PROGRAM DETAILS

One of the challenges faced by health care professionals is treating pain and instability in the neck and shoulder region. Whether the cause is from a car accident, a work-related injury, overuse, or for no apparent reason at all except aging and wear-and-tear, these patients suffer significant pain and tolerate minimal movement. Imbalances and changes in the normal length-tension relationships of the soft tissues make it increasingly more difficult for these patients to control movement; thus, they avoid it. Knowing the proper dose of modalities and exercises to improve function without aggravating pain is the key to achieving optimal patient outcomes in the shortest period of time.

This one-day course will explore the latest techniques for treating neck and scapular-thoracic pain and instability. Specific diagnoses related to hyper-, and hypo-mobility of this region will be discussed. Based on current research, surgical and non-surgical care paths will be presented for treating both traumatic and non-traumatic injuries to this region. This course includes extensive lab and demonstration sessions for practice of hands-on treatment techniques and exercise progressions, (using foam rollers, balls and discs), as they relate to treating neck and scapular-thoracic instability. PNF techniques, as well as principles from Pilates will be used to obtain improved functional movement. The "clinical pearls" section demonstrates specialized taping and neuromuscular re-education tools for addressing common dysfunctions and substitution patterns. Participants will learn new tools and techniques to implement in the clinic the very next day.


WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Differentiate diagnoses for hyper-, and hypo-mobility conditions in the cervical and scapular-thoracic region, based on a thorough patient history and objective findings
  • Gain a better understanding of common surgical and non-surgical interventions and the indications/contraindications for rehabilitation
  • Discuss the clinical application of modalities and hands-on treatment techniques proven to aide in restoration of normal movement function and pain relief
  • Identify specific stabilization exercise progressions using the latest equipment, and how to apply Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) and Pilates principles to retrain abnormal postural movement patterns
  • Differentiate diagnoses for hyper-, and hypo-mobility conditions in the cervical and scapular-thoracic region, based on a thorough patient history and objective findings
  • Gain a better understanding of common surgical and non-surgical interventions and the indications/contraindications for rehabilitation
  • Discuss the clinical application of modalities and hands-on treatment techniques proven to aide in restoration of normal movement function and pain relief
  • Identify specific stabilization exercise progressions using the latest equipment and how to apply PNF and Pilates principles to retrain abnormal postural movement patterns

What You Should Bring

Participants are asked to bring the following for the workshop portion of this seminar:

  • Exercise mat or towel for use during lab sessions on the floor

  • Exercise ball (for prone exercise techniques)

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes (no jeans, please); a sports bra or bathing suit top is preferred for female attendees. All attendees should prepare to expose the cervical-scapular-thoracic region, at their discretion, for lab portions of the course.
 

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Sue Fleshman, MS, PT, ATC, is an expert in the field of orthopedics and sports medicine, with over 18 years of experience treating patients and athletes of all age groups and activity levels. Sue graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science/Athletic Training from Penn State University, and earned her M.S. in Biology, specializing in Biomechanics, from Bucknell University. She received a post-baccalaureate degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Central Florida. She was selected as a member of the Medical Staff at the Atlanta Summer Olympic Games, and she was awarded a one-year fellowship in Sports Medicine/Athletic Training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. She has also worked with various professional and world-class athletes, including the pro tennis tour, World Cup Figure Skating, Wrestling, and Soccer events, U.S. Volleyball & Tae Kwon Do teams, the World Triathlon Championships and the Walt Disney Marathon events. While working with the U.S.O.C. Biomechanics Division, Sue developed and researched a Clinical Plyometrics protocol and presented findings at the APTA National Conference,
1998. She has performed extensive research on the knee, isokinetics, and balance, and she has contributed to several publications on injury prevention and sports medicine. She received training in several key manual therapy techniques, including Maitland, Kaltenborn, and Osteopathic techniques. In her years of practice, she has utilized and perfected several specialized techniques in taping/strapping, active stabilization, and soft tissue release to improve functional movement patterns.

Currently, Sue teaches health and wellness topics for active seniors in Eckerd College's Senior College program in St. Petersburg, FL. She also teaches for W.I.T.S., (World Instructor Training Schools), and group fitness activities for several fitness facilities. She works privately with post-rehab and health-conscious clients of all ages. Her motto for her patients and clients is that every movement exercise can be modified for each individual patient, based on their ability level. The key to successful outcomes is in the specific identification of the dysfunctional movement pattern, and prescribing the right exercise at the right time.
