 Fall Back To Duke PT
70th Anniversary Celebration
‘Improving patient durability following ACL
reconstruction using a movement based construct:
building from the ground up’
Friday, November 1, 2013
1:00 – 4:15 PM
Course Instructor:
Robert J. Butler, PT, DPT, PhD - Assistant Professor
Dr. Butler is a clinical scientist, an educator and a mentor in the DPT
Program. His specific area of expertise is in clinical biomechanics. Dr.
Butler brings this expertise to the Movement Science sequence in the first
year of the DPT curriculum. His research is focused on the role of
functional movement outcomes in identifying and addressing movement
dysfunction as it relates to reducing injury risk, improving therapeutic
outcomes, and reducing the rate of joint degeneration. He has presented a
number of abstracts at national and international conferences and has
published multiple publications in rehabilitation and biomechanical
journals. Dr. Butler serves as a movement based outcomes consultant for
a number of orthopedic and sports medicine groups nationally and internationally in
populations ranging across the lifespan.
Course Description:
The course will focus on establishing a movement based concept for progressing
rehabilitation with specific application to ACL reconstruction patients. Following the overview
presentations, lab time will be spent focusing on how to progress, regress and lateralize
exercise programming aimed at improving movement quality.
Course Agenda:
1. Shaping Athlete Durability through Movement: Application to ACL Rehabilitation
2. Fundamental Core exercises: the soft core to hard core continuum
3. Matrix: Logic in Corrective Exercise Progression

‘Cervical and Thoracic Spinal Screening
for the Autonomous Practitioner’
Friday, November 1, 2013
1:00 – 4:15 PM
Hilton 'XUKDP Ballroom
Course Instructor:
Michael P. Reiman, PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, ATC/L, FAAOMPT, CSCS Assistant Professor
Dr. Reiman is an active clinical researcher, an educator and a mentor in
the DPT Program. In addition to his certifications as an athletic trainer and
strength and conditioning specialist, Dr. Reiman is a manual therapy fellow
through the American Academy of Orthopaedic and Manual Physical
Therapists (having completed a 2 ½ year fellowship program), is a USA
Weightlifting level 1 coach and a USA Track and Field level 1 coach. Dr.
Reiman has co-written the only textbook on functional testing, Functional
Testing in Human Performance, written eight book chapters on orthopedic
examination/intervention and training for strength, power, and endurance.
His current research and presentation interests focus on performance
enhancement, low back/hip pain, and evidence based examination/intervention of the hip
joint. He is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, National Athletic
Trainers' Association, National Strength and Conditioning Association, USA Weightlifting
Association, and USA Track and Field Association.
Course Description:
This three-hour lecture/lab-based course will focus on the clinical decision making process
(with respect to clinical reasoning and best evidence) related to cervical and thoracic spine
pathologies with concern for red flags (or serious pathology). Best evidence, as it relates to
screening for serious pathology of the spine, will be presented. Limitations of the current
best evidence will also be discussed. Laboratory examination techniques will be instructed
and practiced.
Course Agenda:
Cervical and Thoracic Spine Screening
LAB – Screening Assessment of Cervical and Thoracic Spine
Conclusions and Future Recommendations

Technology Classroom
Course Instructor:
Carol Figuers, MS, PT, EdD - Professor
Dr. Figuers is a Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy, Duke
University School of Medicine, in Durham, North Carolina. She received her
BA in Biology from Wake Forest University, her MS in Physical Therapy
from Duke University, and her EdD in Education from North Carolina State
University. In addition to directing the Physical Therapist Interventions
track within the DPT educational program at Duke, Dr. Figuers teaches an
elective course in women's health and provides local, regional and national
lectures in the area of pelvic floor dysfunction and obstetrics. Currently,
Dr. Figuers provides clinical services in the women's health program for
Duke University Health Systems. Her research interests include pelvic floor
muscle activity and incontinence in elite athletes and post-partum physical symptoms and
exercise habits.
Course Description:
This course will provide an overview of the many physiological changes that occur during
pregnancy and postpartum and how they impact the musculoskeletal system. Specific
examination and intervention techniques will be discussed and demonstrated, with a focus
on prevention of future health problems for new moms. In addition, special populations
including the pregnant athlete and high risk pregnancy will be reviewed.
Course Agenda:
Impact of physical changes during pregnancy
Pelvic floor considerations prenatal and postpartum
PT examination
PT interventions

Evaluation and Management of Benign Paroxysmal
Positioning Vertigo
November 2, 2013
9:00 AM – 12:15 PM
Duke DPT – Erwin Square
Kaiser Classroom
Course Instructor:
Richard Clendaniel, PT, PhD - Assistant Professor
Dr. Clendaniel is a clinical scientist, an educator, a clinician and a mentor
in the DPT Program. His training and scientific practice have made him a
recognized expert in the rehabilitation of individuals with vestibular
disorders. He is an invited lecturer both nationally and internationally on
the evaluation and management of individuals with dizziness. He has
authored numerous papers and book chapters on vestibular system
plasticity and treatment. He is the co-editor of a major textbook on
vestibular rehabilitation. In addition to teaching and research, he
maintains an active clinical practice treating individuals with dizziness and
imbalance. In addition to his faculty position within the DPT Program at
Duke, he has an adjunct faculty appointment and teaches in the Doctor of Audiology
program at UNC.
Course Description:
Positioning vertigo is typically the most common cause of dizziness encountered in the
clinic. This lecture and laboratory course will cover the identification and treatment
techniques for posterior, horizontal and anterior semicircular variants of BPPV. On
completion of the course, the participant should be able to identify the various types of
BPPV and be able to perform the recommended treatments for these conditions.
Course Agenda:
1. Identification and treatment of posterior canal BPPV (lecture)
2. Treatment of posterior canal BPPV (lab)
3. Identification and treatment of anterior and horizontal canal BPPV (lecture)
4. Treatment of anterior and horizontal canal BPPV
