The Rehab Summit is designed to allow for 21 total CE hours. We recognize that with the Federation’s approval, your credit amount will fall short of what the Rehab Summit planning team intended. To help make up for that difference, we would like to offer you complimentary access to two previous Rehab Summit session videos.

In order to receive complimentary access, email the two titles that you would like to view to bridget.miller@pesi.com.

ACL Rehabilitation- Revisiting the Early Stages of Recovery
The session will revisit why the first two phases of post-operative rehabilitation may be the most important. We’ll evaluate the use of open kinetic chain exercise for the post-operative joint and investigate commonly overlooked factors that prevent some patients from returning to their requested level of function.

Linking Injury Rehabilitation & Performance in the Young Throwing Athlete
With a rise in youth shoulder and elbow injuries, rehabilitation of the modern throwing athlete must adapt to the physical demands required by early sport specialization. This session will discuss strategies to integrate sport specific rehabilitation treatments with developmentally appropriate body resistance and motor skill training. By linking athletic development principles throughout the rehabilitation process, young athletes can return to sport with lower injury risk, enhanced athleticism, and improved ability to meet the physical demands of the sport.

Postural & Movement Deficiencies in the Neck & Scapular Region
With more people using computers and cell phones than ever before, neck and shoulder pain are on the rise. Assessing movement-related impairments in these patients/clients is an essential skill in managing musculoskeletal pain. This session will explore postural control mechanisms, myofascial imbalances and how they contribute to pain syndromes. Tools for identifying and treating these dysfunctions will also be discussed.

What If It’s Not BPPV? Vestibular Functional Assessments Translated to Treatment
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is the most well-known form of dizziness, however there are multiple other conditions that can cause symptoms of dizziness, motion sensitivity imbalance, and falls. This session will introduce multiple vestibular functional assessments that can be used to assess each area of the vestibular rehabilitation program. Findings from these assessments will direct the clinician’s clinical decision-making with regard to appropriate treatment techniques to minimize or eliminate dizziness, decrease risk of falls, and restore function.

Non-Surgical Strategies for Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction
The sacroiliac joint as a source of pain has traditionally been controversial. As knowledge about the structure and functions of the joint has advanced, this has changed. It is now reported in literature that the SIJ is the origin of pain in as many as 30% of people presenting with complaints of LBP. Clinically the SIJ can be challenging to evaluate. Assessing pain location and pattern, patient posture and movements, and clusters of manual provocation tests can clarify a working diagnosis of SIJ dysfunction. This course aims to simplify the vast array of options available to clinicians. We will demonstrate the most effective examinations and application of current evidence-based treatment to guide efficient and effective improvements for our patients, clients, and athletes. Through case study and video demonstration, you will walk away with a simple and efficient way to evaluate this region and help improve everyday function for what can be an elusive condition.

Total Shoulder Arthroplasty: The Surgery, The Rehabilitation, The Outcomes
Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (TSA) and Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (R TSA) have increased by 243% in the last decade and will steadily climb with the emergence of the baby boomer generation. In addition, over 1/3 of all TSA and R TSA patients are under the age of 64. As outcomes have steadily increased with the advancement of surgical techniques, therapy protocols for the TSA patient have remained stagnant and redundant. This lecture will discuss the techniques used by surgeons to access the shoulder, common prosthesis used for TSA and R TSA, and a peer reviewed “gold standard” 3-phase protocol to ensure aggressive therapy services and functional outcomes. We will discuss the risks from delaying total shoulder arthroplasty and the benefits from immediate therapy. We will also study the emergence of younger patients electing for total shoulder arthroplasty and their ability to return to normal activity including sports.
