Full Course Description


Neuro-Motor Balance Trained Professional | Live

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Construct specific evaluations for multiple causes of loss of balance.
  2. Analyze results of neurological examinations and find the cause of balance disorders.
  3. Determine pathways and lobes of the nervous system that interfere with vision, vestibular influence during balance challenges.
  4. Develop specific treatment techniques for the individual patient with multiple challenges.
  5. Utilize TUG, Beers and multiple balance measuring tools to assess patients.
  6. Construct multifaceted evaluation of balance control including home environment, risk factors and state of the patient’s nervous system.
  7. Modify the patient’s habits in regard to nutrition and hydration and educate them in healthy self-care.
  8. Design safe living areas for patients with multiple health issues.
  9. Integrate Neuro-Motor exercises into the patient’s day.

Neuro-Motor Case Study – Multiple Sclerosis | Self-Study

Karen Pryor, PhD, PT, DPT, CH, ND, CFPS reviews a case study of a patient with MS. This seminar covers each area of the brain and how it is involved in function along with specific strategies to activate those pathways.  Interventions are presented throughout with a focus on re-wiring the brain for improved quality of life.  

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Evaluate MS patient with functions of the cortex and central brain structures in mind.
  2. Employ and understand rotational components to enhance balance during the gait cycle.
  3. Implement connections to understand the relationship of the thalamus and visual snow.
  4. Develop skills to discern differences in sight and visual memory in MS patients.
  5. Analyze a patient with MS with considering functions of the cortical lobes.

Neuro-Motor Case Study – Trendelenburg | Self-Study

Shelly Denes explores a case study of a patient with Trendelenburg gait.  You’ll learn strategies to effectively analyze observational gait by utilizing the results of the TUG (timed up and go) test.  By integrating neuro-motor exercises, patients will be better able to correct their trendelenburg gait and its manifestations including asymmetry and pain.  Specific treatment strategies will be discussed that include exercise progressions, rotational interventions, and tools to increase proprioception.

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Analyze results of observational gait especially using the ‘Timed Up and Go’ testing as the basic starting point.
  2. Develop specific treatment techniques for the individual patient with a Trendelenburg Gait.
  3. Integrate Neuro-Motor exercises with considerations for proprioception and fatigue.

POST-COVID-19 'Long Haulers' Acute and Chronic Effects: Evaluation and Treatment | Self-Study

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Determine neurological, musculoskeletal and organ system challenges during the evaluation process.  
  2. Determine cytokine storms and how it relates to multi-organ failure and coagulation. 
  3. Investigate post-viral autonomic dysregulation and how to rewire with neuroplasticity techniques. 
  4. Differentiate, accommodate, and treat rehabilitation challenges such as brain fog with poor memory of home program, tachycardia, POTS, and immune system challenges. 
  5. Investigate autonomic symptoms of night sweats, temperature dysregulation, gastroparesis, peripheral vasoconstriction. 
  6. Appraise anxiety levels and discuss changes in the emotional environment of the patient. 
  7. Justify proning in patients to increase oxygen saturation levels. 
  8. Appraise nervous system involvement HPA axis – hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal dysregulation related to COVID-19 and how simple therapy techniques can assist with re-regulation.
