VIEW SCHEDULE

Orthopaedic physical therapists are often presented the challenging task of treating complicated and often coexisting injuries of the head, cervicothoracic spine, and shoulder complex. The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy's 2022 Annual Orthopaedic Meeting will explore integrated evaluation and treatment principles for these regions highlighting the orthopaedic and vestibular factors affecting patients with concussion injuries, the interconnection of the head neck complex, and the relationship between the neck and shoulder in rehabilitation. A diverse team of experts will integrate best available evidence in hot topic areas and enhance participant learning with exciting laboratory breakouts focused on skill acquisition.

Friday and Saturday will begin with a general session, followed by breakout sessions, and an interactive panel discussion to end each day. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend all breakout sessions!


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

At the end of this meeting, the Physical Therapist, Resident, Fellow, final-year DPT student, and PhD student will be able to:

  1. Describe the complex interaction between the central nervous system, vestibulo-ocular system and cervical musculoskeletal system in generating signs and symptoms after concussion.
  2. Describe the differential diagnostic thought process when evaluating patients presenting with common vestibulo-ocular and cervico-thoracic impairments that occur after a concussive event.
  3. Describe the integrated management of common vestibulo-ocular and cervico-thoracic impairments that occur after a concussive event.
  4. Utilize a patient’s presenting clinical findings to drive the region, intensity, and components of physical examination for patients with neck or shoulder disorders. 5. Select the physical examination components with a high likelihood of identifying the movement system / physical impairment most related to the patients reported activity limitations and participation restrictions.
  5. Select the physical examination components with a high likelihood of identifying the movement system / physical impairment most related to the patients reported activity limitations and participation restrictions.
  6. Classify the patient into the appropriate ICF-based clinical practice guideline for common musculoskeletal condition or conditions for neck or shoulder and the associated ICF-based CPG neck or shoulder clinical decision trees.
  7. Match the intervention strategies and the intensity/dosage of the treatment strategies to best reduce or alleviate the client’s reported activity limitations or participation restrictions.
