Hello Autumn

Happy fall, everyone! We here at Dynamic Sports Physical Therapy hope you are all well and are enjoying the changing of the seasons. We've been busy treating our patients and furthering our education here at DSPT we want to let you know what we've been up to.

Jenny became certified as an SSOL Schroth Physical Therapist last month through Scoliosis & Spine continuing education seminars. There she learned Schroth-based principles for treating scoliosis and spinal conditions, exercises for each curve type, clinical and radiological evaluation, individual treatment plans, team approach to treatment, and about adult spinal deformity. See more about our Schroth Program at Dynamic Sports here.

Nathan has been expanding into treatment of vestibular dysfunctions. He recently took Dr. Susan Whitney's courses in Recent Advances in Treatment and Diagnosis of Posterior and Horizontal Canal BPPV (i.e., benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). If you have any questions about the vestibular therapy program, we have here at Dynamic Sports PT they can be answered right here.

Jon recently took the Hospital for Special Surgery course for their Rehabilitation Hip Preservation Certification. It was developed for physical therapists to master clinical skills related to non-arthritic hip conditions. As the name implies, its focus is on strategies to minimize the accumulation of damage to the hip that would otherwise eventually require significant surgical intervention. Learn more about how we treat hip pain at Dynamic Sports PT right here.

Pete has been investing time in a year-long course through the University of Pittsburgh, the Advanced Vestibular Certificate Program. The program is a comprehensive experience in vestibular physical therapy that prepares and certifies physical therapists to be frontline providers for patients experiencing balance, dizziness and abnormal proprioception. If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms this information may be helpful.

Mila recently took a course through the Carrick Institute, an organization focused on neuroscience and rehabilitation, called Neurological Exam for Acupuncture Practice. The course extensively covered the structure and function of the central nervous system, the interplay between the brain and the autonomic nervous system, and how to functionally assess these different structures clinically.
