Rewiring the Brain for Better Recovery 
More and more, people are coming through our doors for treatment post-stroke. However, we find ourselves torn between promoting “recovery” and the reality of ever-decreasing rehab length of stays, which force us to focus on function alone. This pressure can cause us to resort to quick fixes or shortcuts that may help in the short-term, but may not have proper evidence for long-term recovery. Stroke rehab is not a quick fix. The fact is that we are increasingly pressured to provide evidence that our interventions are working (can someone say G Codes!). The critical necessity for rehabilitation professionals to act decisively, responsibly, and effectively with this growing population cannot be overstated. 

Get the roadmap to stroke rehab that actually leads to recovery in this impactful one-day course. During the course. You will discuss common impairments seen in stroke (e.g., apraxia, neglect, pusher syndrome) and the interventions based on current principles of neuroplasticity to treat these impairments. Evidence-based treatments of the hemiparetic/hemiplegic upper and lower extremities after stroke will be covered as well. By the end of the course, you will walk away with the tools and resources needed to effectively improve outcomes for your stroke patients. 

  • Recall basic concepts of motor control as they apply to persons with stroke

  • Apply basic principles of motor learning to persons with stroke

  • List the causes and evidence-based treatments for some common impairments in stroke

  • Recognize some of the commonly used outcome measures in stroke rehabilitation

  • Determine the basic features of gait after stroke, as well as bracing options and a defined treatment protocol for gait recovery after stroke

  • List evidence-based approaches for treatment of all extremities after stroke, including determining prognosis for recovery

  • Analyze differences between various forms of weakness involving force production, timing, and sustainability
