Description: The provision of neurological physical therapy today is quite different from the past. In addition to compressed rehabilitation time-frames that have been imposed, evidence from research is also changing what we do. This session will discuss a number of ways that neurointervention has changed, and how these changes can be incorporated in your intervention: Traditional neurorehab approaches have been enhanced by a deliberate focus on task-specific practice of functional skills and incorporation of principles of motor learning. Some aspects of intervention, such as strengthening in a patient with neurologic dysfunction, once inconceivable, are now supported aspects of practice given the appropriate circumstances, and principles and application of strengthening will be discussed. How do you balance these aspects for your patient? We will provide guidelines and suggestions to update your neurologic practice with a focus on improving motor control and strength for optimal function.
Your registration will also provide you with access to view the nationally acclaimed McMillian and Maley Lectures.
