 The integration of postural control and selective movement for functional activities (Part B)

Course Description: This BBTA module will include patient demonstrations, theoretical and practical sessions. It will focus on the assessment and treatment of the patient with more established movement dysfunction.

Course Aims:

  • To discuss the pathophysiology and consequences to the patient with established movement dysfunction

  • To link the evidence base and clinical practice

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explain the pathophysiology and consequences of a Upper Motor Neurone syndrome
  • Demonstrate a deeper understanding of postural and tonal variations within the normal population
  • Problem solve appropriate handling in neurologically intact models to align/activate distal key points
  • Draw upon improved assessment skills to treat a patient with established movement dysfunction
