Video Runtime: 64 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 48 Minutes

Long COVID frequently involves postexertional malaise (PEM) or postexertional symptom exacerbation (PESE), which break many of the physiological principles on how the human body responds to exercise. Exercise treatments that usually are effective for fatigue, dizziness, orthostatic intolerance, pain, and other signs and symptoms actually may harm people living with PEM/PESE. These observations suggest we need a different approach to provide care for patients living with PEM/PESE, including those with long COVID, starting with the application of first aid principles to compromised bioenergetic pathways.

In this course, you will learn current information regarding activity pacing, phased approaches to rehabilitation, use of wearable sensors, and service design considerations for people living with PEM/PESE as a symptom of long COVID. These topics will draw on lessons from another (commonly) postviral syndrome, myalgic encephalomyelitis, which may be applied to also help people with long COVID.

We are experiencing the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) as a series of successive waves. The first wave is the acute illness associated with suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection. Subsequent waves will involve people with persistent signs and symptoms, as well as delayed recoveries. These latent waves may be our generation's polio moment, and they require us to further develop our knowledge and skills to assist these newly disabled people.

Long COVID is the patient-initiated and -preferred term for the prolonged signs, symptoms, and disability after suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection. Consistent with known fatigue syndromes of commonly postviral etiologies, one important characteristic of long COVID is postexertional symptom exacerbation (PESE). In turn, PESE is associated with a whole host of neuroimmune and metabolic changes that may underlie the observed signs, symptoms, and disability of long COVID.

This webinar will describe the identification of long COVID and clues about its physiology from existing literature describing PESE. It will then introduce the concept of energy system first aid to describe how activity pacing strategies may be designed and implemented to reduce loading on dysfunctional energy systems. Specific ideas will be provided about how to inform pacing strategies with vital sign data from wearable devices.

Video Runtime: 48 Minutes, Learning Assessments: 27 Minutes

Long COVID is an emerging challenge to individual patients, to society, and to rehabilitation clinicians because it is difficult to recognize and manage effectively. Certain subtypes of long COVID resemble another condition, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), which also commonly results after a systemic infection. Insights from the clinical management of ME may be used to guide initial recognition of long COVID.

This course presents an overview of important symptomatic and functional similarities between ME and long COVID, as well as a model for clinical management of long COVID based on our collective understanding of ME. Insights from people living with long COVID are provided to include patients' perspectives as a prominent part of the course material.

This course is a recorded webinar that was not accredited at the time of airing.

Video Runtime: 56 minutes

While we all depend on healthcare organizations to help us stay healthy, the current model overwhelmingly emphasizes treatment of illnesses and injuries that have already occurred. This widespread reactive approach to providing health-related services has created a healthcare system that more effectively functions to manage disease and delay death than preempt the underlying causes of these conditions before they reach the point where serious medical intervention is necessary. Further complicating matters are the ways that traditional healthcare services and systems are regulated, paid for, and discussed in the United States, which all help create paradoxical incentives to care for disease instead of promoting a comprehensive vision of health. In this recorded webinar, Todd Davenport, PT, DPT, MPH, OCS, presents a new framework for rehabilitation organizations to implement population health strategies that promote health, reduce disparities, and grow their business. Todd will examine population health management models, discuss the causes of inefficiency in traditional models, and provide concrete examples to help participants evaluate their own organizational practices for opportunities to incorporate upstream approaches to care. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.

ME/CFS Part 1: Introduction and Identification

ME/CFS Part 1: Introduction and Identification

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This lesson is part one of a two-course series. Proceed to Part Two after completing this course.
Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) causes severely disabling fatigue within the context of a constellation of unusual signs and symptoms, which are associated with over-exertion. Because people with ME/CFS present with a whole host of clinical findings, there are multiple reasons for entry into medical and rehabilitation settings. The multifactorial clinical presentation of ME/CFS emphasizes the need for clinicians to recognize ME/CFS, in order to advocate for patients/clients with possible ME/CFS and to direct its appropriate management. The pathoetiology of ME/CFS is becoming better understood, and there is emerging evidence based on this pathoetiological evidence to support best practices in analeptic management strategies for people with ME/CFS.
This two-part course series provides the opportunity for attendees to receive the latest information in recognition, etiology, and analeptic management of patients with ME/CFS from a panel of established researchers and clinicians. In this session, the presenters will (i) summarize the clinical features ME/CFS with respect to optimal identification and differential diagnosis; (ii) describe the pathoetiology underlying the clinical features of ME/CFS; and (iii) provide an actionable framework for optimal analeptic management of individuals with ME/CFS that is based on current scientific evidence.

Heel pain is a painful injury that commonly results in prolonged and severe disability. While heel pain is the subject of a growing scientific literature, the accumulation of studies is so fast that it is difficult for the busy physical therapist to keep up and engage in leading-edge evidence based practice. This course provides recommended interventions based on the clinical practice guidelines for heel pain/plantar fasciitis and applies the interventions through a patient case scenario. Specific practical approaches and pearls will be highlighted, in order to help the learner integrate best practice recommendations from the clinical practice guideline.

Lateral ankle sprains are a common injury that frequently results in prolonged pain and disability. The research evidence for physical therapy management of lateral ankle sprains is increasingly voluminous, making it difficult for the busy physical therapist to keep up their reading of the latest research evidence in order to engage in evidence based practice. This course provides an overview of the clinical practice guideline for lateral (inversion-mechanism) ankle sprains. This first course of the two course series on lateral ankle sprain, will discuss the differential diagnosis, risk factors, prognosis, and clinical measures for patient reported outcomes.
