Enhancing Treatment Outcomes with Therapeutic Modalities: Evidence-Based Electrotherapy and Ultrasound Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

How, When and Why to Implement the Use of Electrotherapy and Ultrasound

Several textbooks and articles have been written on the subject of therapeutic modalities. Unfortunately, only a few of the authors seem to agree on the purpose for using these modalities and the correct parameters to employ for various conditions. With this lack of consensus, many clinicians have difficulty understanding how, when and why to use therapeutic modalities such as electrotherapy and ultrasound. Also, due to lack of quality research, many clinicians think ultrasound is a worthless modality and that electrotherapy is dangerous to the patient or clinician. Thus, many clinicians have decreased their use of these modalities, increasing their patients' recovery time.

This one-day seminar is designed to assist the clinician in his or her understanding and implementation of electrotherapy and ultrasound to aid the patients in recovery from injury. Based upon 17 years of laboratory research and clinical use, Dr. Draper is aware of the value that modalities can have in patient care. He will share his insights and several case studies regarding modalities in an easy to understand and objective manner. Each participant will leave the seminar with the ability to make an informed decision on when to implement modalities into their treatment regimens.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

DR. DAVID O. DRAPER, Ed.D, A.T.C., is a certified and licensed athletic trainer and has been an educator for over 25 years. He is currently a professor of sports medicine/athletic training at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He has 12 years of "hands on" experience working in a sports or clinical setting, including Illinois Wesleyan University (head athletic trainer); Brigham Young University (clinical staff); and Performance Physical Therapy (clinical staff). In 2000, he spent his sabbatical working as an Athletic Trainer for the Colorado Avalanche of the NHL. Additionally, he has volunteered for many events, including the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah. He continues to rehabilitate injured students and patients that regularly come to his campus lab. Dr. Draper received his bachelor's degree in Health Science from Utah State University in 1982, his master's degree in Athletic Training from Brigham Young University in 1984, and his doctorate in Education from Northern Illinois University in 1988. He was also presented the Eddie Wojecki Award for receiving the highest score in the nation on the 1984 National Athletic Trainer's Association Certification Examination.

An avid researcher, Dr. Draper has published over 100 publications in scientific journals, such as the Journal of Athletic Training (JAT) and Journal of Orthopedic Sports Physical Therapy. Seven of these articles were awarded the Outstanding Research Manuscript or runner-up from JAT. He has written chapters on ultrasound and diathermy for two textbooks and co-wrote a textbook with Dr. Ken Knight entitled, Therapeutic Modalities: The Art and Science. In 1997, he was judged the top researcher in the College of Health and Human Performance at BYU. On the national level, in 2001, he was awarded the William G. Clancy, Jr., M.D. medal for distinguished athletic training research (the fifth person to receive this honor). Dr. Draper is also a research Fellow of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) and has been named "Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer" by NATA, as well. His most recent research includes measuring drug delivery via phonophoresis and iontophoresis, and using ultrasound or pulsed short-wave diathermy and joint mobilizations to restore range of motion in patients who lack joint mobility due to injury. His methods have restored full ROM to patients who have had frozen joints for up to 27 years. He has delivered over 250 presentations at seminars and professional symposiums.
