Neuroplasticity and Neurological Disorders – Tucson
May 13, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm MST
This course provides a commonsense perspective of the immediate and long-lasting effects brain diseases have on the human brain. Presented are new resources, research, and ideas to leverage brain plasticity with the aim to reverse brain damage, and promote recovery. Included will be a discussion of the tools, and techniques therapists have to ameliorate pain, and reduce or halt potential brain damage caused by Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Acquired Brain Injury (incl. TBI and stroke), phantom limb pain, spasticity and headache. These populations, cumulatively, represent over 10 million diagnoses per year- in the U.S. alone.
Participants of this one-day interactive course will have global insight as to the profound plastic nature of the human brain, and plasticity’s effect on both amplifying as well as ameliorating these diseases and their sequelae. The brain is command and control of every one of the trillions of cells in the human body. Most clinicians have a little training that provides insight into this wondrous organ. The aim of this course is to equip clinicians with tools, strategies, and treatments to work in tandem with the patient’s brain to reduce pain and increase function. At the core of these treatment options is the melding of bleeding edge neuroscience with clinical practice.
