Course Description
When working with TBI and CVA patients, the therapist is searching for an evidence-based treatment modality to assist the patient in obtaining the best possible goal-oriented outcome. This course is designed to help you think “outside the box” and use the IM in conjunction with other modalities such as the Constraint Induced Therapy Program to help facilitate the patient’s ability to drive neuroplasticity in motor recovery for rehabilitation of the upper extremity.
