COURSE 1: Introduction to Ultrasound Imaging for Musculoskeletal Conditions
Doug White, PT, DPT, OCS, RMSK
Co-presenter: Genevieve Correa, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT 

Do you ever wonder what is really causing your patient’s pain and dysfunction?
How good are your palpation skills? You’d be surprised…
How can I better manage the care of my patients?
The answers to these questions will be learned in this musculoskeletal ultrasound course.

This 4-hour hands-on course will introduce the use of ultrasound imaging in the management of select orthopaedic conditions. There will be discussion about common pathologies and their sonoanatomy. Participants will learn how ultrasound can add value to patient management. Participants will have ample time to learn basic extremity scanning and identification of tissues.

At the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to:
– Demonstrate an understanding of the benefit of diagnostic ultrasound in a clinical physical therapy setting.
– Understand when ultrasound is and isn’t indicated for common conditions.
– Demonstrate introductory ability to scan and identify normal tissue morphology.

COURSE 2:   Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation: More than a Diagonal
Genevieve Correa, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT 

Do you find it difficult at times to get your patients to relax with certain manual treatments? Do you want to enhance your proprioceptive awareness to make treatment easier for yourself and your patient? Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) is based upon its foundation philosophy and principles. PNF is meant to help make movement easier for our patients. This in-person lecture/lab course will include a variety of activities to help you improve your body  mechanics, proprioception via tactile cues, body awareness of self and patient, verbal and visual cues in order to improve your efficiency of your treatment and the longevity of your career.

At the conclusion of the session, participants should be able to:
– Understand the history of PNF in clinical practice.
– Recall the PNF philosophy and principles.
– Understand how PNF philosophy and principles can be applied to clinical cases for improved outcomes.
– Recall the PNF philosophy, principles,  and techniques.
– Apply PNF philosophy and principles to clinical cases for improved outcomes.
– Apply PNF techniques to patient activities.
