Title of Event:
# 139 Current Surgical and Rehabilitation Trends in the Advances of Joint Arthroplasty for the Shoulder, Hip and Knee

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
October 2, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Greensboro, NC (Hampton Inn Greensboro Airport)

Summary of Event:
This seminar explains surgery, from traditional to cutting edge techniques, in addition to evidence-based rehab and return to activity guidelines. The World Health Organization has coined the years 2000-2010 the “Bone and Joint Decade.’’ Joint Arthroplasty is expected to double by the year 2020. The rise in joint replacement surgery, coupled with advances in cutting edge surgical techniques such as Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) and less invasive procedures, has allowed the Orthopedists the ability for precise alignment and sparing of tissue. The questions for us as therapists: Are we educationally ready to provide current and progressive rehabilitation for the rising joint replacement population? Joint replacement surgeries are on the rise and the patient today is quite different than the traditional patient we all learned about in school. With all these precautions and restrictions, the goal is to rehabilitate in order to dress, groom and perform self-care. Today, the “Baby Boomer” joint replacement patient has a much higher expectation of their rehabilitation provider.

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
November 14-15, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Raleigh, NC WakeMed Health & Hospitals

Summary of Event:
Cervical spine movement dysfunction, regardless of the specific etiology (chronic or acute disc dysfunction, spondylitic changes, or postural dysfunction) requires an integrated understanding of the processes producing the dysfunction(s) and the strategies to address the resulting movement dysfunctions.This 2-day lecture and lab workshop provides an understanding of the power and influence of the biomechanic and neuromechanic integration with cervical spine movement dysfunction. It incorporates these components with a dynamic control model for examination, evaluation, and intervention. Content for this course includes discussion of the research basis for examination and intervention of movement dysfunction using the interplay of static and dynamic movement as the organizing strategy. This includes not only the musculoskeletal system but also all 3 components of the nervous system. Additionally, the role of muscle facilitation and inhibition and neuroplasticity are engaged.
