Maximizing Walking Outcomes in Neurologic Rehabilitation is a one-day course designed to expand the clinical decision making and treatment skills of clinicians working with patients post CNS injury. Course content emphasizes a review of normal gait biomechanics and muscle activation patterns as well as common pathologic gait impairments due to CNS injury. Clinical decision making guidelines focusing on the implementation of treatment interventions designed to facilitate motor learning principles aimed at walking recovery will be emphasized in this course. Case studies will illustrate management of the complex neurologic patient who presents with a variety of gait deviations. Participants will learn to assess gait abnormalities, select targeted interventions, and provide treatment interventions designed to improve walking recovery. The format of this course combines interactive instruction and hands on laboratory sessions.
