Eureka Seminars

While Myopain Seminars features several trigger point and dry needling courses, Eureka Seminars offers a wide variety of outstanding courses that do not focus on myofascial pain. Eureka Seminars brings world-renowned instructors to the United States, such as Dr. Ruth Jones, Prof. Andry Vleeming and Dr. Harry von Piekartz, among others.

The Cervical, Craniofacial & Temporomandibular Complex

Mannheimer02This course program is an excellent preparatory course for the Certification Examinations of the Physical Therapy Board of Craniofacial & Cervical Therapeutics (PTBCCT) leading to becoming a Certified Cervical & Temporomandibular Therapist (CCTT). In addition, this course is a great step toward attending courses of the Cranio Facial Therapy Academy (CRAFTA) hosted by Eureka Seminars.  The course is developed and will be taught by Dr. Jeffrey Mannheimer, President of the PTBCCT.  The courses are designed to be combined with the Myopain Seminars Orofacial Dry Needling courses (ODN).

 

 

The course program consists of three 2-day courses:

Course CCT-I: The Sub-Occipital Complex

Fascial Manipulation®

Larry SteinbeckThe Fascial Manipulation® course program consists of two two-level intensive hands-on courses, combining theoretical lectures, demonstrations, and practice between participants throughout each course day. Fascial Manipulation® are being taught in over 40 countries! In the US, Larry Steinbeck is the main instructor.

During the Fascial Manipulation® courses, participants will learn to evaluate musculoskeletal dysfunctions with specific reference to the human fascial system, and to apply the Fascial Manipulation® method as taught by Luigi Stecco, PT. Lectures include the anatomy and physiology of the fascial system, an explanation of the biomechanical model used in application of this technique, and the anatomical localization of key fascial points. Emphasis will be placed on the evaluation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions (from history taking, to a hypothesis, to a verification and treatment) together with a methodology and strategy for treatment.

Foundations of Vestibular Rehabilitation

The Foundations of Vestibular Rehabilitation (VR-1) course features a comprehensive overview of relevant anatomy and physiology related to balance and vestibular disorders. Participants will learn effective evaluation and treatment procedures used in Vestibular Rehabilitation.  There will be an in-depth look at common presentations of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). Case studies using video oculography will help students learn to differentially diagnosis between BPPV, Unilateral Vestibular Hypofunction, Cervicogenic Dizziness, Migraine Associated Dizziness, and Central lesions.  Treatment strategies for the rehabilitation of these disorders will be presented. Upon completion of this course, participants will have the tools necessary to begin effective clinical practice in the evaluation and treatment of vestibular and balance disorders.  The course has been developed and will be taught by Tim Gibbs.

Pelvic Girdle Pain and Spine Course 

419149_610008785684165_1275548811_nIn September 2017, Dr. Andry Vleeming will be teaching the Low Back and Pelvic Pain course in Bethesda, MD.  The Pelvic Girdle Pain and Spine course will introduce participants to the most recent scientific understanding of the lumbo-pelvic anatomy and biomechanics. Clinicians will gain a new understanding of the lumbo-pelvic region and learn evidence-based practical skills immediately applicable in the clinic.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to study with the teacher who established the mechanics of the SI joint and the concepts of form closure and force closure.


The Private Detective… a closer look at physiotherapy for  pelvic pain, urinary, and sexual dysfunction (male and female)

Ruth JonesThe Private Detective course program is a unique course program offering “a close look at physiotherapy for pelvic pain, urinary, and sexual dysfunction.” The program consists of the PP-1 course with a focus on female patients and the PP-2 course with a focus on male patients.  In the US, very few course programs focus exclusively on male pelvic pain and dysfunction, yet, male pelvic pain is quite common in the general population, but also in high level athletes.  Dr. Ruth Jones, Ph.D., MCSP, a Chartered physiotherapist from the UK and co-author of the renowned book “Chronic Pelvic Pain and Dysfunction: Practical Physical Medicine.” In the UK, Dr. Jones works extensively with professional male rugby and soccer players and pelvic dysfunction is a common problem.

PP-1 COURSE PROGRAM DATES: June 2-4, 2017 – Bethesda, MD

PP-2 COURSE PROGRAM DATES: November 17-19, 2017 – Bethesda, MD


Temporomandibular Disorder and Craniofacial Pain

ph_karegeannesThis two-day course provides a basic understanding of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) and Craniofacial Pain (CFP). Participants will learn the anatomy and biomechanics of the normal temporomandibular joint (TMJ), as well as abnormal mechanics or pathophysiological mechanics that will require a comprehensive evaluation and treatment approach. This course is designed to help differentiate myofascial related pain from internal derangements, and educate on the interrelationship between the cervical spine and the TMJ. Lab time will allow participants to palpate anatomical structures as they relate to TMD and CFP, and learn how to mobilize the TMJ as well as the upper cervical spine. Participants will gain insight into a basic home exercise regimen for their patients. There will also be discussions about appropriate orthotic therapy, lifestyle changes, potential surgical interventions and how to build a rapport with the dental community and other healthcare providers so the best possible outcomes can be achieved for patients. This course is an excellent preparatory course for the CRAFTA courses. The course has been developed and will be taught by Michael Karegeannes.
