Registration: Please email Continuing.Education@Athletico.com
Course description: Applied Functional Science (AFS) consists of the Principles-Strategies-Techniques process for assessing 3planar kinetic chain movement and converting that information directly into movement and exercise strategies for rehabilitation and conditioning. In other words, it is looking at how we truly move in the real world and helping us to functionally train for existing in that world. AFS has been developed and is constantly being refined by Dr. Gary W. Gray, DPT, and collaborators at the Gray Institute, innovators in our understanding of Function and its application in training and health promotion.
Course Objectives: 1. Understand the Principles of AFS.
2. Describe the Strategies of AFS as applied to a variety of patient populations.
3. Develop Treatment Techniques for improving Function in a variety of patient populations.
4. Learn Exercise Strategies for patients and group/community education

Too Hot to Handle – Desensitizing the Hyper-Sensitive Patient With Graded Motor Imagery @ Athletico Paddock Lake
Sep 26 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Instructor: Adriaan Louw, PT, PhD, CSMT of the
International Spine and Pain Institute (ISPI) now partnered with EIM
Date: Saturday September 26th and Sunday September 27th
Location: Athletico Paddock Lake; 25250 75th St, Salem WI 53168

Target Audience: PT, PTA

Deduction from CE Allowance: $459
Course description: This class will focus on treating people with a hypertensive nervous system and clinically “too hot to handle.” With the advent of pain neuroscience exploring issues associate with neuroplasticity, it has become increasingly clear that in a certain patient population, physical touch and movement, essential for recovery, could actually pose a threat. This includes conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS – old RSD), phantom limb pain, peripheral neuropathy, spinal cord injuries, spinal pain and more. With persistent input to the central nervous system and brain, various long-lasting changes occur including cell death, change in brain maps of the body, neurotransmitters, receptors and various pathways associated with pain. These changes manifest themselves with clinical issues such as neglect, allodynia, hyperalgesia, mirror pains, spreading pain, widespread sensitization and problems with laterality recognition. Physical testing of patients with pathological changes in their mapping will include two-point discrimination, pressure-pain threshold testing, nerve palpation, localization, graphesthesia, neurodynamics, laterality and mapping of body parts. The same neuroplastic events associated with pain, however, produce unique avenues to treat patients often too sensitive for physical movement.
The brain’s perception of threat can be altered with cognitions (therapeutic neuroscience education), but also via other senses, directly aiming at the faulty mapping of the brain in pain. Treatments discussed, demonstrated and practiced will include graded motor imagery, sensory discrimination, mirror therapy, graphesthesia and neuroscience education. Various examination and treatment techniques will be shown and practiced during lab sessions that will allow for immediate take home application of treatments. This class is a must for therapists working in a variety of clinical settings dealing with patients “too hot to handle.”
