Description

Understanding the relationship between, and within, body regions and systems (neural, articular, myofascial, visceral etc.) and the consequences of impaired function of one region/system on another is complex. Many health practitioners specialize in body regions, and/or systems and treatment is often based on the practitioner’s training and experience. However, this reductionistic approach may not be optimal in that each body region is not only an integrated system within itself (i.e. comprised of many differentiated yet linked parts (Siegel 2010)) but is also integrated, and interdependent, as part of the whole body/person.  No studies have correlated persistent pain anywhere in the body to a consistent impairment. Therefore, in persistent pain conditions such as low back pain, metatarsalgia, TMD, headache etc., understanding what body region and system should be treated requires an individual clinical reasoning approach. The Integrated Systems Model (ISM - Lee & Lee 2011, Lee 2015) is an evidence-informed, clinical reasoning approach that embraces, and enhances, the concepts of the regional interdependence model (Sueki et al 2013).  

This 2-day course will introduce the participant to ISM and provide a structured clinical reasoning model for understanding where to focus treatment for those with multiple impairments and persistent pain. Where is the criminal and who is the victim?

The Thorax - An Integrated Approach, the textbook will be the resource for this course and a highly recommended purchase for all participants.  Available through Handspring Publishing, click here to purchase.

Outline

Day One Outline - Upper Body

Morning:

1.  Introduction to regional interdependence and the Integrated Systems Model - Lecture

     -Brief history of evolution of the Integrated Systems Model (ISM)
     -Current research status on ISM
     -Relationship of regional interdependence and ISM to structural/biomechanical models and contemporary theories of motor adaptation to pain
     -How deductive and interpretive clinical reasoning are used in ISM to facilitate better predictions of relationship between impaired regions and determine where
      to begin treatment.
     -How to determine what system (articular, neural, myofascial, visceral) to treat


2.  Live demonstration of an ISM assessment for an individual with dysfunction/pain in the upper quadrant (head, neck or upper extremity) - Demonstration and discussion of what treatment would follow this assessment.


Afternoon:

3.  A deeper look at the thorax and its relationship to impairments of function in both the upper and lower body - Lecture

     -Biomechanics of trunk rotation and contribution of the thorax to head, neck and shoulder function
     -Congruent vs incongruent thoracic ring biomechanics - principles for determining when alignment and biomechanics (posture and movement) matters and 
      requires treatment.

4.  Live demonstration associated with a walk-thru lab of thoracic ring biomechanics for rotation with corrections - large group lab


Day Two Outline - Lower Body

Morning:

1.  The abdominal wall and its relationship to the thorax and trunk function - lecture with case presentations including the role of ultrasound imaging in both assessment and treatment of the abdominal wall.  Diastasis rectus abdominis will be included in this lecture.

2.  A deeper look at the foot and its relationship to impairments of function in the lumbopelvis and thorax and visa versa. - Lecture

     -Biomechanics of foot through heel strike to push off and impact of sub-optimal alignment, biomechanics and/or control of the foot and lumbopelvis and thorax
     -Impact of sub-optimal alignment, biomechanics and/or control of the thorax and lumbopelvis on the foot through the gait cycle.

3.  Live demonstration of an ISM assessment for an individual with dysfunction/pain in the lower quadrant (lumbopelvis, hip, knee or foot) - Demonstration and discussion of what treatment would follow


Afternoon:
4.  Principles of ISM treatment - Lecture

     -Role of vector analysis for determining which underlying system impairment (articular, neural, myofascial, visceral) should be treated
     -Stages of movement training from rehabilitation and beyond

5.  Review the treatment plan of the 2 cases assessed so far and demonstrated treatment (what to release, what homework practice to give, how to stage and progress movement training specific to this individual).
