Rehab Management of Multiple Sclerosis: What You Need to Know

Description

Persons with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are being referred to therapy in increasingly greater numbers. However, the training that most clinicians receive is often inadequate to meet the needs of these patients. The training received in school is frequently inadequate to meet the needs of these patients
and often results in poor outcomes and reluctance on the part of physicians to refer to therapy for these patients in the future. The purpose of this course is to present the most current evidence on the topic of rehabilitation interventions for persons with MS, a clear understanding of the neuropathology and how it contributes to a unique presentation, followed by a description of common impairments and functional limitations. As MS is a disease that results in progressive neurologic degeneration, information regarding management of the disease over the spectrum of time and disability will also be emphasized. Examination and intervention strategies for both common and uncommon presentations will be presented. Case studies will be used to emphasize the spectrum of disability.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to recognize how the distinct pathology of multiple sclerosis results in its unique clinical presentation.
  2. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to describe the impact of specific medical management on therapy practice in persons with MS.
  3. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to analyze the findings on a physical therapy examination for persons with multiple sclerosis to attain an accurate picture of the patients’ specific mobility deficits.
  4. By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to design a treatment plan for a patient with multiple sclerosis that addresses the unique set of impairments found on the evaluation.
