Nutrition and Joint Health: The Gut-Brain-Body Connection and You
See Ginger’s newest webinar, available on demand, Nutrition and Osteoarthritis. It is a 3 hour CE and is available through Allied Health Education.
Registration through Allied Health Education (www.alliedhealthed.com)
This webinar provides research and methods for affecting osteoarthritis using the current evidence-base and combining yoga as a primary treatment modality. This course enables the clinician to use a system-approach to affect orthopaedic outcomes encased in a biospsychosocial model of assessment that is supported by both the World Health Organization and the Institute of Medicine.
Epidemiology, high-risk populations, and risk factors for development of osteoarthritis and related diagnoses are identified. Critical new research developments that implicate gastrointestinal health and orthopaedic outcomes are discussed and applied in a case study format.
In addition to a review of literature, Ginger offers clinical application for affecting osteoarthritis through evaluation of 21 yoga postures and other holistic CAM therapies for the therapist in acute and subacute or chronic phases.
Additionally, this course prepares the clinician to identify and recommend nutritional interventions within a biopsychosocial, multi-disciplinary framework in order to improve overall orthopaedic outcomes in the patient.
Understanding the gut-brain-body axis is a vital factor for the future of orthopaedic intervention in both prevention and rehabilitation. Ginger explains the history and current clinical status of this phenomenon.

What Students are Saying…
I thoroughly enjoyed your webinar on “Nutrition and Osteoarthritis”. You have great content!
I started taking yoga classes a few years ago after I was diagnosed with R.A., and Yoga has helped me considerably.
The information on the body’s response to stress/stress management (Yoga) and to nutrition was relevant and practical.
Thanks very much,
Nancy Ruiz, P.T.
