Friday Breakout Session Details

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.

Breakout Session #1: Young Runner Unable to Run due to Non-specific Foot Pain"
Speaker: Kornelia Kulig, PT, PhD, FAPTA
Description:  This breakout session expands up the lecture on overuse related tendinopathies and will focus on the physical therapy examination and treatment of a young runner with overuse related foot pain. The session will begin with a description of the case and illustrate the clinical decision making process. Emphasis will be placed on detailed examination of movement strategies followed by manual therapy, movement re-education and exercise interventions to address identified impairments.

Breakout Session #2: Lesion Specific Modified Rehabilitation -How Knee Articular Cartilage Injury can Inform Your Practice
Speaker: Mark Paterno, PT, PhD, BA, SCS
Description: Articular cartilage injuries are present in up to 60% of knees schedule for arthroscopic surgery with a reported incidence of 5-27% of those aged 45 years or younger. Acutely, articular cartilage injury can result in reduction of activity and function in those affected, however, long term the outlook is bleak with poor quality of life and potential for long-term disability. Articular cartilage surgical procedures vary based on lesion and patient characteristics both of which influence the clinical decision making of the physical therapist in post-surgical rehabilitation. The goal of this session is to review the available evidence that guides rehabilitation interventions and apply it to patient specific scenarios. Participating therapists will learn guidelines for the best recovery of muscle strength, performance, gait mechanics, and functional measures which can be used to benchmark your patient’s recovery according to published results.

Breakout Session #3: Advanced Interventions Focused on Treating Foot and Ankle Gait Impairments
Speaker: Stephen Paulseth, PT, DPT, SCS, ATC
Description: This breakout session will focus on the physical therapy examination and treatment of the foot and ankle as it pertains to the walking and running gait. The session will begin with a description of a case report to illustrate the clinical decision making process. Emphasis will be placed on examination and manual therapy, taping techniques, and exercise interventions to address identified gait impairments.

Breakout Session #4: Early Rehabilitation Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: Are We Doing Enough?
Speaker: Susan Sigward, PT, PhD, ATC
Description: Long term strength deficits and altered knee biomechanics following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLr) are a concern as they are attributed to poor function, increased risk for re-injury and development of osteoarthritis. Early rehabilitation represents a time during which rehabilitation focuses on amelioration of strength and movement impairments; but, their persistence over time suggests more should be done. The goal of this section is to challenge our thinking regarding early management following ACLr with respect to strengthening and movement reeducation using evidence based recommendations. This session will also include an introduction to current and future technology that can aid in the identification and treatment of movement and loading deficits.
