Proven Techniques to Regain Functional Use of the UE and LE

Unfulfilled rehabilitation potential is one of the greatest losses a stroke patient may face.

But this comprehensive training will unlock the keys to improve prognosis after a stroke! Join leading expert, Mike Studer, PT, DPT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA, to explore how the principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning work together so that you can personalize care by presentation, person and performance.
  • Investigate the mechanisms of neuroplasticity- why and how the brain reorganizes
  • Understand the difference in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke – and how that impacts rehab
  • Debunk the myths of stroke: UE vs. LE; timing of rehab; and “where gains come from”
  • Adaptable interventions for the physical and cognitive changes for UE and LE
  • Spasticity vs tone: differences, precursors and the treatments for each
  • Enhance patient compliance with principles of behavioral economics: gamification, nudge, confirmation bias, familiarity bias, and loss aversion
  • Cognitive rehabilitation: dual task tolerance, function, impulse control, affect & awareness
  • Explore the future of stroke rehab: progress in technology and science

Patient beliefs and self-efficacy are more important than we ever realized – and they are both malleable. Learn how to prime the reward centers for possible success as you expertly balance patient autonomy, challenge, failure, and wins as part of your treatment plan.

And best of all? You'll be eligible to become a Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Professional (CSRP)*, for no additional charge!

Stroke Rehab Certification: How to Maximize Functional Recovery

Neurophysiology of Stroke: How the Principles of Neuroplasticity and Motor Learning Work Together
  • Mechanisms of neuroplasticity- why and how the brain reorganizes
  • Recovery of motor control vs. compensations
  • How the brain uses habituation, adaptation and compensation for functionality
  • Therapeutic applications for introducing constraints, incentives and avoidances in neuroplasticity
  • Understand the difference between ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke – and how that impacts rehab.
  • When should rehab start? When can intensity start?  When is someone “neurologically ready”?
  • How your interventions promote change
Improve Prognosis After a Stroke: Personalize Care by Presentation, Person & Performance
  • Debunk the myths of stroke: UE vs. LE; timing; and “where gains come from”
  • Balance the elements challenge, gamification, success and failure to maximize neuroplasticity for each patient
  • Apply autonomy as a catalyst for patient engagement
  • Prime reward centers for possible success – beliefs are more important than we ever realized
  • Shift to external, goal-focused feedback to increase retention for motor skills
  • Spasticity vs tone: differences, precursors and the treatments for each
  • Goal action coupling – and how this can deepen patient engagement
Promote Return and Choice in the Affected UE: Improve Best Practices for Recovery
  • Time spent, time expectations and repetitions are largely under-dosed for UE
  • Why you may want to focus on the hand first instead of the shoulder
  • Integrate tasks that force sensory information and motor contribution
  • Induce neuroplasticity with graded motor imagery: L/R discrimination and mirror therapy
  • Utilize bilateral challenges to increase mirror neuron benefit, intensity, gamification, accountability and functionality
  • Forced use applications for UE
  • Applications in overtraining: HIIT, error-enhanced learning and amplifying error
  • Add a dual task to increase intensity and attention
Promote Return of Function and Symmetry in the LE, Gait & Balance
  • Forced use applications for LE
  • HIIT and High-intensity gait training 
    • What is HIIT, what isn’t, and why we use it...
  • Tools for assisted functional recovery: weight-bearing tasks in function: transfers, ADL, standing
  • Defining improved gait... Independence, efficiency, quality, distance, speed?
  • Novel clinical applications: motivational and exercise attributes
Patient Engagement: Facilitate Compliance, Intensity and Attendance
  • Apply the principles of behavioral economics to movement: confirmation bias, nudge, gamification, familiarity bias, and loss aversion
  • Self-efficacy is malleable and may be the most powerful variable across all severities of stroke
  • Utilize the physiological tools of behavioral economics to apply nudge, gamification, and choice architecture
  • Understand the dynamic balance of autonomy in treatment
  • Fear: overcome with habituation, desensitization, reward cycle replacement, self-efficacy and wins.
The Future of Stroke Rehab: Progress in Technology and Science
  • Robotics
  • Virtual reality (VR) and Brain computer interfacing (BCI)
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)
  • HIIT, HIGT, task-specific circuit training, and early mobilization (acute care)
  • The resurgence of comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facilities (CORFs)
Cognitive Rehabilitation: Dual-Task Tolerance, Function, Impulse Control, Affect & Awareness
  • Recognize the most common sequelae of cognitive, affective, and attentional impairments sustained in stroke
  • How to constrain attentional resources to improve tolerance, function, and awareness
  • 4 simple ways to enhance awareness and maximize attention
