An Evidence-Based Approach to Stroke Rehab - Physical Therapy Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Key to Greater Independence and Mobility
Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and loss of independence in America. Today, there are more than four million stroke survivors. Regaining mobility leads to renewed independence. Being able to walk again is the most common goal expressed by stroke survivors. The ability to walk post-stroke is associated with improved quality of life, greater independence, and return to life roles. Post-stroke gait is characterized by numerous deviations, which increase energy demand, decrease efficiency, create the need for assistance, and increase fall risk. The ability to transfer and stand moves individuals toward functional independence. Getting people mobile again is the emphasis of post-stroke rehabilitation. In order to do so, therapists need to be able to identify deviations, determine their case, and design effective treatment programs.

This one-day seminar provides practitioners with the foundations and tools needed to effectively get stroke survivors ambulating again. Participants will examine the etiology of gait deviations and how the presence of each affects gait and the rehabilitation process. Using principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning and the reinforcement of normal movement, attendees will assess functional goals and treatments for each deviation. Instruction will be provided to identify patients who would benefit from an ankle-foot orthosis. In addition, body-weight-supported treadmill training, overground walking, and robotic gait trainers will be discussed. The class incorporates case study review, video analysis, and hands-on demonstration and equips participants with practical, evidence-based techniques that can be applied in any treatment setting the next day.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Help and motivate your patients to stand and walk sooner
  • Treat the impairment not the gait deviation
  • Discover tips to incorporate the principles of neuroplasticity and motor learning into everyday treatment plans
  • Achieve better performance from your patients and save costs using equipment you already have!
  • Discuss techniques to facilitate functional standing
  • Describe transfer techniques for increased patient independence
  • Describe and demonstrate evaluation techniques for assessing gait post-stroke
  • Identify and describe common gait deviations present post-stroke
  • Discuss and demonstrate treatment techniques for each deviation
  • Define the role of ankle-foot orthotics post-stroke and who will benefit
  • Compare and contrast overground walking, body-weight-supported treatment training, and robotics for gait training and standing training

What You Should Bring
Please wear comfortable, loose clothing.
