The purpose of this course is to improve the participant’s integration of the roles of the musculoskeletal & nervous systems in the management of the primary neurologically involved client. This course will focus on evaluation and manual therapy strategies designed to decrease pain, manage tone, and improve function in the spine and the extremities for patients with neurological disorders. The concept of manual therapy will be discussed in both orthopaedic and neurological theoretical frameworks, in order to provide the participant with a comprehensive neuromuscular and orthopaedic manual therapy understanding to effectively treat the nervous system. Participants will obtain proficiency in select manual therapy skills and integrate emerging evidence on manual therapy and pain neuroscience education for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.

Course Objectives/Outcomes

  • Manual therapy (mobilization/manipulation) can affect the nervous system for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.
  • Perform with moderate proficiency manual therapy (mobilization/manipulation) to the spine and extremities for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.
  • Apply manual therapy and pain neuroscience education (PNE) to optimize movement and recovery for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.
  • Apply manual therapy techniques to manage tone in order to optimize movement and recovery for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.
  • Discuss the concept of Regional Interdependence (RI) for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.
  • Discuss orthopaedic considerations for the patient with primary neurological dysfunction.

  • This was an excellent course that bridged the gap between the manual/orthopaedic world and neurologic patients in a very practical and hands on way. I appreciated the practice of all the manual therapy techniques and mobilizations we performed, and I really benefited from seeing clinical application with the real life patient treatment sessions.

  • The manual skills we learned could be translated across the neurological continuum of care. Our neurological system transcends the orthopaedic and neurological settings, and this course helps to explain that transcendence. Course Graduate
