SLPs, and PTs with a shared foundation of knowledge about older adult falls, fall risk factors, and prevention strategies in healthcare settings and community-based programming. This shared knowledge facilitates complementary and collaborative teamwork to reduce older adult fall risk and provide patient-centered care. The course covers the principles of interprofessional collaborative teamwork, as well as the STEADI fall prevention resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to support interprofessional fall risk screening, assessment and management. Each professor also discusses discipline-specific falls risk screening and assessment tools to improve referral and understanding of OT, SLP and PT contributions to fall prevention.

The Shoulder in Sports3$9008/10/2017N/A
The Shoulder in SportsThis course is comprised of the lectures below. Click on the lecture title for more details.

Swimmers, Golfers and Tennis Players

Description

This course examines the basic mechanics and pathomechanics in the freestyle swim stroke, the tennis serve and the golf swing, with a focus on the shoulder. The clinical implications of the pathomechanics are analyzed, and exercises to consider for swimmers, tennis players and golfers are discussed. Dr. Pink provides evidence of the integral differences in the unique mechanics of each sport, and she demonstrates the need for the clinician to understand the mechanics and pathomechanics of each of them. Goals & Objectives: At the completion of this lecture, the learner will be able to:
  1. Explain why the mechanics and pathomechanics of a sport are important in designing a treatment program for an athlete involved in that sport.
  2. Describe the significant differences and clinical implications during the freestyle stroke for the normal and painful shoulder.
  3. Explain the statistically significant differences and the clinical inferences in swimmers and matched controls in shoulder laxity, instability, impingement, range of motion and pain.
  4. Describe the subtle signs of injury in the freestyle swimmer.
  5. Identify the muscular activity in the shoulder during the tennis serve, as well as the clinical implications.
  6. Explain the power transfer in the swim stroke, tennis serve and golf swing.
Prerequisites: None mandatory; strongly recommended, however: The Shoulder Complex

Baseball Pitchers

Description

This course differentiates the "overhead athlete" from the overhand pitcher. Dr. Pink first discusses the history of pitching and injury incidence (relative to pitching volume and rule changes) from 1876 forward. The course then describes the biomechanics and the muscle firing patterns in the overhand pitcher. Next, Dr. Pink identifies subtle signs of injury, so that the clinician can minimize the risk of anatomic injury. Finally, this information is translated to youth in pitching, which is the most common pitcher seen in PT clinics. Goals & Objectives: At the completion of this lecture, the learner will be able to:
  1. Describe good mechanics of pitching.
  2. Explain the muscle firing patterns in the shoulder while pitching.
  3. Identify the shoulder muscles at risk for injury in pitchers.
  4. Describe the causes of shoulder injury in youth pitchers.
  5. Identify the subtle signs of injury in a pitcher’s shoulder.
Prerequisites: None mandatory; strongly recommended, however: The Shoulder Complex

The Shoulder Complex: Mechanics, Muscle Function and Exercise1.5$4508/10/2017N/A
The Shoulder Complex: Mechanics, Muscle Function and ExerciseThis course thoroughly examines the shoulder complex and how mechanics, muscle function and exercise demonstrate the synchrony of the anatomical components of both the muscular and skeletal structures of the shoulder girdle, including the scapula and glenohumeral joints, as well as the muscles utilized to move these joints. Dr. Pink integrates and discusses electromyographic and cadaver data supporting the biomechanical data, and she describes the shoulder in both static and dynamic conditions. The course concludes with a series of electromyographically-proven optimal exercises for the shoulder group. Goals & Objectives: At the completion of this lecture, the learner will be able to:
  1. Describe the axis of rotation of the humeral head on the glenohumeral complex in the non-pathological shoulder.
  2. Describe the static and dynamic influences on the axis of rotation.
  3. Identify the muscular components of the shoulder, as well as the function of each component that affects the outcome of motion.
  4. Identify the four glenohumeral Protectors and the functional characteristics of each Protector.
  5. Identify the four scapular Pivoters and the functional characteristics of each Pivoter.
  6. Explain why muscular balance at the glenohumeral complex is a myth.
