Applicable to: Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, for COTAs and PTAs.

This course explores general balance and, specifically, human balance. The components of human balance are examined and how they interconnect to produce efficient, effective balance in varying situations and environments. Processing of perceptual information and the neuroscience of processing the information are discussed.  Common causes of balance disorders in adults and children are identified. Testing and treatment of vestibular disorders are presented. Examples of treatment strategies for adults and children are presented along with problems solving opportunities.

Rotator Cuff Management

2 Credit hours

Win Chang MD, FAAOS
PT and OT Boards Approved

The Rotator Cuff Management Course will take students of the 21st century on a paradigm shift to what is new on the horizon — introducing what may be considered as the rotator cuff management technique of “tomorrow”. This course begins with an emphasis on contemporary knowledge of the functional anatomy of the rotator cuff. This is followed by a discussion on the rationale and basic science behind a revolutionary technique of rotator cuff management.  This revolutionary technique is the rotational training method as opposed to “today’s” linearly driven techniques of pushing, pulling, lifting, and pressing dumbbells or rubber bands.  This rotational method is the rotator cuff management technique of “tomorrow”.  The course finishes with  a deep dive introducing the novel rotator cuff exercise device, the ShoulderSphere® as the rotator cuff management technique of “tomorrow”. This course is for PTs, PTAs, OTs and COTA,  and ATL.
