FNOR 3: NEURO-ORTHOPEDIC APPROACH TO REHABILITATION OF THE UPPER QUARTER
Neuro-Orthopedic Approach to Rehabilitation of the Upper Quarter
Through a fast-paced, application-rich exploration of the functions of the upper quadrant, especially the dynamic shoulder, the practitioner develops an integrative understanding through the perspectives of biomechanics, pathology, pain science, and clinical neuroscience (incl. peripheral and central functions.) Through the presentation of a simple, highly-effective, rehabilitation approach to the shoulder and upper limb, FNOR III lays the foundation for subsequent courses that develop the integrative, clinical neuroscience-dominant approach that differentiates this system from other current rehabilitation approaches. This system is applicable in a range of contexts, including acute, post-injury phase to chronic, complex, treatment-resistant presentations. Techniques can be applied to the full spectrum of patients ranging from highly unstable individuals to high performance athletes. Developed in a high-volume, orthopedic physical therapy setting, this system is efficient, practical and characterized by unusual effectiveness and great results!
Key Concepts include:
- Further development sand integration of the Functional Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitation approach.
- Diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neurogenic inflammation in common orthopedic, post-surgical and painful conditions.
- Robust analgesic and pain management strategies for the upper quadrant conditions.
- Arthrokinematics of the Upper Quadrant.
- Neuroscience approach to corrective exercises applications for upper quadrant. • Dynamic assessment and functional examination techniques.
- Post-surgical pain and complications in the post-surgical phase of care.
- Common, surgical and interventional procedures involving the Upper Quadrant. •
- Development of effective, efficient rehabilitation programs for common upper quadrant conditions (incl. shoulder pain, rotator cuff and labral injury, impingement syndromes, shoulder instability, cervicothoracic pain, chronic upper limb pain syndromes, medial and lateral compartment elbow pathology.)
