This course will use current principles of neuroplasticity as a framework to present therapeutic exercise and functional mobility training strategies for the rehabilitation of individuals post-stroke. Application of principles of repetition, progression, forced use, specificity of practice, and salience will be presented. Additionally, this course will translate evidence from clinical trials to intervention strategies for those post-stroke to ensure appropriate functional challenge and progression to optimize recovery.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

Download Learning Objectives

1. Designing Interventions to Improve and Not Lose Motor Ability Post-Stroke

This chapter will provide an operational definition of neuroplasticity and present the principles of “Use it or Lose It,” “Use it and Improve It,” and “Specificity.” These will be presented using examples from animal and human research with clinical examples on their implementation for patients post-stroke.

2. Right Practice: Repetition Without Repetition

This chapter will present the principles of repetition and intensity using evidence from clinical trials. Examples from trials that can be translated into clinical practice will be provided.

3. Considerations of Age, Time, and Salience in Goal-Setting

This chapter will discuss the role patient-specific factors, such as age and time post-stroke play in recovery. Clinical interventions that may interfere with neuroplasticity will also be discussed.
