Getting to the Bottom of the Core: How Pelvic Floor Exercises Can Enhance Patient Outcomes
(Approved for 6 PDRs; CEUL017206)
Saturday September 21, 2019
Sponsored by: MICHIGAN PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSOCIATION, NORTHERN DISTRICT – AN APTA COMPONENT
Presented by: Wynne Tezak PT, DPT
Course Location: Superior Physical Therapy- 3899 W Front Street #3, Traverse City, MI 49684
Course Description: Do you ever feel like there is something missing from your clinical toolbox? Do your back and hip pain patients get better, but then end up coming back in a few months later? Do you have trouble getting neck muscles to relax? Do your shoulder patients need constant cuing for posture? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this course is for you. The pelvic floor may be the missing link that could resolve these frustrations. For most physical therapists the pelvic floor is a dark and mysterious place. Don't let it intimidate you anymore! In this exercise based course you will learn how to incorporate pelvic floor training into the treatments you already use. Don’t worry, there will be no undressing involved! You will go to work Monday morning excited to use the assessment and treatment skills you learn in lab.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Describe pelvic floor function and coordination
- Describe the role of the diaphragm in posture and core stability
- Identify pelvic floor and diaphragm dysfunction
- Design functional exercise programs incorporating the pelvic floor into upper extremity, lower extremity, and spinal stabilization exercises
Speaker Bio: Wynne Tezak is a physical therapist at Thunder Bay Therapy and Sports Medicine in Alpena, MI. She earned her doctorate in physical therapy from Oakland University in 2007, then completed further training to treat pelvic floor conditions in men and women in 2010. She does extensive education for the community and other professionals on pelvic health. She believes passionately that the pelvic floor is the often neglected key to good health and mobility.

Course Description: The onset of independent, self-generated locomotor patterns (crawling, walking) radically changes a typically developing infant's relationship with the environment and leads to a cascade of developmental changes and opportunities. Infants and toddlers with delayed motor skills or mobility limitations are unable to reap the inherent benefits of independent, self-generated locomotion and are at risk for secondary impairments in cognition, social skills, spatial awareness, and other developmental areas. Research suggests that providing these children with early mobility experiences provides benefits across the domains of the International Classification of Functioning Disability and Health and may prevent the onset of learned helplessness. This session will detail the theoretical background for early mobility experiences, provide an overview for clinical implementation of early mobility experiences using power mobility devices such as modified battery-operated toy cars, and highlight the development of individualized mobility plans for young children with mobility delays and limitations.

What Every Therapist Needs to Know About Palliative Care
Description: The palliative care practice philosophy is rapidly growing and evolving due to its impact on containing costs, improving quality and quantity of life for individuals with a life-limiting or chronic condition. In every setting, physical therapists and physical therapist assistants will care for these individuals but due to their advancing disease states, there are fundamental differences in the rehabilitative care approach. This educational session will discuss the palliative care philosophy, similarities and differences between palliative care and hospice care, current rehabilitation practice approaches and practice patterns, a focus on quality of life, and integration and complimenting hospital based-palliative care programs. Evidence based palliative care approaches and functional outcome measures will be introduced in a case study format for clinicians to immediately apply to the clinical setting.
