Description
EVIDENCE BASED MEDICAL AND PHYSICAL THERAPY INTERVENTIONS FOR PERSONS WITH NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASE
This course will focus on an evidence based comparison of newer vs. Older `techniques' used in the field of neurologic rehabilitation. Students will be asked to explore the evidence basis that supports or refutes use of these various approaches and techniques currently in use. Newer approaches to neurological rehabilitation will also be discussed-these include: constraint induced movement therapy, virtual reality, robotics, and deweighting. Lab and clinic visits will be incorporated into this course so that students will be able to see some of the techniques `in action'.
