Accelerate your Growth by Increasing your Scope

This series is designed for private practice and hospital-based orthopaedic therapists, including physiotherapists, kinesiologists, chiropractors, and sports medicine physicians.  The scope of practice for MSK conditions is rapidly changing.  Years lived with disability for people with chronic MSK conditions has increased by 60% since the turn of the millennium. 

MSK conditions are more complex than ever before.  Nutrition, lifestyle factors, sensorimotor smudging, pelvic health, psychosocial factors, and stress all play a role in the health and wellbeing of persons with MSK problems. 

Are you ready to accelerate your clinical growth by broadening your scope of practice?  

General Information about this Webinar Series

Don’ts: You don’t have to become a psychologist to have a psychologically-informed practice and you don’t have to become a pelvic health physiotherapist to address pelvic health issues.  

Do’s: You do have to raise your awareness of the complexity of factors that contribute to persistent pain.  This webinar series will accomplish just that.  It is designed to introduce you to a variety of topics for consideration in MSK problems.  Should a menopausal woman with shoulder pain get the same treatment approach as a 20-year old student?  Do you routinely screen the pelvic floor in low back pain?  What does spirituality have to do with MSK problems?  Lifestyle factors, such as nutrition, sleep, and exercise are rarely discussed with someone with neck pain; yet, all of these factors are highly relevant.  

Join Carolyn Vandyken as she has an open forum discussion with clinical leaders in these areas of whole-person health.

Overview of all Sessions:

  1. Sleep and Musculoskeletal pain: The Crucial Link with Debbie Patterson 
  2. Osteoporosis: A Silent Risk Factor for Decreased QOL with Mikki Townsend
