This course is for qualified therapists (Physiotherapists & Occupational Therapists) 'Specifically aimed at those working with neurological conditions but may be of interest to those working in other areas'.

Course Aims

By the end of this course the participant should be able to:

  • Understand the terms posture and balance as they relate to a 'normal movement' perspective.
  • Identify key aspects involved in maintaining the integrity of the upper limb in the early stages of recovery post CVA.
  • Relate the ability to control 'selective' movement of the upper limb to overall posture and balance.
  • Structure an assessment of the upper limb taking into account alignment, tone, patterns of movement, and relate this to potential for function.
  • Identify when an upper limb is/is not able to be facilitated and why.
Who will Benefit

This course is likely to appeal to qualified therapy staff working with adults with acquired neurological damage who have a basic level of understanding of assessment from a 'normal movement' perspective.
