PNF I offers a dynamic and functional evaluation and treatment approach to this interrelationship based on specific analysis of motor recruitment patterns and Characteristics of Neuromuscular Control. This course progresses from specific shoulder girdle\, pelvic girdle\, and trunk patterns to weight bearing postures and movements. Content emphasizes the establishment of efficient motor recruitment patterns for rehabilitation of neurological and orthopedic patients and post manipulative techniques. The material in this course is directly related to current neurophysiology of muscle function and motor control.\nObjectives\n\n\tIdentify the philosophy and principles of PNF.\n\tDevelop the participant’s palpation and manual skills necessary to effectively assess the efficiency of motor recruitment patterns.\n\tTrain the participant to utilize manual facilitation to enhance the patient’s Proprioceptive awareness\, neuromuscular response for initiation\, strength\, and endurance\, and to facility motor learning.\n\tIn lab sessions\, practice and perform scapula\, pelvic\, trunk\, and learning sequence patterns for specific evaluation and treatment of motor control dysfunctions.\n\tDevelop a comprehensive understanding of the role of PNF as an inherent component of Functional Mobilization and motor control rehabilitation.\n\tCorrelate the current literature\, anatomy\, and physiology to course material.\n\nAgenda\n\n\n\nFriday\n\n\n8– 8:30 a.m.\nCheck-in.\n\n\n8:30 a.m.–6 p.m.\nMovement Assessment and Reeducation of the trunk scapula & pelvis patterns\, and treatment techniques to address specific dysfunction\, mass & reciprocal trunk patterns).\n\n\nSaturday\n\n\n8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.\nContinue to explore Characteristics of Neuromuscular Control in various postures and positions such as sidelying\, on elbows\, hook-lying\, and quadruped.\n\n\nSunday\n\n\n8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.\nSitting and Gait Assessment and Reeducation. Patient Demonstration.\n\n\n\nSchedule may necessitate changes due to travel restrictions of the instructor. The instructor will discuss any changes at the beginning of the course if applicable.\nInstructor note\nThe instructor advertised for the course is the intended primary instructor. Every effort is made to hold the course with the scheduled instructor. Course refunds or transfers will not be granted based on a change of instructor. Please note there may be a change of instructor(s) without prior notice.\n\nMultiple instructors are scheduled for each course. However\, the actual number of instructors at a course will be determined by final enrollment.\nCEU hours\n3 Days\, 28 Contact Hours\nBreaks\nNo food will be provided during course breaks.  You are welcome to bring your own snacks if desired.\nAttendance\nPT\, PTA\, OT. OTAs may attend with supervising PT or OT.\n\nEach student is expected to attend all hours of instruction to receive a certificate of completion. Any exceptions to this policy must be pre-approved in writing by the Directors.\nLab clothing\nWear comfortable clothing for lectures and sitting labs.  Participants' bodies must be accessible for observation and treatment. Please refrain from wearing large or sharp jewelry. Because there is a great deal of kneeling during this course\, you may want to bring knee pads. Also\, please bring proper shoes for Sundays' Gait lab.\n\nWomen: Sports top or loose fitting shirt so scapula is accessible\, and shorts with loose waist.\n\nMen: Shorts or swim trunks with loose waist.\n\nAll:  Warm-up suites or other clothing worn over the above described attire is advised to ensure comfort between demonstrations as temperatures in the room may vary.\nHotel accommodations \nView a list of local hotels.\nCourse preparation\nThis 3 day workshop is quite demanding and intense.  Please come prepared and rested.  Review the basic anatomy of the scapula and pelvis muscles and joints.  This knowledge will serve as an important foundation for the principles and procedures taught.\nRequired reading\nRational Manual Therapies\, Basmajian and Nyber\, Chapter 11 "Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation" by Vicky L. Saliba\, Gregory S. Johnson and Cheryl Wardlaw.\nRecommended reading\n\n\tPNF in Practice\, Adler\, Susan\, Beckers\, Dominiek\, and Buck\, Math. 3rd Ed.\, NY: Springer Verlag\, 2008.  Available at or\, phone 800-777-4643\, fax 201-348-4505\, email:\n\tAny current literature on motor training.\n\nRegistration\nThe cost to attend is $660.
