Course is approved for 7.25 CCUs through TPTA's Accredited Provider status.

Course Description:

Although often considered as separate fields, neurologic and orthopedic rehabilitation are centrally-focused on improving ease and quality of movement.  This course will review the principles of motor control and motor learning, discuss the components involved in recovery of function, and demonstrate how to integrate these concepts into treatment approaches for persons with musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions.

Course Objectives:

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:


1.     Identify and understand theories of motor control and motor learning

2.     Review anatomy and physiology involved in motor control

3.     Identify pathophysiology of motor control

4.     Describe the role of learning in plasticity and recovery of function.

5.     Examine the key components required for motor learning

6.     Know the three elements of effective neuromuscular rehab programs in an orthopedic setting

7.     Recognize cognitive-behavioral factors which may influence recovery of neuromuscular function.

8.     Understand the neuromuscular changes occurring with traumatic and non-traumatic musculoskeletal problems.

9.     Identify the factors that maximize learning and neuroplasticity in patients with neurological injury or disease

10.   Apply the concepts of motor learning and intensity of practice in treatment planning in patients with neurological injury or disease

11.   Integrate motor learning concepts into treatment planning with patient cases

12.   Evaluate and revise treatment plans of care based on motor learning principle
