Course: #3550Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Live WebinarTue, Nov 19, 2019 at 7:00 pm EST

This session will expose participants to contemporary and future advances in balance rehabilitation for persons with a degenerative disease. Evidence in the literature and practical videotape applications will reveal how to objectively test and how to create a corresponding balance program for this population. Considerations of diagnosis, examination results, personality, cognition, and environmental resources are only a few of the considerations that will be directly addressed in this session across the spectrum of multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson and related diseases (PD), Alzheimer disease (AD), multiple systems atrophy (MSA) and cerebellar degenerative conditions. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
