Presented by Neely Sullivan, MPT, CLT-LANA, CDP
VideoText
Course: #9457Level: Introductory2 Hours
This seminar will describe the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic system in relation to risks for developing wounds. This session will also focus on different types and stages of wounds commonly occurring and outline wound management interventions for individuals living with lymphedema.

Successful Static Splinting: Foundations, Part 1
Presented by Kirsten Davin, OTD, OTR/L, ATP, SMS
Video
Course: #4768Level: Introductory1 Hour
Following a brief overview of the history of splint fabrication and the advances in the splinting and orthotics arena, an anatomical review of hand structures and landmarks will be performed. Types of splints as well as the variety in thermoplastic materials and characteristics will be presented in preparation for additional courses within this series. This course is Part 1 of a 4-part series on static splinting.

Therapeutic intervention for the resolution of elbow stiffness. Joint and soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise and occupation-based interventions to prevent and resolve elbow stiffness are presented. Orthotic principles for prevention and resolution of elbow stiffness are reviewed.

Upper Extremity Rehabilitation for Traumatic Brachial Plexus Injuries
Presented by Anna VanVoorhis Miller, MS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4545Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course begins with an in-depth overview of the anatomy and mechanics of traumatic brachial plexus injury, possible nerve transfers, and delves into the role of OT in evaluating and monitoring the progress of recovery. Additionally, it highlights treatment priorities and techniques that may be helpful in the rehabilitation of this patient population.

Elbow Stiffness: Biological and Neurological Considerations
Presented by Paul Bonzani, MHS, OTR/L, CHT
Video
Course: #4578Level: Advanced1 Hour
The unique anatomy and physiology of the elbow joint are explored in the context of contracture development. Contributions of neurological mechanisms of bicipital co-contraction and shoulder girdle substitution to elbow stiffness are elucidate as are implications for therapy management.

Progressive Topics of Torticollis for the Occupational Therapist
Presented by Lisa J. Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4497Level: Advanced1 Hour
Torticollis is identified by posture of the head and neck from unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetrical positioning can directly affect the child’s early motor development, specifically vision and early hand control. This course aims to progress the participant’s knowledge of torticollis’ impact on a child’s early fine motor development.

Introduction to Torticollis and Plagiocephaly
Presented by Lisa J. Roehl, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Pediatric Physical Therapy
Video
Course: #4472Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course focuses on identifying and understanding the muscle imbalances of torticollis and related aspects of cranial asymmetries of plagiocephaly. Torticollis is identified by the posture of the head and neck from a unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetry positioning can cause increased dependence and pressure on the growing skull and cause flattening. This course aims to establish baseline knowledge for identifying torticollis and plagiocephaly and provide early treatment ideas for the therapist and family.
