Workshop Description:  High tone is a common clinical presentation following a stroke or brain injury.  Hypertonicity can have a negative impact on recovery of the upper extremity. This one-day virtual workshop will present NDT principles and intervention strategies related to managing the high tone upper extremity. The overall objective of this workshop is to provide clinicians with knowledge and skills to maximize function in an individual who has a high tone upper extremity.

The workshop will contain didactic information, group breakout sessions, detailed lab information with handouts, and videos to watch.  The session will have live, virtual interaction with the instructor throughout the workshop.  There is also an optional lab component for those individuals who would like time to practice the labs and receive live virtual feedback from the instructor.  Individuals who register for this component will need to have a colleague, family member or friend who is available for the lab practice.

 

 

Upon completion of this virtual workshop, participants will:

  • Understand the principles of the NDT approach to the treatment of adults with neurological impairments and particularly as applied to management of the high tone upper extremity following a stroke or brain injury.
  • Identify major impairments that interfere with developing upper extremity function in an individual who has high tone.
  • Explore treatment strategies to address impairments, and problem solve how to modify surfaces in order to facilitate activity in the high tone upper extremity.
