REAL TIME ULTRASOUND FOR MUSCULOSKELETAL REHABILITATION by DR.ALISON GRIMALDI  Vital Performance Management 

Physiotherapy Course in LONDON - United Kingdom United Kingdom   Location: LONDON  Course Date: 11-12 SEPTEMBER 2017

Physiotherapy Course Summary:
ABOUT THE COURSE:
This course is aimed at physiotherapists or exercise professionals wishing to learn or improve their musculoskeletal ultrasonography skills. The primary focus will be on dynamic assessment and muscle retraining, rather than on diagnostic imaging. The course includes an online theoretical component (2.5 h) and 4 practical workshops on: (1) trunk & pelvis floor; (2) neck & shoulder; (3) knee, foot & ankle; and (4) hip.

AIMS OF THE COURSE:
1. To enhance musculoskeletal imaging technique
2. To teach or enhance skills in use of RTUS for imaging of : trunk & pelvis floor; neck & shoulder; knee, foot & ankle; and hip muscles
3. To teach or enhance skills in optimising muscle recruitment strategies in those regions

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
1. Interact effectively with the user interface or console
2. Have enhanced image optimisation skills
3. Have the skills required for imaging, assessing and retraining :

- WORKSHOP 1: TRUNK & PELVIS FLOOR : abdominal musculature, lumbar multifidus and pelvic floor

- WORKSHOP 2 NECK & SHOULDER: the scapular stabilisers, rotator cuff, subacromial impingement and the impact of passive and active interventions and the deep cervical extensors

- WORKSHOP 3 KNEE, FOOT & ANKLE: patellar, quadriceps and Achilles tendons and the plantar fascia

- WORKSHOP 4 HIP: the deep hip flexor muscles, deep hip abductor musculature and hip external rotators


HOW WILL RTUS HELP YOU TO OPTIMISE REHABILITATION OUTCOMES?
1. RTUS allows assessment of muscle size and quality that is not possible through visual inspection or palpation.
2.RTUS allows access to deeper musculature that is often not accessible via direct palpation.
3. RTUS is a powerful tool in identifying and retraining motor control dysfunction.
4. RTUS is useful in both upregulation and downregulation of muscle recruitment.

TUTOR : Dr Alison Grimaldi
completed a BSC Physiotherapy at the University of Queensland in 1990, a Masters of Sports Physiotherapy in 1997, and her Doctorate in Philosophy in the Field of Physiotherapy (PhD) in 2008. Her PhD studies were concerned with improving our understanding of hip muscle function and the relationship with hip joint pathology and weightbearing stimulus. These studies involved research collaboration with the European Space Agency.

Alison continues to be passionate about extending our understanding of why we develop problems around the hip and pelvis, and what we can do to most effectively prevent and manage these problems. She is currently involved with research studies through the University of Queensland and University of Melbourne, co-supervises a number of PhD students, and has pioneered the use of Real Time Ultrasound technology for the assessment and retraining of muscle function around the hip & pelvis. Due to her voluntary contributions to research at the University of Queensland, Alison has been awarded the title Adjunct Research Fellow in the School of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences.
