Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on the neurological interventions for physical therapy in multiple settings. Professional Objectives: At the end of this course the professional will be able to: 1. Identify and differentiate between manual resistance, irradiation, joint facilitation and timing of movement. 2. Recognize the upper-extermity D1 Flexion pattern characteristics used in proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF). 3. Recognize the upper-extermity D2 Flexion pattern characteristics used in PNF. 4. Recognize beginning positions and hand placements for facilitating scapular anterior elevation. 5. Recognize the lower-extermity D1 Extension pattern characteristics used in PNF. 6. Recognize the lower-extermity D2 Flexion pattern characteristics used in PNF. 7. Identify and differentiate between 11 PNF techniques related to stages of motor control. 8. Recognize bridging as an example of the agonistic reversal technique. 9. Identify and differentiate between 8 impairments and use of PNF techniques to treat these impairments. 10. Recognize prepositioning and manual contacts to facilitate rolling supine to right side lying. 11 Recognize half-kneeling as the last posture in the prone progression and its importance in floor to stand transfers. 12 Identify characteristics of ideal sitting posture including pelvic, head and feet alignment. 13 Recognize the importance of weight shifting in pre-gait activities. 14 List 6 progression techniques to help retrain a person with neurologic impairments back to a safe, efficient gait pattern. 15 Recognize the etiology, incidence and clinical manifestations of CVA’s. 16 Define arteriovenous malformations. 17 List and differentiate between 4 cerebral arteries and their distribution. 18 Define Pusher Syndrome. 19 Identify and differentiate between Brunnstrom’s 7 stages of recovery and their descriptions. 20 Recognize and differentiate between Broca’s aphasia, Wernicke’s aphasia and global aphasia. 21 Recognize 3 associated reactions and their responses that occur in patients with hemiplegia. 22 Recognize appropriate positioning for a patient with a CVA in the side-lying position on the uninvolved side. 23 Identify 3 techniques used to help prepare and assist in bridging. 24 Recognize appropriate use of modalities used in patients to inhibit abnormal tone. 25 Identify purposes and correct positioning for a foot splint. 26 Recognize how to test for shoulder subluxation. 27 Recognize the appropriate position and technique for advancing the involved lower extremity in patients following a CVA. 28 Identify 11 common gait deviations seen in patients with stroke including their possible causes. 29 Recognize disadvantages of using a quad cane during ambulation. 30 Define posterior leaf splints. 31 Recognize characteristics to monitor in patients with CVA’s during the performance of the developmental sequence. 32 Recognize the proper sequence for stair climbing with a cane. 33 Identify the proper position for sitting on a Swiss Ball. 34 List 6 guidelines recommended for considerations on patients’ exterior accessibility to their home environment. 35 Recognize causes and mechanisms of closed head injuries including contusions. 36 Identify scores of the Glascow Coma Scale for mild, moderate and severe traumatic brain injuries. 37 Define decerebrate rigidity. 38 Recognize 10 levels of cognitive functioning and their behavior description of the Rancho Los Amigos Scale. 39 Identify positions appropriate for patients with severe contractures. 40 Recognize the starting position for standing the patient who is unconscious. 41 Identify characteristics of a crisis situation in aggressive behaviors. 42 Recognize 9 exercises that can be performed on a Swiss ball for patients with motor deficits. 43 Recognize recent

By Suzanne “Tink” Martin, PT, MACT and Mary Kessler, PT, MHS. This course utilizes text from the softcover textbook by Suzanne Martin and Mary Kessler “Neurological Interventions for Physical Therapy” ©2007. This text provides a link between the pathophysiology of neurologic deficits and possible rehabilitation interventions for improving movement outcomes. It introduces the structure and function of the nervous system and describes normal motor development, motor control and motor learning, pathophysiology of the nervous system and common treatment techniques used in physical therapy practice for both adults and pediatric patients. This 512 page book with 715 illustrations has been broken down by chapters into 3 modules (check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession). Each module can be purchased separately or combined with one or all of the other modules as a bundle pack. Individual modules are available in our online format (PDF Download) available instantly, or by mail. Our mail order format allows our customer to obtain a hardcopy of the course materials. When you choose the mail format we will rush you your course materials the next business day via USPS Priority, UPS Ground or UPS 2nd Day Air.
