This course will cover the most up-to-date research in neuroplasticity and connect it to rehabilitation techniques. Only recently have neuroscience research techniques allowed investigation into brain rehabilitation. Through these tools we are gaining valuable insight into motor control and cognition, and how function is recovered after neurological insult. Our skilled therapeutic interventions can be fine tuned to drive the processes that enable the brain to repair itself. This course will combine the latest evidence in neuroplasticity, motor control and physiology in order to identify and sequence a custom treatment plan tailored to the brain injury survivor. Hands on lab sessions will further facilitate proper examination and treatment interventions designed to engage the survivor and promote a rehab program that translates to daily life. Finally, case scenarios will be incorporated to pair clinical reasoning to situations that are encountered in the clinical setting.
At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:
1. Identify at least 2 types of primary & secondary injuries that can occur in a client with a brain trauma.
2. Compare at least 3 factors that differentiate the traditional concepts of concussion from the current concepts of mild brain injury in a traumatize patient.
3. Given literature within the past 5 years, select at least 3 criteria that constitute current best practice recommendations for return to activity/sport in a person with a mild brain injury.
4. Identify at least 3 key concepts that can be applied to your own existing practice, to optimize positive neuroplasticity and/or maximize the treatment effect of a person who experienced a traumatic brain injury.
5. Identify attention as a foundational component of neurological treatment and demonstrate ways to maximize patient attention to treatment.
