Description

After suffering a stroke, many emerge feeling trapped in a body that no longer works and fear the life they knew is gone. Furthermore, standard treatment strategies end with persistent long-term deficits and very basic gross motor skills at best. Your patient does not have to accept this fate and with the correct skillset, neither should you. Stroke rehabilitation does not have to be an either/or scenario – patients do not have to choose between walking or the ability to regain use of their arm!

While you may know techniques to facilitate movement in a flaccid UE and LE are similar, do you know how to improve each individually as movement emerges? Are you able to easily identify methods to “force” movement and drive neuroplasticity in motor control and sensory recovery? Can we re-create automatic movement (without thinking)? Don’t miss this opportunity to get answers to these questions and leave with a groundbreaking evidence-based skillset to achieve life changing results for your patients!

You are working with a 68-year-old patient 2 weeks after a stroke who is demonstrating minimal but observable wrist and finger extension + sensory impairment in their affected arm. Can you help this person achieve full use of their arm to dress, carry items while walking, open doors and turn on faucets? After this course – your response should be a resounding…”Yes!”.

Unfulfilled rehabilitation potential is one of the greatest losses a stroke patient may face. Don’t miss your opportunity to learn the skills needed to completely redefine what is possible for quality of life after a stroke.

Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA, has been practicing physical therapy for over 30 years, having received degrees from the University of Missouri-Columbia and the University of Indianapolis. He has been board-certified as a Clinical Specialist in Neurologic Physical Therapy since 1995 and has been designated a Certified Exercise Expert in the Aging Adult (CEEAA) by the Academy of Geriatric PT since 2011. Mike has served as the Vice-president of the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy of the APTA and has been the chair and vice-chair of several special interest groups at the national level in each of the Academies of Neurologic and Geriatric PT, Including Balance and Falls, Stroke, and the Practice Committee in neurology. He practices at and founded Northwest Rehabilitation Associates, in Oregon. Mr. Studer has presented courses and published articles on neurologic and geriatric rehabilitation since 1995 and has authored and co-authored over 30 articles on topics of neurology and geriatrics, as well as several book chapters on stroke, cognition, PD and preventative care. mike is a regular guest lecturer on a national and international basis at several universities and national meetings on topics of dual task rehabilitation, concussion, stroke, Parkinson's Disease, balance, motor control, motor learning in rehabilitation and sport performance, cognitive impairment and case management. He was awarded the 2011 Clinician of the Year by the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy and again in 2014 by the Academy of Geriatric PT - the first to receive this national distinction from each entity. In 2021, Mike received the Mercedes Weiss Service award from APTA Oregon. Mike achieved fellowship status through the APTA in 2020 for achievements in clinical practice, research, education, and leadership.

Objectives

  1. Analyze objective assessment data to gauge prognosis, treatment timeline and progression.
  2. Propose 3 techniques to successfully facilitate motion in the flaccid UE and LE.
  3. Investigate evidence-based applications for post stroke gait training to achieve independent community ambulation.
  4. Demonstrate how to use dual task interference to promote automaticity in recovery of mobility and ADLs.
  5. Discriminate spasticity vs tone, the functional implications, and the best evidence in management of each.
  6. Propose 3 applications of forced use therapy for LE motor recovery.

Outline

Severe stroke mechanisms and prognostic guidelines
  • When you have seen one stroke…you have seen one
  • Applications specific to mechanism and severity – learn how to tailor your approach to the stage of recovery
  • Determine prognosis and timelines for the UE and LE
    • 1x/week, 3x/week, place treatment plan on hold?
    • How long can a person continue to recover after a stroke?
  • Spasticity vs tone are not the same problem
    • Discover the difference and the treatment for each

Apply evidence to drive neuroplasticity:
Upper Extremity

  • Flaccid to “Found”
    • Facilitate movement from a flaccid wrist or hand
  • Found to Function
    • Advance the UE from being available, to being “chosen”
  • Force more recovery: CIMT and beyond – Techniques and tasks beyond a constraint

Apply evidence to drive neuroplasticity:
Lower Extremity & Fall Risk

  • Tasks and activities to facilitate movement
  • Develop neuromuscular resources
    • Strength, endurance, motor control and balance
  • Forced use in action for LE recovery
    • Incorporate evidence-based practice

Engage our patients to optimize outcomes

  • Apply the OPTIMAL theory of motor learning
  • Autonomy, enhanced expectancies, and external focus
  • Behavioral economics in rehabilitation
  • Identify traits of bias, decision making and choice architecture
  • Facilitate compliance, intensity, and attendance

Target Audience

  • Physical Therapists/Physical Therapist Assistants
