Friday, April 21, 2017:  
8:00 AM - 4:30 PM

General Session:
Knee, Foot and Ankle: Treating Walkers, Runners and Athletes that Need to Run
Description: This general session will discuss the current evidence as it pertains to specific impairments that effect walking or running gait. The program will be divided into four sections, with each presenter focusing on the knee or foot and ankle. Those with articular cartilage injury of the knee have reduced functional performance and activity participation compared with peers. The goal of a comprehensive rehabilitation program is to minimize persistent impairments that may influence the overall success of recovery especially after surgical care. Those who have muscle imbalance and performance deficits may not walk let alone run delaying functional recovery. A portion of this lecture will bring to light the common debilitating foot condition associated with flat foot deformity. Relevant patho-anatomical, imaging, biomechanical and clinical trial framework for a sound “evidence-based” treatment for patients with posterior tibialis tendinopathy will be presented. Critical intervention dose will be discussed.
Speakers: Kornelia Kulig, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Mark Paterno, PT, PhD, BA, SCS; Stephen Paulseth, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC; Susan Sigward, PT, PhD, ATC

Concurrent Breakout Sessions:  

Following the general session on Friday, four concurrent breakout sessions will be offered. The registrant will attend three out of four breakout sessions following the morning general session, based on order of preference indicated on the registration form. Note: space is limited, and therefore the attendee’s breakout session assignments will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Saturday, April 22, 2017
7:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Rise-and-Learn Optional Session
Day to Day Data - What Role can it Play in Practice Change!
Description:  There is a unique role for all players on a rehabilitative team from frontine treating therapist to clinic directors in improving patient outcomes through standardization of the physical therapy care process. Using total knee arthroplasty rehabilitation as a model, the speakers will highlight key elements in a care process improvement project resulting in better outcomes for patients. From patient reported outcomes to better function, patients benefit when the team approach to care delivery is embraced. The resources needed, the responsibilities of each team member (clinicians and directors) and the challenges and opportunities of this type of approach will be covered. Rich discussion will follow. Come start your day and have your breakfast with us at our Rise and Learn.
Speakers: Gerard Brennan, PT, PhD and Tara Jo Manal PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, FAPTA

General Session:
Shoulder Pain Clinical Practice Guidelines and Treatment: Surgery First and Rehabilitation Controversies?
Description:  This general session will review the shoulder pain classification used to develop the Shoulder Pain Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) written by the Orthopaedic Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. The session will focus on decision making with regard to classification and present mounting evidence and controversy over which patients need surgery and when for rotator cuff tear and subacromial pain, shoulder instability, and a subcategory of SLAP tears. The program will be divided into four sections, and overview of the shoulder classification, then each presenter focusing on a diagnostic classification of rotator cuff tear and subacromial pain, shoulder instability, and a subcategory of SLAP tears.
Speakers: Jeff Houck, PT, PhD, Lori Michener, PT, PhD, ATC, SCS, FAPTA, Amee Seitz, PT, PhD, DPT, OCS, and Charles Thigpen, PT, PhD, ATC
