Pitt PT: Boot Camp for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
April 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Carlo Ammendolia, DC, PhD
The Boot camp program is an evidence-based multi-modal approach suited for practitioners who use manual therapy. The approach is focused on improving functional status especially walking ability. The program is directed to the multi-faceted aspects of DLSS that includes physical impairments (patho anatomy, spinal stiffness, lower extremity weakness and overall deconditioning), pathophysiology (neuro-ischemia) and psychosocial aspects (poor expectations and depression). This workshop will provide step-by-step training on how to perform all necessary patient exercises, manual therapy techniques and how to provide patents with self-management strategies. All proceeds from this course will be donated to the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research as a part of the VCU-Marquette Challenge!
