An Introduction to a Brain Based Musculoskeletal Approach

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to a brain based approach towards musculoskeletal dysfunction. While everyone is different, those with pain often demonstrate numerous consistencies. Understanding how sensory integration affects quality of movement can assist in creating strategies to improve overall function. This webinar will discuss differentiating between soft tissue, joint or sensory issues while simultaneously providing strategies for brain based assessments.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the fundamentals of intervention, and why they are arranged in a specific order.
  • Describe the importance of central sensory integration and its relevance to movement quality.
  • Name strategies to facilitate improved central sensory integration.
  • Recognize the importance of the isolated integrated spectrum of movement.
  • Implement strategies to engage the nervous system in order to improve motor output.
