This conference is designed to educate PT’s, OT’s, PA's, RN’s and other allied health professionals on common spine and upper/lower extremity conditions.

  • Providing an optimal care plan for a broad range of post-surgery rehabilitation 
  • Utilizing current guidelines in the management of frequently encountered therapeutic issues.

The emphasis will be on the integration of current scientific literature and clinical practice into developing clinical reasoning skills and proficiency in the execution of treatment.
