Course Description:

Joint Position Sense deficits and movement dysfunctions have been discovered and linked to various conditioning that are commonly treated in physical rehabilitation medicine. This rehabilitation continuing education course is directed toward educating healthcare professionals on how to make researched based assessments and treatments. The content utilizes current motor learning principles and gives insight into how patients can respond to various types of feedback and motivation yielding immediate improvements in movement, motor control, and improved retention to enhance both movement and performance. This interactive 2-day, lab intensive course will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants an opportunity for in-depth problem-solving and refinement of technique for using motor learning principles and motor control exercises for the assessment and treatment of conditions and dysfunctions associated with the head/neck area, shoulder, knee, and lower back pain. The attendee will leave with a good understanding of how to implement motor learning principles to any body part or condition.

 

 

2-Day Course Outline:

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the course the participant will be able to accurately:

 

  • Describe the stages of motor learning.
  • Define the differences between External and Internal focus and give 2 examples of each type during a motor skill.
  • Define the differences between Explicit and Implicit feedback and give two examples of each type during a motor skill.
  • Define two different examples of Augmented feedback
  • Define Autonomy of Support and give an example of how to incorporate this into motor skill learning.
  • Define Enhanced Expectations and give an example of how to incorporate this into motor skill learning.
  • Discuss the role of vision in motor learning. Specifically, the differences between ventral and dorsal stream processing.
  • Give examples of utilizing dorsal stream vision processing during a novice level skill.

  • Demonstrate Lumbo-pelvic dissociation evaluation in quadruped
  • Demonstrate evaluation of Cervical Spine Joint Position Sense Error in sitting
  • Demonstrate evaluation of Shoulder Joint Position Sense Error in Standing
  • Demonstrate evaluation of Lumbar Joint Position Sense Error in Quadruped
  • Understand the role of motivation during motor learning and give two examples of enhancing motivation to improve motor skill acquisition
  • Demonstrate a treatment consisting complex motions for a patient who presents with cerebellar ataxia
  • List 4 risk factors associate with knee injury or pain
  • Cite at minimum 2 publications that support the use of External Focus of Attention during motor learning skill acquisition
  • Demonstrate two exercises that facilitate the use of visual based feedback to help a practitioner observe unwanted substitution patterns at the knee
  • Demonstrate two exercises that facilitate the use of visual based feedback to help a practitioner observe unwanted substitution patterns at the Shoulder
