This informative and interactive recording, led by veteran Physical Therapist Shelly Denes, presents the etiology of specific neurological diseases, how the diseases progress, and effective goals and therapeutic interventions at the various stages of each disease. You will practice specific therapeutic interventions that Shelly has honed during her more than 40 years as a PT to help progress patients, promote functional independence throughout disease progression, and tackle problems that may surface during regression periods or complications of a disease. You will learn the pathophysiology, signs, and symptoms of the various neurological disorders to develop effective individualized treatment interventions including some of the cutting-edge treatments coming our way.

Explore new treatment strategies for:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Transverse myelitis
  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

  1. Identify key components for evaluation and indications for proper treatment and planning for patients with progressive neurological diseases
  2. Discuss physiological changes in movement disorders to effectively implement successful rehab programming for these individuals
  3. Implement sensorimotor integration as a global approach to balance and postural adjustments
  4. Utilize assessment tools using balance strategy concepts and advanced balance techniques
  5. Identify and understand the difference between upper and lower motor neuron changes with these diseases
  6. Learn to utilize skills assessment and treatment skills in neurological, musculoskeletal, and orthopedic areas to improve function
