Treatment concepts to address subcortical tissue damage
At its very core, rehabilitation therapists use three general strategies during treatment sessions to positively impact patient movement performance: the tasks or activities selected for practice; the hands or physical touch used to assist task performance; and the words or instructions given to focus attention and guide practice repetitions. The specific implementation of these treatment variables to change motor performance will vary based upon the lesion location, the motor control of the functional activity being trained (gait, balance/postural control, upper extremity actions), and the patient’s potential for recovery or the need for compensation. The purpose of this webinar is to integrate the evidence surrounding the distributed motor control of gait, balance/postural control, and upper extremity function with the stroke lesion location and clinical presentation. This integration of evidence, lesion location and clinical presentation will inform treatment choices to change movement performance and to promote functional recovery. This webinar will focus on providing the how’s and why’s of effective use of tasks, hands, and words for persons post stroke who have sustained damage to the basal ganglia, cerebellum or subcortical white matter.
At the completion of this webinar participants will be able to:
