IPTA is offering a special class for PTA's and SPTA's only in Meridian on April 13

Neuro-Rehabilitation Techniques for the

Physical Therapist Assistant

by Bradley Bechard, PT, PTA

Neuro-rehabilitation Techniques for the PTA explores the various methods of
encouraging greater independence and quality of movement through assessment
of the patient’s alignment at the trunk and extremities. These methods include the
Bobath’s Neurodevelopmental Techniques (NDT), developmental sequencing,
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), and sensory integration to allow
your patient the greatest functional outcomes possible. Emphasis will be on handling
techniques to either facilitate or inhibit certain movement patterns to assist your
patient through supine to standing and finally throughout the phases of gait. Various
scenarios, video, and lab activities will be included to demonstrate impairments
commonly seen with patients suffering from a neurological deficit.
