Laryngeal Myofascial Release Course: Earn 10 hours of CE/CME!

 

Register today for the Laryngeal Myofascial Release Course on October 4th-5th, 2019!

Course Overview:
This hands-on course will equip healthcare providers with the knowledge and technical skills needed to effectively use Laryngeal Myofascial Release (MFR) techniques in the clinical setting. The use of Laryngeal MFR therapy may significantly improve the functions of the vocal tract in patients with occupational dysphonia.

Faculty:
Dr. Surve is an Associate Professor at UNT Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth, Texas.

Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor at UNT Health Science Center Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth, Texas.

Target Audience:
This activity is intended for practicing physicians, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, residents, and students.

Learning Objectives:
-Recall relevant anatomical structures within the head and neck
-Apply conceptual knowledge of anatomy by palpating required landmarks within the head and neck
-Discuss the principles, indications and contraindications for myofascial release
-Perform myofascial release technique to soft tissue structures with guidance
-Recall the steps for analysis of the vocal and pharyngeal tracts
-Perform each step of the anterior neck protocol with guidance
-Assess a vocalist volunteer using the anterior neck protocol with supervision
-Treat a vocalist volunteer using myofascial release technique with supervision
-Demonstrate proficiency in the performance of myofascial release technique to head and neck structures

“Sleepy, surly, spacey, sedentary, sugared-up, scary on the road, somatic/sore, and a bit less smart: The causal impact of short sleep in adolescents”

When compared against consensus guidelines, adolescents in the US chronically get too little sleep, especially on school nights. Sleep duration guidelines are based heavily upon correlational studies that link short sleep with many of the major challenges in adolescent health. However, those studies are prone to confounding variables, and the much smaller experimental literature has too often used non-representative samples, unrealistic “doses” of sleep restriction, and non-applied outcome measures. This talk summarizes findings from an experimental research program that examines the impact of realistic changes in sleep duration on demographically diverse adolescents across a number of real-world outcome domains. Findings suggest that short sleep, at a level experienced by many adolescents, is causally related to daytime sleepiness, inattention, negative mood, poorer mood regulation, less learning, poorer vehicle control on the road, increased somatic complaints, and an obesogenic energy balance due to increases in both dietary intake and sedentary behavior. Further, findings suggest that so-called “naturally” short-sleeping adolescents would often benefit from getting longer sleep. This line of experimental research dovetails with past correlational studies to show that inadequate sleep causally contributes to adolescent health risk, opening new avenues for sleep as a broad health promotion tool and as intervention in particularly high-risk groups.
