Abstract (5 modules)

As therapists, we often recommend exercise to reduce patients' musculoskeletal (MSK) pain, as well as increase their active range of motion and muscle strength. However, clinicians face a challenge when recommending exercise to reduce MSK pain because the pain itself often inhibits the patient's ability to exercise or perform activities of daily living. This situation becomes even more challenging if the prescribed exercise program aggravates the individual's pain. 

This 5-module course including cervical, thoracic, lumbar, hip and knee and shoulder regions describes a method which provides for the effective treatment of MSK disorders by allowing patients to exercise pain free earlier in the rehabilitation process. The method comprises a unique approach utilizing the following four components simultaneously from the onset of treatment: isometric muscle contraction; assisted active oscillatory mobilization; end-of-range passive stretch; and mindfulness.

 


  • This online course describes a multi-modal treatment approach:  an evidence-based approach for treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders with special reference to neck pain sufferers. This approach utilizes therapeutic pain science education, manual therapy (including passive and dynamic techniques), and exercise therapy. This online course describes techniques which provide effective treatment of neck pain to allow patients to exercise earlier in the rehabilitation process.


  • This pre-recorded video describes a multi-modal treatment approach:  an evidence-based approach for treating neuromusculoskeletal disorders with special reference to neck pain sufferers. This approach utilizes therapeutic pain science education, manual therapy (including passive and dynamic  techniques), and exercise therapy. This webinar describes techniques which provide effective treatment of neck pain to allow patients to exercise earlier in the rehabilitation process. This online course consist of 13 video demonstrations of cervical assessment and treatment techniques.

     


  • Current trends in musculoskeletal therapy (that traditionally relied primarily on mobilisation, manipulation and other hands-on modalities), are moving away from passive techniques to a more active approach which includes greater participation by the patient.  Drawing on research and clinical experience, the author has developed a more dynamic manual therapy technique that utilises a combination of isometric exercise (resisted muscle contraction), active physiological oscillatory mobilisation, and end-of-range passive stretching. 

    Passive accessory movements (vertebral and peripheral) still play a role in the management of neuromusculoskeletal disorders, but are implemented following the active component of the technique.  This method thus introduces a modified multimodal treatment approach with more active components than that found in traditional manual therapy models.  Therapeutic patient education including psychosocial input and exercise therapy are adjusted in line with the patient’s individual needs.  All components of this method combine to produce an analgesic effect and may also help to boost the neuroimmune system.

  • As therapists, we often recommend exercise to reduce patients’ low-back pain, as well as increase their active range of motion and muscle strength. However, physical therapists face a challenge when recommending exercise to reduce low-back pain because the pain itself often inhibits the patient’s ability to exercise or perform activities of daily living. This situation becomes even more challenging if the prescribed exercise program aggravates the individual’s low-back pain.  

    This article discusses a method which provides for the effective treatment of low back pain by allowing patients to exercise pain free earlier in the rehabilitation process.  The method comprises a unique approach utilizing the following four components simultaneously from the onset of treatment: isometric muscle contraction (IMC); assisted active oscillatory mobilization; end-of-range passive stretch; and mindfulness.

    This online course consist of 10 video demonstrations of assessment and treatment techniques.


  • This on-line course offers practical tips for the selection of taping techniques for knee pain. You will learn which techniques to utilise for severe, moderate and mild knee pain as well as for different pathologies.


    In addition, there are tips for taping sporting and non-sporting persons.


  • The video will start with a video demonstration of the modified Thomas test and how to differentiate different hip flexors which are shortened and contributing to hip/spine dysfunction.  The webinar will continue with treatment techniques for complex hip, lumbar spine source of pain and stiffness. 

    The rest of the video will show video demonstrations for rehabilitation of the patellofemoral pain syndrome and OA knee.  Appropriate exercises will be provided.   

    This online course will include 25 video demonstrations of assessment and treatment techniques.

     


  • The management of frozen shoulder remains controversial.  Many different therapeutic approaches have been advocated and no single method of treatment has been shown to have a clearly superior outcome. 

    This article discusses a method which provides for the treatment of shoulder pain and stiffness by allowing patients to exercise with less pain earlier in the rehabilitation process.  The method comprises a unique approach utilizing the following four components simultaneously from the onset of treatment: isometric muscle contraction (IMC); dynamic oscillatory stretching (DOS) and/or passive accessory mobilization and mindfulness.


  • This video will start with discussing shoulder pain of cervical origin.  Then we will move to assessment of neck pain as a source of shoulder disorders.  Then we will demonstrate movement therapy approach for painful and stiff shoulder.  The webinar will end with assessment, differential diagnosis and treatment for rotator cuff injuries.

    This online course consist of 20 video demonstrations of assessment and treatment techniques.
