Description

Treatment of the Hemiplegic Upper Extremity in Function:

An NDT Clinical Practice Course

March 30 (7:30am - 5pm) - March 31 (12pm - 4:30pm)

This course will provide 12 CEU for PT's, PTA's, OT's, and OTA's. It is recommended but not required that course participants have previously attended an NDT introductory course. Review of basic upper extremity anatomy and kinesiology is recommended prior to attending.

Presented by Jodi A. Renard, PT, DPT, C/NDT, NDTA Adult Course PT Instructor


Course Description: This two day course integrates the theory and treatment principles of the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Approach along with current evidence-based clinical practice for adults with hemiplegia resulting from stroke or traumatic brain injury. Clinical assessment and treatment strategies presented will be based on an understanding of the biomechanics and kinesiology of the shoulder girdle complex, postural control requirements for function and movement analysis of strategies to perform functional tasks. Unique to the NDT Approach is the emphasis on functional movement analysis to identify systems impairments; and the application of tactile feedback to enhance effective movement strategies for successful completion of meaningful, functional tasks. The information will be presented in the form of lecture, videotape presentations along with interactive problem-solving laboratory sessions to demonstrate and practice therapeutic handling techniques utilized in treatment to address motor dysfunction. A patient demonstration will be performed by the instructor to demonstrate the interactive process between movement analysis and treatment intervention for the upper extremity in relation to the functional postural requirements. The development of fine motor control of the hand are outside the scope of this introductory course.


Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this course the participant should:
1) Be familiar with evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for treating the hemiplegic upper extremity and prognostic factors for recovery.
2) Understand the biomechanical relationship between body segments and the postural control requirements necessary for upper extremity function.
3) Understand the theoretical basis of the NDT Approach; treatment principles and rationale for therapeutic handling consistent with motor learning principles as it relates to postural control and the upper extremity.
4) Demonstrate basic problem solving skills needed for assessment and identification of functional limitations, system impairments, and motor dysfunction.
5) Begin to utilize therapeutic handling to address system impairments; enhance functional outcomes and neurorecovery.



Instructor:Jodi A. Renard, PT, DPT, C/NDT was named a NDTA Inc., Adult Course PT Instructor in 2014. She received a B.S. in Allied Medical Professions with a major in Physical Therapy in 1995 from Ohio State University and her clinical doctorate degree from Shenandoah University in 2011. She was NDTA Inc., trained in 1998 and has attended the NDT Concepts Applied to Orthotic Fabrication course, the Advanced NDT Gait course and the Advanced Upper Extremity course prior to becoming an instructor. Ms. Renard served as a PT instructor candidate for NDTA Adult Certificate courses starting in 2007. Prior to entering the process of becoming an instructor, Jodi assisted in lab portions of NDT Introductory continuing education courses since 2002. She was a speaker on post-traumatic dizziness at the 2012 Brain Injury Summit, hosted by Craig Hospital in Beaver Creek, Colorado; The Grant Trauma Conference, Columbus, OH in 2013, the OhioHealth Neuroscience Symposium, Columbus, OH in 2015, and the OhioHealth Vestibular Rehabilitation Course in 2016 and 2017. She specializes in the treatment of brain and stroke conditions and vestibular rehabilitation. She has experience working with neurologically impaired clients along the continuum of care. She currently works as a clinician and serves as the Acquired Brain Injury PT Program Coordinator for the OhioHealth Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation in Columbus, Ohio.
