About the Presentations

Introduction to Blood Flow Restriction Training (BFRT) by Joshua Lewis and Richard Romeis - Discussion of indications and contraindications of BFRT. Critically analyze the utility of BFRT in the clinical setting and in different stages of rehabilitation. Demonstration of BFRT applications.


Physical Therapy and Dry Needling: What is the Fuzz all about? by Rob Sillevis -  Dry needling has been an emerging treatment option for physical therapists over the last decade. Dry needling is a technique in which a fine needle is used to penetrate the skin, subcutaneous tissues, and muscle tissues with the intent to mechanically affect and disrupt tissues without the use of an anesthetic. This course will identity that dry needling is typically not used as a stand-alone treatment intervention, but within the overall therapeutic management of musculoskeletal conditions. We will discuss that dry needling can target a variety of different structures including myofascial trigger points, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and soft tissues. We will discuss the difference between dry needling and acupuncture.  Some proposed mechanisms that could explain the benefits of dry needling will be presented. It will be outlined that dry needling can be used to treat local dysfunctions, but also dysfunctions based on its anatomical and segmental relationships . Case study examples will be used to identify how dry needling could be successfully implemented in clinical practice. And for the brave attendee there is an option to needle oneself to get the experience how needling feels like.
