    Acetabular labral tears are reported to be a major cause of hip dysfunction in young to middle-age patients and a primary precursor to hip osteoarthritis. The management of hip injuries in the athletic population "...has rapidly evolved over the past decade with our improved understanding of mechanical hip pathology." (Lynch et al., 2013) Medical and rehabilitation differential diagnosis of the hip involves many options such as labral tear, femoroactebular impingement (FAI), hip capsular laxity/instability, chondral lesions, septic joint or loose body in the joint. New technology allows improved identification of tears and arthroscopic surgical repairs, yet time of injury to diagnosis is still often delayed, making long-term prognosis for hip preservation poor. The risks of arthroscopic surgery, which, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, are equal to complication rates of open hip surgeries (Arthroscopy, 2013), coupled with the lack of long term follow up studies for arthroscopic procedures, makes conservative therapy a valuable tool. This 2-day continuing education course presents a holistic methodology for the recommended trials of conservative therapy covered in current literature.
    This course will give special attention to identification of differential diagnosis of specific tissues of the hip joint for identification of intra-articular damage or premature joint degeneration. The participant will be able to recognize high-risk populations, common musculoskeletal presentation of patients with hip dysfunction, and how to instruct in optimal recruitment patterns for prevention of long-range debility. Secondary and differential diagnoses of the hip and pelvis will be addressed in order to help the clinician understand how conventional and integrative therapies can be used in combination to provide better outcomes. Hip labrum injury will be addressed in the following clinical categories: injury prevention and wellness, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, and organizational and professional health and well-being.
    Current surgical methods will also be addressed in this continuing education course in order to provide the clinician with a well-rounded background in the management of labral injuries and related secondary lesions. Therapists in increasing numbers are working with patients who have hip labral injuries prior to and following hip arthroscopic and open surgeries. Utilizing a case study framework, this course will provide you with the opportunity to analyze the evaluation and intervention of the most current methods.

    Current standards of practice in maternal care have been cited as “a human rights failure” in the US1. Not due to the lack of medical services but the overuse of medical interventions during birth,2,3,4 hospitals that have “reduced medical interventions” and have improved “access to woman-centered care have fewer deaths and lower health care costs”1,3,4

    Enter yoga as an ideal paradigm for “woman-centered care” that minimizes the need for technocratic birth, the medicalization of pregnancy and birth as a pathology rather than a natural condition. Patient satisfaction and self-confidence, which also suffers under the current biomedical model, is likewise improved by the self-care and self-empowerment emphasis of yogic medicine and its philosophy.

    Yoga as a contemplative science and practice is a burgeoning field whose evidence-base is fast growing. This course combines pelvic rehabilitation and yoga in order to optimize childbirth outcomes and postpartum rehabilitation.

    Yoga offers an evolutionary paradigm-shift that modernizes standard biomedical prenatal and postpartum care, through the WHO and IOM-endorsed lens of biopsychosocial practice5. Even more is yoga, when informed by rehabilitative science, can advance the creative dialogue of rehabilitation and yoga practice, paving the way for yoga to become an innovative best-care practice in prenatal and postpartum rehabilitative care.

    Prenatal yogic medicine can be used in childbirth education and coaching, as well as postpartum care, and has been shown to improve labor and delivery outcomes, affect genetic transcription and expression, improve HPA Axis regulation and gut microbiome colonization, and can also well address pre-existing or perpetuating issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight management. All of these comorbid conditions have a vital role in determining rehabilitation outcomes and should be addressed in regular care. However, for example, in comorbid conditions like pelvic pain and depression, pharmacological side effects, and the stigma of seeking mental health treatment can severely diminish adherence to biomedical interventions6. As a mind-body intervention, yoga during pregnancy can increase birth weight, shorten labor, decrease pre-term birth, decrease instrument-assisted birth, reduce perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances, and general pregnancy-related discomfort and quality of life physical domains7,8. Yoga offers an optimal evidence-based strategy that can positively affect the underlying neuroendocrine issues that ultimately dictate therapeutic outcomes.

    The WHO recommends that postpartum checkups include screening for back pain, incontinence, hemorrhoids, constipation, fatigue, breast pain, perineal pain, depression, painful intercourse, headaches, bowel problems, and dizziness or fainting. The yogic medicine paradigm can influence all of these conditions through systems-based intervention.

    A combination of didactic lecture and interactive lab formats, including differential diagnosis and general prenatal and postpartum biopsychosocial screening will prepare the clinician to immediately apply the medical therapeutic yoga paradigm of practice. The 2-day course will also include business practice discussion and technical support for developing your new platform and clinical specialty niche in medical therapeutic yoga practice.

    Description:
    Maternal care can and must improve in America. Current standards of practice have been cited as a “human rights failure.”1 We can deduce, then, that the current biomedical model is not meeting the needs of mothers or their babies.

    Patient satisfaction in pregnancy and birth also suffers, with stories of birth trauma, whether physical or emotional, being unfortunately all too common. With a skyrocketing C-section rate at 33% in the US, and more than 50% in Brazil, far above the World Health Organization’s recommended 10% (for reducing mortality), prenatal care is in a full-blown international crisis.

    However, contemplative science has long been a compassionate, culturally sensitive method for improving mindfulness and all-health outcomes. And the use of contemplative science, specifically yoga, in prenatal health has enormous potential and a growing evidence-base that can ameliorate this crisis.

    Yoga offers an evolutionary paradigm-shift that modernizes standard biomedical prenatal and postpartum care, through the WHO and IOM-endorsed lens of biopsychosocial practice.3 Even more is yoga, when informed by rehabilitative science, can advance the creative dialogue of rehabilitation and yoga practice, paving the way for yoga to become an innovative best-care practice in prenatal and postpartum rehabilitative care.

    Prenatal yogic medicine can be used in childbirth education and coaching, as well as postpartum care, and has been shown to improve labor and delivery outcomes, affect genetic transcription and expression, improve HPA Axis regulation and gut microbiome colonization, and can also well address pre-existing or perpetuating issues such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight management. All of these comorbid conditions have a vital role in determining rehabilitation outcomes and should be addressed in regular care. However, for example, in comorbid conditions like pelvic pain and depression, pharmacological side effects, and the stigma of seeking mental health treatment can severely diminish adherence to biomedical interventions.4

    As a mind-body intervention, yoga during pregnancy can increase birth weight, shorten labor, decrease pre-term birth, decrease instrument-assisted birth, reduce perceived pain, stress, anxiety sleep disturbances, and general pregnancy-related discomfort and quality of life physical domains.5-6 Yoga offers an optimal evidence-based strategy that can positively affect the underlying neuroendocrine issues that ultimately dictate therapeutic outcomes.

    This course prepares the clinician to handle standard biomedical prenatal care for the pregnant patient as well as biopsychosocial care. Through a didactic and energizing lecture emphasizing interactive labs, this course will prepare the clinician to apply yoga as medicine through the WHO-endorsed biopsychosocial lens of assessment for first, second, and early third trimesters of pregnancy.

    Algorithms for prenatal yoga rehab will also be included to streamline and direct clinical decision-making. The course addresses both low and high-risk pregnancy mind/body management, literature review and real time case analysis for differential diagnosis in both individual and group-based therapy. The 2-day course will also include business practice discussion and technical support for developing your new platform and clinical specialty niche in medical therapeutic yoga practice.
