Summary of Event:
Complete all Three Sessions for 10 Contact Hours (1.0 CEUs)July 13 - 6:30 to 10 pm EST July 14 - 6:30 to 10 pm EST July 15 - 6:30 to 9:30 pm EST. This engaging course taught by Melissa Gerber, OTD, OTR/L dives into visual anatomy, assessment, and treatment for therapists in a wide range of settings (school-based, acute care, rehab, LTC facilities). Neurological insults such a stroke and TBIs can have a profound effect on visual skills, perception and processing. Additionally, 60-80% of children with learning disabilities have undiagnosed vision problems because vision is more than just visual acuity. As therapists, we may be the first to pick up on these deficits. Treatments, strategies, and tools to improve visual deficits will be stressed. Telehealth will be discussed with resources for coaching parents and caregivers.

Summary of Event:
This 2-day course begins by teaching the fundamentals of lymph anatomy and physiology in addition to the identification, staging and classification of lymphedema. This course emphasizes the benefits of utilizing manual lymph drainage for patients with pelvic pain. Participants will be instructed in the lymph transport aspect for Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) that emphasizes pelvic lymphatic decongestion to be utilized in conjunction with current interventions for pelvic pain. This approach can be used for a variety of pelvic floor dysfunctions including: painful pelvic congestion, bladder syndrome, endometriosis, vulvodynia, vaginissmus, abdominal inflammatory conditions and many more. Course attendees will learn how to examine the lymphatic system, how to integrate concepts of pelvic lymphatic dysfunction with common pelvic pain diagnoses, as well as how and when to apply appropriate manual lymphatic drainage techniques for specific patient presentations. An emphasis is placed on hands-on practice with MLD, and several hours within the continuing education course are devoted to lab activities. The labs include both external genitalia and internal vaginal lymphatic stimulation. Participants will learn standard lymph drainage protocols and how to adjust and supplement existing protocols with new decongestion MLD techniques for pelvic pain relief. At the end of this 2-day course, attendees will have a well-defined protocol for treating pelvic pain patients using manual lymphatic drainage. Join us to see how a lymphatic therapeutic approach is beneficial for reducing pain in patients with pelvic floor dysfunction.
