Arm weakness after neurologic injury is one of the most common and debilitating impairments in all of rehabilitation. Now, you can learn the most well-known and intensively studied neurorehabilitative therapy, taught by one of its pioneers! Learn from Dr. Page, who was the first to develop and implement modified, distributed versions of constraint-induced therapy, and to show that this reimbursable outpatient approach changes the brains and movements of patients even decades after brain injury and stroke. In this introductory course, Dr. Page will introduce the rationale, scientific basis, and practical application of modified constraint induced therapy into your clinic, including applications to the upper and lower extremities and speech. Tips and techniques from this area of research are offered that can be applied to a variety of neurorehabilitative therapies.

Stephen Page, PhD, MS, OTR/L, FAHA, FACRM, FAOTA

Dr. Page’s team develops and tests approaches that increase function and independence after stroke and other neurologic diseases. He has held uninterrupted extramural funding to support his rehabilitative trials for over 15 years, and has produced many "firsts" in neurorehabilitation, developing and showing efficacy of mental practice, portable robotics, modified constraint-induced therapy, functional electrical stimulation,…

1. Therapy Rationale and Evidence

Chapter one will describe the phenomenon of learned nonuse in neurologic populations, its relationship to neuroplasticity, the rationale and development of CIT, and challenges associated with its practical clinical administration.

2. Getting Started

This chapter details the techniques and outcome measures that are used to initiate mCIT in the clinic, including how to screen for the right candidates, the outcome measures that are used.

3. Clinical Application

The last chapter of this course will introduce the user to the practical implementation of mCIT in the clinic and at home. Demonstrations will be shown to explain how the therapy is implemented and adjunctive tools used to increase its efficacy.
