Course Description

This course utilizes content from the textbook “Neurological Rehabilitation” by Darcy A. Umphred, PT, PhD, FAPTA, Rolando T. Lazaro, PT, PhD, DPT, GCS, Margaret L. Roller, PT, MS, DPT, and Gordon U. Burton, PhD, OTR/L © 2013, published by Elsevier.

Instructional Level: Beginner to Intermediate

This text provides expert guidance on the therapeutic management of people with functional movement limitations and quality of life issues following a neurological event.  From an essential review of basic theory and commonly used intervention strategies to the latest screening and diagnostic tests, plus new treatment approaches for today’s clinical practice.

A problem solving approach helps you apply your knowledge to examinations, evaluations, prognoses, and interventions for movement disorders initially caused by peripheral or central nervous system problems.  Included at the end of each section are case examples providing opportunities for the readers to deal with specific movement problems seen in patients.  Also included are case studies that use real-world examples to improve problem-solving skills.

To better meet your professional needs, this fully illustrated text of 1262 pages has been carefully broken down by sections into 9 modules.  Each module approved for 10 contact hours of post-graduate continuing education (NOTE: board approvals vary state to state, please check your states approval status in the state specific course catalog by returning to our home page and entering both your state and profession).

Each 10 contact hour module can be purchased individually or combined with one or all of the other modules from this course to create a Course Bundle.  Each course is offered in two easy formats to again meet your professional needs.  You can choose to have immediate access to your course by selecting the online format (PDF download) or a hard copy of the material can be rushed to your home by selecting our mail format.
