The APA, in conjunction with the University of Canberra Student Led Association Physiotherapy (SLAP), would like to invite you a tendinopathy night.
The evening will start with a social BBQ before Angie Fearon and Jack Mest take us to the world of tendinopathy.
Jack will present his research on the psychology of tendinopathy and present a case study on achilles tendinopathy while Angie will present her work on glute tendinopathy, also including a case study.
Lauren Christie PHD candidate from The University of Sydney will present an overview of CIMT and discuss factors influencing the implementation and sustainability of Constraint Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) programs in upper limb rehabilitation for people with stroke and traumatic brain injury.
Please note: This is a live webinar. Login instructions including link details will be sent to registrants on the day of the event. If login instructions are not received by midday on the day of the lecture to contact us on email@example.com
Frozen shoulder has been defined as “difficult to treat, difficult to define, and difficult to explain” (Ernest Codman 1934). Nearly a century later, many MSK clinicians still echo this sentiment (often Jared included). But, what does the evidence actually say and does frozen shoulder actually have an unwarranted mysterious reputation? Jared contends much is known about frozen shoulder and there is an accumulating evidence base that supports physiotherapy intervention.
This course is an opportunity to enhance skills in managing neck disorders of various complexity that may also be associated with headache, jaw pain, and dizziness.The course draws on knowledge from research (neuromuscular, exercise, pain; sciences), clinical anatomy, and clinical expertise, to enhance your knowledge regarding the unique characteristics of the neck in states of health and impairment within a biopsychosocial framework. A systematic approach to the assessment and rehabilitation of cervical disorders is taken. While managing neck pain often requires a multi-factorial approach, one particular challenge is in the early identification of key functional deficits and relevant impairments that underlie the patient's disorder. A particular focus of this course is purposeful assessment skills to guide the appropriate use of patient education and physical therapies to address these identified functional deficits and impairments. In particular a key to successful exercise prescription is to guide individualised, manageable exercise plans that are adequately progressed to meet the patients' individual needs. The course will be focused on a structured management approach appropriate for all problematic cervical disorders including whiplash associated disorders.
Musculoskeletal screening forms are now compulsory for entry into many full time courses offered by dance-based tertiary and performing arts institutions. Physiotherapists must therefore be proficient in accurate completion of the form, and be confident to advise the dancer of any corrective exercises needed. This course will instruct the physiotherapist in the accepted standardised methods of measuring and recording the musculoskeletal parameters required on the TDC form and for pre pointe screenings. It will ensure measurements are standardised for physiotherapists working with dancers to allow comparisons and possible inferences to be made regarding optimal ranges of motion for each parameter.
