Title of Event:
# 306 CAN-EAT Approach …Using medical, motor, & behavioral strategies in pediatric feeding

 

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
September 11-12, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Asheville, NC (Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park)

Summary of Event:
Research indicates that the prevalence of pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders is 80% in the special needs population and 20% in typically developing children. Therefore, most pediatric clinicians will encounter this disorder in some form or another. Feeding disorders come in all shapes and sizes, such as coughing/choking during meals, poor oral-motor skill acquisition, food refusal, oral aversion, g-tube dependence and more. One must be versed in oral-motor and swallowing techniques, respiration, GI issues, nutrition, motor/postural alignment, and behavioral strategies. This is a two-day course focusing on how to approach pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders, how to diagnose and prioritize treatment options, and ensure successful outcomes for you and your patients. Day one will concentrate on medical and nutritional intervention strategies, while day two will focus on evaluation and therapeutic intervention. If child

 

Title of Event:
# 213 Visual Rehabilitation & Neuro Handling After a Neurological Incident… Concepts for Function

Name:

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
May 2-3, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Raleigh, NC (WakeMed Health & Hospital)

Summary of Event:
This 2 day course will discuss the concepts of the physical care and evidence based principals to create results in clinical interventions for stroke, hemiplegia, brain injury, spasticity and general motor control issues. The course will focus on preception and oculomotor deficit remediation and compensation after a neurological event.Hemiparesis handling made easy with a focus on the core in lab work. Lecture information will cover spasticity, UE/LE treatment, and pusher strategies. Lab work will cover facilitations, stretching, a technology lab for neuro rehabilitation function analysis, and midline shift dysfunction (pusher). Functional applications of improvement and carryover of care will be addressed as well as documentation to advocate for a client. The Vision Rehabilitation lab portions will cover ocular motor, visual field, and neglect testing. Functional treatment interventions will be discussed for each of the impairments. Occupational and physical therapists and assistants will find this course to be heavily lab based to provide attendees with skills for immediately use for effective strategies in the clinic. Documentation and advocacy for the client with consideration to the payor is also discussed.

 

Title of Event:
# 179 The MEEKS METHOD® Management of Spinal Pathology: Optimal Alignment for Osteoporosis, Spinal Stenosis, Scoliosis, and Back Pain

 

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
February 22-23, 2020

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

Summary of Event:
In this two day course, developed bv Sara Meeks, our faculty presents her innovative, effective, S.A.F.E.**, site-specific comprehensive program for management of the patients with osteoporosis, osteopenia, and postural problems which is also useful for spinal stenosis and back pain. The program includes a complete patient assessment, site-specific exercise program, postural correction, balance, gait, body mechanics during activities of daily living, use of foam rollers for balance and core strengthening, scapular stabilization exercises with resistance band, information on use of treatment modalities as they pertain to osteoporosis, and guidelines for advanced exercises (e.g., in the gym, Yoga, Pilates etc.).

 

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.

 

Title of Event:
# 116 Cervical Spine Evaluation, Examination, and Intervention: Functional Integration

 

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

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.
