Vestibular physical therapists are often consulted in concussion management due to the presence of visual and vestibular dysfunction following the injury. A multitude of visual and vestibular impairments are frequently observed following concussion and may complicate recovery. This course will review the components of an ocular motor examination following concussion, along with normal and abnormal findings. Demonstrations of techniques for evaluation and video examples of pathological findings will be shown. The implications of abnormal ocular motor findings for recovery will be reviewed.

Dysgraphia: Helping Children Overcome Handwriting Difficulties

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Illegible handwriting, also known as dysgraphia, is the primary reason for referrals to therapists practicing in school-based settings. Although handwriting instruction is the responsibility of teachers, the therapist's role is in the identification of the motor, sensory, and perceptual deficits underlying dysgraphia. In this course you will learn signs and symptoms of the three different types of dysgraphia and be able to identify functional handwriting challenges in school-age children. Assessment tools used to determine recognition of dysgraphia will be discussed with specific case examples. Viewers will ascertain a variety of remedial activities along with functional adaptations that can be used to assist children with success in functional written communication skills for scholastic achievement.

Diagnosis and Management of Acquired Functional Speech Disorders

Diagnosis and Management of Acquired Functional Speech Disorders

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Functional speech disorders (FSDs; previously known as psychogenic speech disorders) encompass a wide variety of speech abnormalities with an unclear etiology. FSDs are not unusual in clinical practice, but are often misdiagnosed. These disorders manifest in the form of adult-onset impairments of articulation, fluency, resonance, and prosody, as well as pseudoforeign accent, infantile speech, and mutism. Interrelated psychiatric, psychological, and neurobiological mechanisms often play an important role in FSDs. Distinguishing FSDs from other disorders is critical in developing an appropriate speech therapy plan. Several audio clip case studies demonstrate how to conduct examinations and make a differential diagnosis. This course will also cover the effective management of FSDs through assertive treatment and speech pattern modification.

TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape: Clinical Integration

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
The fourth course in this four-part series on TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape focuses on the clinical integration of kinesiology tape. Specifically, Phil Page addresses the clinical decision making process of identifying opportunities to integrate kinesiology taping within practice including best available evidence, clinical experience, and patient-specific considerations.

The four T’s of Functional Taping, testing, taping, retesting, and training, are covered. Dr. Page further illustrates how Kinesiology Taping should not be used as a stand-alone treatment, but instead should be combined with therapeutic exercise and proper education on topics such as posture and ergonomics. Clinical scenarios for the integration of kinesiology taping for both upper quarter and lower quarter examples are demonstrated throughout the course.

This is the fourth course in the four-part TheraBand Kinesiology Tape series. Please be sure watch the previous three courses:

TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape: Research and Methods
TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape: Basic Applications of the Upper Quarter
TheraBand® Kinesiology Tape: Basic Applications of the Lower Quarter

Sensorimotor and Proprioception for the Upper Extremity

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Sensorimotor deficits can impair function and may be present in individuals with hand and wrist conditions. Researchers have reported sensorimotor deficits exist in patients with common upper extremity conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, distal radius fracture, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). To combat these conditions, many types of interventions can be incorporated into practice to enhance proprioception input and restore hand and wrist function. This course will provide the rehabilitation professional with the tools needed to understand the complex sensorimotor dysfunction of the upper extremity and to assess sensorimotor dysfunction and implement proprioception activities into their practice. Join Dr. Kris Valdes as she prepares you to approach sensorimotor and proprioception in the upper extremity through a comprehensive lecture, detailed motion graphics, and interactive demonstrations.
