Upcoming Workshops/Seminar

Management of the Foot and Ankle Complex

Foot and ankle pathology is common in physical therapy practice. Overuse injuries are often a result of abnormal foot mechanics or due to imbalances higher in the kinetic chain. This course will review the examination and treatment of selected foot and ankle pathologies impacting patients across the adult lifespan. Through lecture presentations, hands-on laboratory sessions and discussions of clinical presentations and case studies, participants will gain an understanding of normal and abnormal gait as it relates to orthopedic dysfunction. In addition, participants will gain an understanding of various foot and ankle pathologies and evidence-based treatment interventions to maximize function.

The course is being instructed by David Nolan, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, CSCS on October 15th and 16th, 2016. This particular course counts for 15 contact hours with NY State. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ed Leonard at (845)341-4280 or edward.leonard@sunyorange.edu

Positive Functional Outcomes through Strength Training in Children with Developmental Disabilities

Most children with disabilities and motor impairments have strength deficits and weakness-related impairments. These strength deficits correlate or directly interfere with their functional level and participation across multiple environments including at home and school. This seminar will focus on how to best apply available literature into clinical and educational practice for optimal outcomes. Through practice, extensive case problem analysis and discussion, participants will learn best practices in data driven, scientific based interventions for strength, endurance, and function. This seminar will encourage the success of children with special needs and set up high standards in outcomes.

This course will help therapists set realistic goals, prioritize treatment and implement successful programs for children with disabilities including cerebral palsy, multiply handicapped, obesity, chronic orthopedic conditions, and autism from preschool through school age, adolescence, and towards adulthood.

The course is being instructed by Bobby Nabeyama on November 5th and 6th, 2016. This particular course counts for 18 contact hours with NY State. If you have any questions feel free to contact Ed Leonard at (845)341-4280 or edward.leonard@sunyorange.edu
