Contact Hours:   15
Registration Fee:   $495

Identify the neuroanatomy, neurobiology, and neuroplasticity related to acute and chronic stress effects on movement and behavior. Identify the functional connections between body and mind in relation to stress, pain, and movement. Demonstrate interpretation of sensory processing and movement dysfunction of the nervous system Outline a new therapeutic narrative for understanding and explaining movement system impairments and neuroplasticity Demonstrate appropriate manual and movement based treatments, regardless of ailment, based on modern neuroscientific evidence Outline an interventional plan using sensory differentiation, intentional movement (including breath retraining), and introductory environmental changes to elicit positive changes in patients.

Whether you practice in outpatient, in-patient, acute care, orthopedics or neurology nearly all your patients are experiencing stress and it is fundamentally affecting how they move and perceive the world and themselves. This seminar is designed to advance clinical competence in working with the neurological and musculoskeletal issues centered around the neuroscience of stress and movement through the application of current clinical evidence. We will identify the relationship between perception, the autonomic nervous system, the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis, and movement to create a foundation for proper intervention. This foundation will then be used to develop assessment and treatment approaches to pathology associated with stress and movement. Designed for the clinician not interested in the status quo; you will learn how to improve your patient outcomes regardless of specialty or condition because the science of stress, perception, and movement is foundational to all human experience.
