We look forward to our next CEU talk at your office.
More often than not, when I am doing an initial evaluation of a patient for scoliosis, a parent will ask, “Is there something I could have done to prevent this from happening to my child?” The majority of the time the answer to the question is, “No.” That being said, I usually go on to explain the different types of scoliosis, what is happening to their child anatomically, and more importantly the types of orthoses designed to treat their specific type of scoliosis.
David Jeffries CO provided an inservice at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital to the Inpatient PT Staff. CIRS/Sierra Prosthetics & Orthotics offers 4 different CEU talks about Prosthetics & Orthotics. Each talk has been approved by the CTPA (California Physical Therapy Association), the OTAC (Occupational Therapy Association of California), and the Board of Registered Nursing.

Knoxville, TN, March 16, 2011 – Each day 507 people lose a limb, largely to vascular-related diseases, and 60 percent are preventable. The Amputee Coalition, a national nonprofit based in Knoxville, Tennessee, is on a mission to increase awareness about limb loss prevention and about those living with limb loss.
Handle with care and stay aware; 590 people each year lose a finger
Knoxville, Tennessee, December 14, 2010 – The Amputee Coalition of America urges safety when operating snow blowers this winter. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in a recent year, almost 600 finger amputations occurred due to improper operation of snow blowers or snow throwers. The majority of these tragedies happen when users attempt to clear snow from the discharge chute or debris from the augers with their hands.
We want to congratulate our own Jonathan Batzdorff, CPO, FAAOP, who received the highest achievement in continuing education when he was honored as a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthotics and Prosthetics at the Annual Conference in Chicago this past February.
Jonathan is the Clinical Director at Sierra Orthopedic Laboratory and has been a prosthetist and orthotist for the past 30 years.
