Objectives

  1. Develop a specialty niche in your facility catering to acute and chronic stroke survivors.
  2. Evaluate stroke survivors with assessment skills, scales and scores for extremity functionality, balance and stability.
  3. Employ training interventions to optimize gait speed and reduce fall risk.
  4. Determine root causes for stroke related impairments for more targeted treatment plans.
  5. Investigate how exercise instills improved cognition and connect this information to treatment approach.
  6. Employ a functional paradigm to stroke intervention and assessment.
  7. Determine appropriate levels of intensity in stroke rehab to increase patient safety.
  8. Use evidence-based techniques to more successfully work with spasticity in post-stroke patients.
  9. Determine how post-stroke patients struggling with stability and walking efficiency can benefit from orthotic treatments.
  10. Evaluate pain alleviation techniques that can be applied to manage extremity pain in poststroke patients.
  11. Analyze how vestibular rehab can be incorporated into stroke rehabilitation to improve gaze stability and reduce symptoms of imbalance.
  12. Employ techniques that use the upper and lower extremity together instilling a proper messaging center to the paretic side of the body.
