CORONAVIRUS & REVITALIZE: CANCELLED

In light of the growing concerns over the positive spread of the COVID-19, the IPTA and WPTA have made the difficult decision to postpone indefinitely the REVITALIZE conference that was scheduled to take place at the Q Center in St. Charles on April 24 and 25. This decision was not made lightly and we are disappointed. Many individuals have put much time and effort into planning all the activities that are a part of this event. We recognize that there are certain governance activities associated with the conference that still need to take place this year, but we also know that, right now, family and work obligations need to take priority as everyone assesses their personal situations and works to create the safest environment for their family, staff and patients. There are many factors relating to the cancellation that still need to be addressed and we ask for everyone's patience as we work through them.

Q Center, St. Charles, IL

Wisconsin and Illinois are teaming up to plan a two day conference with more tracks, bigger speakers, and an opportunity to network with their neighbors across the border.

“Tai Chi for PT” will be a presentation by Courtney Fishel, DPT, at Encircle Health (ThedaCare) in Appleton, WI on May 28th 2020 at 6:30pm (address: 2500 E Capitol Dr, Appleton, WI 54911). This will include the Spring meeting for the North East District as well. 

Summary

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise that combines relaxed, fluid movement with a calm, alert mental state. It is a non-impact exercise that builds endurance and enhances flexibility, balance, and coordination. This presentation will introduce you to the Tai Chi Fundamentals program including health effects, guidelines for practice, and mind and body principles. You will learn strategies to implement tai chi basic moves and principles into your physical therapy practice and gain a better understanding of tai chi to educate your patients who may benefit from this practice.

Speaker Bio

Courtney completed a bachelor’s degree in exercise science at Carroll University and received a doctorate degree in physical therapy there. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association. She enjoys mentorship through participation as a clinical instructor and she serves as a lead for support of our local running population and sponsorship of the Fox Cities Marathon.
