NEW COURSE SERIES: FMS Clinical Integration Education

Written by FMS Tuesday, December 3, 2019 FMS

This series of four online and associated virtual courses is designed for professionals who treat patients with musculoskeletal pain. The goal of this series is to provide the learner with the current best evidence related to the most commonly encountered conditions in musculoskeletal practice and includes the best research related to low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and common lower quarter disorders.

These courses discuss the integration of Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) findings into assessment and treatment utilizing the current best evidence, allowing the SFMA user a better understanding of how to blend evidence-based and treatment with their SFMA findings. For those who are not familiar with the SFMA, this course will provide an excellent introduction to the SFMA and how it is utilized to manage the concept of Regional Interdependence.  
 

Title: Clinical Integration: Approach into the Classification and Management of Patients with Low Back Pain

Description: This continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with low back pain. The course will serve to integrate the current best evidence for patients with LBP with the application of the regional interdependence model, the SFMA. The course will cover the history, evidence, and clinical application of contemporary classification for patients with low back pain. The treatment-based classification (TBC) and the recently proposed Specific Treatment for Problems of the Spine (STOPS) approach for physical therapy management of patients with low back pain will be covered. The course will include skill development through laboratory demonstration and case studies covering the evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) required to accurate place and effectively treat a patient in each of the 3 primary TBC categories (direction specific, mobilization and stabilization) and key associated categories from the STOPS approach. Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with “patient for life” strategies will be covered. 

Title: Clinical Integration:  Functional Movement Systems Approach into the Classification and Management of Patients with Cervical Pain

Description: This continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with cervical pain and dysfunction. This course will serve to utilize the current best evidence for patients with cervical pain and integrate the regional interdependence model as evaluated through the SFMA. The course will cover primary cervical diagnoses commonly seen in the rehabilitation setting. The course will include skill development through laboratory demonstration and case studies covering the evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for each primary condition covered including discogenic related lesions, cervicogenic headache, facet syndrome, and whiplash associated disorder. Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with strategies to manage musculoskeletal health throughout the lifespan will be covered. 

 
Title: Clinical Integration:  Functional Movement Systems Approach into the Classification and Management of Patients with Shoulder Pain
 
Description: This continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with shoulder pain and dysfunction. This course will serve to utilize the current best evidence for patients with shoulder pain and integrate the regional interdependence model as evaluated through the SFMA. The course will cover primary shoulder diagnoses commonly seen in the rehabilitation setting. The course will include skill development through laboratory demonstration and case studies covering the evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for each primary condition covered including subacromial impingement, instability, labral lesions, rotator cuff pathology, and adhesive capsulitis. A module related to evidence-based Arm Care for the overhead athlete is also included. Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with strategies to manage musculoskeletal health throughout the lifespan will be covered. 
 

Title: Clinical Integration:  Approach into the Management of Patients with Lower Extremity Pain 

Description: This continuing education course is designed for rehabilitation-oriented healthcare providers who treat patients with lower extremity pain. The course will serve to integrate the current best evidence for patients with lower extremity pain with the application of the regional interdependence model, the SFMA. The course will cover primary lower extremity diagnoses commonly seen in the rehabilitation setting. The course will include skill development through laboratory demonstration and case studies covering the evidenced-based exam items and most common treatment techniques (manual therapy and therapeutic exercise) for each primary condition covered including hip impingement, piriformis syndrome, bursitis, and OA as well as patellofemoral syndrome, patellar tendonitis, ACL post-op rehabilitation and knee OA.  Common leg/foot ankle diagnosis of medial tibial stress syndrome, Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis will also be covered. Clinical integration of SFMA findings and progressions to appropriate Functional Movement Systems discharge testing along with “patient for life” strategies will be covered.
