Course Descriptions:

A Systematic Approach to Manual & Exercise Therapy: Utilizing Advanced Techniques to Achieve Rapid and Long Lasting Results
Upcoming Course Dates
First in the HCE series of comprehensive manual and exercise therapy courses, this class will explore the impact of joint and soft tissue anatomy, arthrokinematics / osteokinematics, neurology, physiology, psychology and more on the evaluation and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. HCE advocates a unique assessment and treatment approach that covers all the major body sections and the entire body as a whole. Advanced clinical assessment and treatment techniques will be included in order to fully support each key concept of HCE’s approach toward preventing & managing problems of the musculoskeletal system. HCE will demonstrate a functionally integrated approach to manual therapy and exercise prescription that will enhance your clinical outcomes.

As the series of courses progress, more detailed assessment and treatment techniques will be added for each respective body section, so the participant will be able to handle increasingly complex patient presentations.

Developing superior, hands on, assessment and treatment techniques will enable the class participants to efficiently and effectively treat the orthopedic patient population. Blending a manual approach with scientifically based exercise prescription will ensure long term clinical and functional success.

Health Connections Enterprises’ approach to the musculoskeletal system places highly skilled manual and exercise therapists at the forefront of the healthcare team. Working in harmony with large and small employers, Health Connections Enterprises is striving to turn the tide of the run-away costs of the workman’s compensation and general healthcare systems. Armed with the content of this course, YOU ARE THE SOLUTION!

Eighth in the HCE series of comprehensive manual and exercise therapy courses, this course is an evidence-based diagnosis and manual therapy treatment approach of the lower quarter is presented taking in account the interactions of the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip, knee and ankle. An in-depth diagnostic approach of these interactions will allow the true drivers of lower quarter dysfunctions to be identified. The sacrum biomechanically is an extension of the lumbar spine whereas the innominate and the femurs are another functional unit. These concepts are assessed when looking at the contributions each has in lower quarter dysfunction. Many joint interactions do exist, such as, hip mobility affecting function and pain in the lumbar spine. The alignment and function of the knee can be affected by the foot and ankle, in addition to the hip. A diagnostic process is performed to identify the interactions for their relevance, and treatment is planned accordingly. This course brings together many concepts that must be considered when diagnosing and treating this region and by doing so will improve patient outcomes.

This diagnostic system will equip the participant with the ability to recognize what is appropriate to treat and to initiate effective treatment using various manual therapy and exercise approaches and techniques. These techniques include disc-centralization rationale, mobilization, muscle energy, strain-counter strain, and specific exercise.
