You will get a practical product guide including near-term advances in science and technology that could be within reach for both you and your patients.

Adult Central Nervous System Injuries' Relationships to Primitive Reflexes – Symptoms and Treatments Using Simple Neuroplasticity Techniques
Karen Pryor, PHD, PT, DPT, ND, CH, CFPS
Adults with CVA, TIA, closed head injuries, concussions, and spinal cord trauma demonstrate patterns of movement and dysfunction related to primitive reflex patterns. The primitive movement synergies present coupled with spastic tone qualities. Fortunately, you will discover how to treat these reflex patterns to reduce tone through neuroplasticity techniques. You will expand your skillset by learning how to calm the nervous system and reframe motor and sensory responses to promote active movement and increased function. Be prepared for a new and transformational approach to augment outcomes of neurologic trauma.

Visual Rehab after a Neurological Event: What Every Therapist Needs to Know
Michelle Mioduszewski, MS, OTR/L
When working with clients after a neurologic event, therapists immediately recognize physical deficits and begin to create a list of functional impairments. How often does this include an assessment of vision or consideration of the contributions of visual impairment to functional limitations? You will get a clear foundation for how to assess vision and recognize visual field loss vs visual inattention and how this impacts movement, balance and ADLs. You will learn effective techniques to conduct a vision screening after a stroke or brain injury and how to implement treatment strategies into your plan of care for improved outcomes. 

Brain and Body Connections: How to Utilize Neural Connections for Optimal Function
Karen Pryor, PHD, PT, DPT, ND, CH, CFPS; Mica Foster, DC
Move beyond the status quo of treating neurologic dysfunction. Discover how to assess the function and identify dysfunction of the cranial nerves as well as how findings can be used to treat complex cases. Through techniques including focused attention, meditation, multisensory stimulation, and more, you will gain insight for how cellular communication influences inflammation and healing. Direct application will be demonstrated through case studies in which etiology, symptom display and treatment outcomes will all be examined. You will leave this session armed with new techniques, simple home programs, and patient education tools to complement your skillset while improving treatment efficiency and outcomes. 

Aging and Cognition: Maximizing Intellectual and Physical Function
Cathy Ciolek, PT, DPT, FAPTA
Rehab clinicians are more frequently finding themselves treating patients that are showing signs of cognitive decline. Discover how to differentiate normal aging from conditions that require a referral for further assessment. This course will discuss the relatively new diagnosis of Motoric Cognitive Risk Syndrome and Cognitive Frailty, stages that are considered pre-clinical to dementia(s) however may offer target areas for treatment to forestall dementia onset. Finally, we will review the clinical application of exercise and medical management on cognitive and physical function with aging for those with or without dementia.

Neurodynamic Mobilization: Examination and Interventions to Promote Function and Relieve Pain and Disability: Upper Extremity
Theresa A. Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS
Pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, electrical sensations, and more – where do you begin to address the myriad symptoms of adverse neural tension? This training will provide foundational essentials of neurodynamics with respect to how nerves move within a complex system.
  • Refine your clinical skillset while identifying compromised nerve mobility as the origin of musculoskeletal dysfunction
  • Form a streamlined assessment and develop a variety of hands-on techniques to manage adverse neural tension
  • Confidently develop personalized home exercise programs to reinforce treatment techniques for accelerated outcomes 
With an understanding of and the ability to facilitate movement of the peripheral nervous system, you will elevate your skill and provide the results your patients want.  

Addressing Patient Behavior by Brain Lesion Site: Clinical Tools Specific to Patient Deficits
Jerome Quellier, MS, CCC-SLP
Simplify the complexity of neuroanatomy as you form a clear understanding of the clinical implications of how you can work around compromised structures in the brain. 
Attendees will develop: 
  • A framework for navigating the recovery pathway for each type of lesion 
  • Clinical implications for abrupt visual changes and an in-depth understanding of the difference between visual field cuts and neglect 
  • Simple modifications to your interventions that will streamline your treatment time and accelerate patient outcomes 
Build confidence as you unlock the keys to working with behavior barriers and engagement.

Neurodynamic Mobilization: Examination and Interventions to Promote Function and Relieve Pain and Disability: Lower Extremity
Theresa A. Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS
Boost your skill and confidence in differential diagnosis of peripheral nerve dysfunction in the lower extremities. Find out how to identify when radicular symptoms in the lower extremities originate centrally vs peripherally. Through the field of neurodynamics, you will be able to assess the dynamic mobility qualities of the most commonly involved LE peripheral nerves. Be prepared to look beyond the musculoskeletal system as the origin and end-all-be-all of dysfunction as you are introduced to common presentations in which hypertonicity of the musculature is secondary to restricted peripheral nerve mobility. You will gather hands-on interventions including soft tissue mobilization and customized home exercise programs to effectively transform adverse neural tension to get your patients moving with ease!

Neurological Considerations in Fall Risk
Shelly Denes, PT, CFPS, C/NDT, CGCP
Falls are NOT inevitable, even in individuals with neurologic diseases. New models and the neurobiology of pathological fatigue as it relates to Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and COVID-19 ‘Long Haulers’ will be introduced. Furthermore, the science behind neuroplasticity, proprioception, muscle tone and balance will be analyzed to reduce fall risk in this population. We will also examine somatosensory components of movement and the impact on fall risk as well as autonomic dysregulation and how to rewire the autonomic nervous system. You will leave this course with a comprehensive screening and assessment tools along with an awareness for how to use effective interventions utilizing neuroplasticity. 

One Size Does Not Fit All: Parkinson Disease & the Parkinsonisms
Therapy approaches for Parkinson’s disease are often overly simplified to one or two global approaches. This course offers the ability to identify and treat the different subtypes of Parkinson’s disease for enhanced outcomes. A classification paradigm will be presented along with explanations of primary tremor, rigidity, primary dyskinesia, freezing gait, postural considerations, destination, and why defining your patients' presenting characteristics structures the plan of care. Additionally, become informed regarding the most common Parkinsonisms and the subtypes under the Parkinson’s umbrella. Current evidence is presented regarding the how, what, where, when, and why of treatment for this challenging and rewarding population.   
  • Discover the neurophysiology of Parkinson’s Disease and Parskinsonisms, how they differ, and the subtypes of each 
  • Cutting-edge evidence-based treatment strategies tailored to the specific needs of your patients, not their diagnostic nomenclature
If you are ready for clinical applications that will immediately assist with differential diagnosis and management of these conditions – this is your course!
