An Evidence-Based Approach to Stroke Rehab
June 12, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MST
This one-day seminar provides practitioners with the foundations and tools needed to effectively get stroke survivors functional again. Participants will examine the etiology of gait deviations, aphasia, neglect, and their influence on the rehabilitation process. Using principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning and the reinforcement of normal movement, attendees will assess functional goals and treatments. Instruction will be provided to identify patients who would benefit from an ankle-foot orthosis. The class incorporates case study review, video analysis, and hands-on demonstration, and equips participants with practical, evidence-based techniques that can be applied in any treatment setting the next day.
