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.
