Join Us in Baltimore!
Don't miss this opportunity to learn from the experts in both pain science and movement science! Given the vision of APTA related to the movement system and the explosion of information related to pain science, what could be more cutting edge?
Please join us in Baltimore, Maryland, for the 6th Annual Orthopaedic Section Meeting, April 27 - 28, 2018. Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants will have an opportunity to learn from and engage with experts in the field of pain science and movement science. In addition, participants will be able to spend time with the leadership of the Orthopaedic Section.
We have made a slight change to the format of our 2018 meeting, as we will now be kicking off our meeting on Friday morning, April 27th. Our "welcome reception" will now take place on Friday night, in hopes that all registrants will be able to attend.
The focus of this 2-day conference will be the integration of the most current knowledge of pain science with movement science applied to the low back, hip, knee, and shoulder. Each day begins with a general session attended by all participants, followed by smaller breakout sessions led by the speakers. These sessions are intended to allow case-based, advanced application, and hands-on experiences related to the topics presented. New this year is a panel discussion at the end of both days to discuss, debate, and integrate the content delivered at the course.
At the end of this meeting, the PT and PTA will be able to:
- Understand the current science of pain and apply key concepts to the management of musculoskeletal pain problems.
- Discuss and understand the application of movement science to the management of pain problems in the low back, hip, knee, and shoulder regions.
- Become familiar with tools used to characterize pain and movement.
- Practice clinical decision making and integration of pain and movement science during small breakout sessions.
