#7112 New Innovations In Physical Therapy Modalities
There have been many new innovations in the area of physical therapy modalities for the management of orthopedic dysfunctions in the last 10 years. Dry needling, KT tape, IASTM, Cupping, and innovative uses of athletic taping to name a few. If you have been using or planning to use these modalities in your practice, and want to know the latest evidence for their use, then tune in.
The purpose of this course is to discuss the evidence to date regarding the effective use of these modalities in an orthopedic population. There are many claims regarding the use of these tools that are proven in the current literature, and many others that have been proven not to work or have no evidence regarding their use. All three of these aspects (what it is proven to do, proven not to do, and not enough evidence to support/refute) for each treatment will be provided.
Best evidence to date will be presented and discussed with emphasis on application in clinical cases. Most importantly, these treatment options will be compared to more traditional, well researched modalities (STM, mobilization, exercise) to help the participant determine the best use of treatment time with their patients. Course delivery will include speaker-participant interaction and participant-participant interaction via media sources. (Intermediate Level)
