Description

This advanced course is designed for those PT's/OT's who seek a deeper understanding of movement dysfunctions encountered in the home health setting. Learn advanced rehab concepts in orthopedics and neurology including vestibular, biomechanical, proprioception and neuromuscular control during functional mobility. Develop a more trained eye and improve your clinical reasoning skills, allowing you to more accurately assess movement dysfunction as it pertains to losses in function. Specific functional exercises, case studies, and instruction on documentation are included. This is a must have course for home health therapists who desire to advance their therapeutic plan of care way beyond the preprinted protocols and boring bed and chair exercises, and who desire to improve functional outcomes in the limited time allowed by 3rd party payors.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------***COURSE OBJECTIVES***1.
