HAPTA Spring Conference 2014
SB Seminars, LLC
Instructors: Dr. John N Flood, FACOS, FAOAO Dr. Scott Benjamin
Course Title: Day One: Surgery of the Neck and Shoulder:
Rehabilitation of the neck and shoulder following common surgeries (i.e. Rotator cuff, labrum, bicep tenodesis, neck fusion, neck total disc replacement).
Course Title: Day Two: Surgeries for the lumbar spine, knee.
Rehabilitation of the pelvis, trunk, hips, and lumbar spine following common surgeries (lumbar laminectomy, fusion and total disc replacement, spinal stenosis, new spinal procedures, ankle pathologies and how they relate the lumbar spine and pelvis.
Both days: Include surgical pitfalls and what not to do from a surgical prospective:
Both days will include: Clinical reasoning, Differential diagnosis, and hypothesis and illness script determined diagnosis and treatment. (What is truly wrong and how to fix it)
The principal investigator will be bringing with the Multifidus Muscle Integrator (MMI) This patented machine will isolate the lumbar deep and superficial multifidus in 3 different angles, variable planes of motion and also with various resistances. The machine will also provide up to 110# of force for each side of the spine.
- The participants will learn about critical thinking and how to arrive at a particular diagnosis for the upper and lower quarter; illness scripts will be discussed the participants will learn about how to derive a differential diagnosis.
- Review of anatomy of the cervical spine, shoulder, lumbar spine, pelvis and hips will be provided.
- The participant will learn the anatomy regarding the ankle and common pathologies that are known and also how this affects the hips and lower back.
- The participants will learn about the proper surgical techniques for common cervical, shoulder and lumbar spine surgeries.
- The participant will learn about common cervical surgeries but also what rehabilitation is needed post-surgical.
- The participants will learn about common shoulder rehabilitation time lines, what rehabilitation is proper for certain conditions and also what to avoid in therapy.
- The participants will learn about what lumbar spine surgeries will need rehabilitation and also what time lines are needed for post surgical rehabilitation (i.e. Fusion, laminectomy, TDA, spinal stenosis) and what to avoid during rehabilitation.
- The participants will learn about what protocols to avoid for patients that have had cervical or lumbar spine surgeries.
- The participants will learn about shoulder pit falls and what to avoid after certain surgical interventions.
- The participants will learn about what rehabilitation is proper for patients with LBP, and shoulder pain that does not require surgery.
- The participants will learn about when to stop rehabilitation and what happens when an injury occurs during rehabilitation.
- Participants will review and learn topographical anatomy for the cervical spine and shoulder.
- Participants will review the topographical anatomy for the shoulder.
- Participants will review the topographical anatomy for the lumbar spine, pelvis, hips and knee.
- Participants will see how a surgeon evaluates an ankle, hip, lumbar spine, shoulder and neck.
- Participants will learn how to perform a full biomechanical evaluate for a neck patient post surgery.
- Participants will learn how to perform a biomechanical evaluation for shoulder patient.
- Participants will learn how to evaluate a lumbar spine patient post surgery and how to perform a biomechanical examination.
- Participants will learn how to evaluate a hip and S-I that has not had surgery.
- Participants will systematically learn how to work on patients who have not had surgery for their shoulder (i.e., soft tissue injuries) and also what to do if they have had surgery.

"The Credentialed Clinical Instructor Program (CCIP) is intended for health care providers who work primarily in a clinical setting and are interested in developing their teaching abilities. Participants will explore different aspects of the clinical learning environment and will learn skills and techniques necessary to provide a structured and effective learning environment for students. The goal is not to improve individual clinical skills, but to develop and each refine participant's ability to teach, instruct, and guide the development of his or her students.
CCIP courses are taught throughout the year in both Canada and the United States, and enrollment is open to physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. Clinicians from other health care professions are also welcome to participate - courses regularly include speech therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, and more.
Successful completion of the course provides physical therapists and physical therapist assistants with 1.5 CEU's and the Clinical Instructor (CI) Credential. Healthcare providers from other professions are eligible to receive 1.2 CEU's, but may not be awarded the CI Credential."
