Neurological rehab is not the same old thing anymore. The area of neuro rehabilitation has exploded over the last 10-15 years and some of the things healthcare professionals used to do clinically have changed. There is new rationale and new information about how therapists should change what they do in clinical practice.
The course focuses on an clinical strategies of gait training for the neurologically impaired, treatment and intervention of stroke, Parkinson’s, MS and incomplete SCI, as well as treatment strategies and treatment planning for patients with MS, Parkinson’s, and post-stroke patients. Healthcare professionals are provided with a wide range of material that includes identification between different phases of gait, gait assessments using the ICF model, facts, clinical manifestations, and assessment/examination methods in patients with MS and Parkinson’s Disease.
This Seminar-On-Demand is 5 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).

- Recognize three participation level assessments using the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) model.
- Identify six treatment strategies for stroke patients.
- Identify three strategies and principles in rehab for patients with neurological deficits utilizing Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES).
- Recognize facts for exercise training for stroke survivors including exercise parameters, contraindications for exercise, and indications to terminate exercise.
- Recognize four key practice variables and strength and endurance parameters of one Progressive Resistance Exercise (PRE) for exercise training.
- Identify four characteristics of chest pain and lab values and medications that show limitations for exercise and physical activity.
- Recognize facts, three clinical manifestations, and four assessment/examination methods in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
- Identify facts, clinical manifestations, three treatment strategies and planning for the patient with Parkinson’s Disease.
Criteria for Completion:
