Course Description
This is a 2-day introductory level course open to Physiotherapists and Occupational therapists. Participants will be introduced to fundamental aspects of the Bobath Concept in order to expand their clinical assessment and treatment skills and optimize functional recovery for their clients.

This highly practical course utilizes a best practice approach that blends theoretical evidence presented in lecture format with clinical expertise through client demonstrations and practical labs. Participants will be guided through the clinical reasoning process to analyze posture and movement in a hands-on and interactive manner. Skills taught will be readily translatable to the clinical setting for use with both neurological and non-neurological populations in a variety of care settings.

The course participant will gain an understanding of:
-The causes and treatment/management strategies of the painful hemiplegic shoulder
-The anatomy and biomechanics of the shoulder girdle
-The neurophysiology related to postural control, scapula set and reach
-The role of facilitation in the recovery of scapulothoracic stability
