There has been a paradigm shift in the rehabilitation of spinal cord injured patients

There has been a paradigm shift in the rehabilitation of spinal cord injured patients. Although therapists must teach compensatory strategies for achieving mobility while muscle groups are still weakened or paralyzed, there are now activity-based recovery strategies that help sensory-motor function regain the capacity to generate real function. Coupled with home study instruction, this PT Continuing Education Course course combines evaluative and rehabilitative teaching with hands-on practice on how to best combine the compensatory and recovery models in spinal cord injury rehabilitation. The instructor will present case studies; and evidence-based therapy and medical approaches that offer the spinal cord injured patient an opportunity for recovery. This course will help participants with their critical thinking processes based on patient parameters of need. Based on patient parameters, the participant will learn how to prioritize and synthesize conventional versus recovery model strategies to maximize patient progress efficiently.

This live hands on one day PT CME Course is combined with an PT online continuing education course component. This course will be presented in the following locations:

January 24, 2015 (Sunday) in San Ramon, CA
June 4, 2015 (Saturday) Las Vegas, Nevada
November 20, 2016 (Sunday) Wilkes-Barre, PA
