Motor Learning Strategies to Improve Performance and Movement

MG.header.logo2_x100.png

Course Description


Joint Position Sense deficits and movement dysfunctions have been discovered and linked to
various conditioning that are commonly treated in physical rehabilitation medicine. This rehabilitation continuing education course is directed toward educating healthcare professionals on how to make researched based assessments and treatments. The content utilizes current motor learning principles and gives insight into how patients can respond to various types of feedback and motivation yielding immediate improvements in movement, motor control, and improved retention to enhance both movement and performance. This interactive 2-day, lab intensive course will include lecture, patient demonstrations, and lab time to give the participants an opportunity for in-depth problem-solving and
refinement of technique for using motor learning principles and motor control exercises for the assessment and treatment of conditions and dysfunctions associated with the head/neck area, shoulder, knee, and lower back pain. The attendee will leave with a good understanding of how to implementmotor learning principles to any body part or condition.

The following conditions will be discussed:
• Whiplash Associated Disorder
• Concussion
• Chronic Neck pain
• Rotator Cuff related shoulder pain
• Shoulder instability
• Patello-femoral pain
• ACL deficiency
• Post-Operative Knee conditions
• Return to Participation testing and performance training for the lower chain
• Chronic Lower Back pain

.....AND MANY MORE!!!!!!

In addition, the course will provide instruction in the use of the Motion Guidance Visual Feedback system developed by G. Talmadge Blair, PT, DPT.


Learning Objectives

By the end of the course the participant will be able to accurately:
• Describe the stages of motor learning.

• Define the differences between External and Internal focus and give 2 examples of each
type during a motor skill.
• Define the differences between Explicit and Implicit feedback and give two examples of
each type during a motor skill.
• Define two different examples of Augmented feedback
• Define Autonomy of Support and give an example of how to incorporate this into motor
skill learning.
• Define Enhanced Expectations and give an example of how to incorporate this into motor
skill learning.
• Discuss the role of vision in motor learning. Specifically, the differences between ventral
and dorsal stream processing.
• Give examples of utilizing dorsal stream vision processing during a novice level skill.
• Give examples of utilizing dorsal stream vision processing during an expert level skill.
• Demonstrate Lumbo-pelvic dissociation evaluation in quadruped
• Demonstrate evaluation of Cervical Spine Joint Position Sense Error in sitting
• Demonstrate evaluation of Shoulder Joint Position Sense Error in Standing
• Demonstrate evaluation of Lumbar Joint Position Sense Error in Quadruped
• Understand the role of motivation during motor learning and give two examples of
enhancing motivation to improve motor skill acquisition
• Demonstrate a treatment consisting complex motions for a patient who presents with
cerebellar ataxia
• List 4 risk factors associate with knee injury or pain
• Cite at minimum 2 publications that support the use of External Focus of Attention during
motor learning skill acquisition
• Demonstrate two exercises that facilitate the use of visual based feedback to help a
practitioner observe unwanted substitution patterns at the knee
• Demonstrate two exercises that facilitate the use of visual based feedback to help a
practitioner observe unwanted substitution patterns at the Shoulder
