This three-day program will teach you advanced diagnostic and therapeutic applications specific to the basal ganglia. This program builds on top of current the current best understanding of the basal nuclei and its integration in your patient’s conditions.
Structural and functional anatomy of all the afferent, efferent, and intra-basal ganglia connections will be discussed. By understanding Basal Ganglia neurophysiology and pathophysiology, learners will enhance their ability to both diagnose and rehabilitate patients with basal ganglia disorders. The role of the basal ganglia on posture, locomotion, movement, and cognition will be reviewed in order to appreciate the wide variety of presentations a clinician may see in patients with basal ganglia lesions.
This 4-day course offering is designed to elevate your skills to a modern approach to physical and neurological examination. Learn and practice the examinations skills you need to formulate an appropriate treatment plan for your patients. Review the physiology and assess the different levels of the neuraxis from end organ to cerebral cortex. Cranial nerves, sensory and motor exam, reflexes, balance & gait, video occulography and balance platform findings will all be discussed. Detailed explanations will be provided relating which therapies to perform relative to the examination findings and diagnosis.
