North American Seminars Introduces a New Physical Therapy Continuing Education Course, Spasticity, Abnormal Tone and Recovery Strategies
Date:9/29/2013

Franklin, TN (PRWEB) September 29, 2013

This two-day advanced physical therapy continuing education course is designed to provide progressive concepts to the medical professional involved in the rehabilitation management of the spinal cord-injured patient with respect to specific understanding of spasticity/flaccidity and mixed tonal syndromes. Understanding the complex and multilayered neurophysiological changes of sensory and motor neurons and muscle tissue following spinal cord injury is essential to understanding how to utilize spasticity/flaccidity and developing volitional control of motor output in a functional manner.

Further utilizing the healing and learning capacity that we now know exists in the spinal cord is the cornerstone for neuro-recovery. Expecting a higher level of functional outcome requires a paradigm shift in our traditional thought process. The focus of discussion in this course will be on current treatment approaches related to managing tone as a major portion of SCI rehabilitation.

Special emphasis will be placed on specific evaluation skills using standardized and modified testing techniques. Spasticity management including utilizing assessment tools, identifying neural vs. non-neural origins of spasticity, and advances in local and systemic medical intervention will be discussed. Participants will also be exposed to state of the art information to enhance their understanding of the motor control treatment environment for the spinal cord injured population including the use of static and dynamic weight bearing programs, augmentative movement therapies; and assistive/body weight supported gait intervention stimulating central generating processors. This course will also explore seating and positioning for addressing the effects of tonal changes following SCI. This will also include switch placement for range and control. Clinicians will be able to immediately apply the information from this course in the clinical setting and will be able to significantly impact the care of their patients by appropriately goal setting/documenting; and understanding the availability of current resources for the spinal cord injured patient.

This PT continuing education seminars will be presented in the following location sin 2014.
