Applying Cutting-Edge Neuroplasticity Research for Functional Restoration After Spinal Cord Injury

Course: #2982Level: Intermediate2 Hours 152 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

Spinal cord and brain mechanisms underlying the control of movement adapt in response to afferent inputs such as stimulation and vibration; this beneficial neural adaptation, or adaptive neuroplasticity, is supportive of function and may counter the maladaptive plasticity that is associated with pathology of the nervous system. Using what is known about neural responses to afferent input, treatment strategies can be structured to incorporate stimulation and vibration into training programs to improve motor function. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
