Finally – the missing piece! Assessment is the key to knowing what to do in a treatment. It needs to be done quickly and accurately and this is where you learn to do just that. Come prepared to learn how to perform a simple neurological evaluation, ROM testing, and utilize simple observational skills to help you determine what to do or when it is time to refer. Please wear shorts and a tee shirt. Most importantly – bring your questions!
- Posture Evaluation
- Perform a neurological exam
- Muscle length testing
- Identify sympathetic dominance
Goals: Understand the importance and place of neurology in the development of a treatment plan, identify and practice identifying assessments that indicate the presence of change.
