Postgraduate Workshops

Postgraduate education courses are held at East Toronto Orthopaedic & Sports Injury Clinic for physiotherapists and other health professionals who want to further their education and network with other physiotherapy enthusiasts. All postgrad courses are held at the East Toronto location.

ACTIVE SHOULDER CLINICAL SEMINARS

Cameron Bennett, MPhty (MSK), BSc (Pharm.), MPT, CSCS

This workshop offers health care professionals a structured approach to building their diagnostic knowledge along with a comprehensive set of treatment skills. They are intended to be practical and advance the knowledge of all professionals, from new graduates to senior postgraduate clinicians.

Differential diagnosis, examination skills and effective treatment methods are taught for each shoulder disorder. Current teachings in clinical anatomy, biomechanics and pathology will be reviewed for each problem. Key rehabilitation methods will be taught through lectures, demonstration and case studies. We will also examine several rehabilitation plans and post-surgical protocols during the workshops.

MASTERING THE SHOULDER – LEVEL I

November 24-25, 2018

MOBILIZATION OF THE NEUROIMMUNE SYSTEM – NOIGROUP

Dr. Robert Johnson, PT, DPT, OCS

October 13-14, 2018

Based on the latest evidence, this course has been completely updated and re-written ‘from the basic science up.’ The research is compelling – the immune system via its interaction with the nervous system is a critical player in learning, memory, movement and sensitivity. This new understanding integrates peripheral and central processes and targets therapy towards healthy neuroimmune balance.

This comprehensive lecture and hands-on course integrates the latest research on neurodynamics and neuroimmune science to provide a clinical reasoning framework to identify those patients who will benefit from neuroimmune mobilization. The course then updates and refines the essential practical skills to examine and manage the physical health of the nervous system – skilled, safe and appropriately timed handling techniques are covered in detail during labs and practical sessions.
