Neuroplasticity: A novel and practical clinical application to induce functional improvement
April 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This event will be held at the Providence Portland Medical Center. It is a part of the annual “Mike Studer Lecture Series”.
This course will reveal a novel and intense clinical approach built specifically for persons that are 6 months or more in recovery post cerebrovascular accident (CVA); with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) after brain injury or surgery (from concussion, to TBI, to tumor) , .This approach includes Interventions that are designed and built directly from evidence and are adapted with consideration for the unique attributes of changes in the body and brain months and years after CVA/brain injury and with disease-onset for years. Additionally, this application will reveal incorporation of recent advances in motivation, motor learning, and practice – displaying all through videotape case study demonstration. Attendees will be engaged in a thought-provoking presentation that challenges previous misconceptions about the timeline of recovery and potential for improvement years after CVA and the potential to recover with MS, PD, concussion in the elderly, etc. This presentation builds on recent evidence of high-intensity interval training, procedural memory training, circuit training, task specific overtraining, motor learning, OPTIMAL, forced-use and many more – across mobility, communication, cognition and ADL applications. providing the learner from all practice points with tools to rehabilitate clients regardless of equipment and technological availability.
