Do you feel at times that you have designed and delivered the best gait and balance program and yet your patients still have some problems with their balance?
This course goes beyond all you have learned about the effects of speed, strength and range of motion limitations as causes for balance dysfunction. You will leave with an in depth knowledge and skill in the postural dyscontrol, somatosensation and vestibular arenas. The instructor has taught and treated extensively in this area with astounding results with her patients and clinicians. Her skills in this area are unparralled. Take home innovative useable evaluation and treatment techniques that will dramatically change your practice. You and your patients deserve to receive this cutting edge information.
Analyze the impact of falls on the senior population and identify the primary causes.
Recognize the peripheral and central vestibular system function and anatomical structures.
Thoroughly evaluate the Vestibulo/Ocular system and how it affects elderly with balance dysfunctions.
Identify causes of central and peripheral dizziness, recognize the different mechanisms of recovery and how to impact them with therapeutic intervention
Perform treatment interventions based on an understanding of BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) for the geriatric population.
Demonstrate a comprehensive evaluation and treatment approach for postural control by understanding sensory and motor integration.
Create innovative treatment strategies that will effectively address postural control issues in the geriatric patient.
Compare functional tools for gait and balance disorders to achieve the desired outcomes.
Perform evaluations on patients with compromised somatosensory systems and apply appropriate treatment strategies with Anodyne Therapy and sensory integration training.
Plan an effective rehabilitation program, set measurable goals and use appropriate documentation for patients with balance impairments.
