819 – Movement Disorders – Atlanta
January 26 @ 9:00 AM - January 27 @ 9:00 AM EST$499 – $599
Presented by: Dr. Marc Ellis
Movement disorders are by far one of the most misunderstood and most difficult of the neurological disorders to treat. Most people who get diagnosed with a movement disorder and undergo pharmacological management do not do well.
This seminar explores in detail the neurological mechanisms that underlie the most common movement disorders. From there we will you will learn how to quickly observe and categorize them and then with a better understanding of how the nervous system promotes them you will be better able to treat them. The treatment applications that will be spotlighted during the seminar are such that everyone who attends will be able to effectively apply in your practices regardless of the techniques that you currently use. The treatment applications have been derived from years of observations by functional neurologists around the world that have applied sound neuroscience involving the etiology of these movement disorders. You will learn how to bias the activation of the direct and indirect pathways through the basal ganglia that are involved in promoting the hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders. You will learn how to leverage the hyper direct pathway by using specific receptor-based applications further improving your results with dystonia, tics, and tremors.
This seminar is very clinically oriented. It is not a seminar that will simply throw material your way about the different kinds of movement disorders. But instead, it is a seminar that will teach you how to effectively treat these movement disorders through the use of clinical case studies where you actually get to see how we in functional neurology link the history to the exam then pick the most appropriate treatment that will yield us the best results possible.
So if you have patients in your office suffering from a movement disorder and you are struggling to get any result with them, then this seminar is invaluable to you. You will not be disappointed and will come away with an understanding second to none on how to better treat and manage these very unfortunate cases.
