Primitive Reflexes influencing Movement & Motor Control: Assessment and Rehabilitation by Sean Gibbons

There are now solutions for muscle tone or tightness that does not change, low tone or for poor coordination.

A sub group of patients have very poor coordination and cannot change it with traditional rehab. They also have significant deficits in sensory motor function, midline awareness and lack postural reflexes. Ninety percent will also have neurocognitive deficits and retained primitive reflexes. These deficits adversely influence normal motor control and make it almost impossible for them to learn specific motor control exercise. Some other patients just seem to have tightness in muscles that does not go away. This is frequently due to a retained primitive reflexes.

Primitive reflexes are brain stem-mediated, complex automatic movement patterns that commence in utero. If Primitive reflexes persist beyond their average lifespan they will influence normal motor control and can interfere with normal rehabilitation.

During this two day course, we will show you how to sub-classify patients base dupon their ability to learn specific motor control exercise. The Motor Control Abilities Questionnaire is an easy to use instrument developed to predict this and has high accuracy. The use of this questionnaire will be described as well as a physical assessment battery. The relationship between, neurocognitive function and primitive reflexesis also covered along with the relationship to behavioral factors and motor control.

 

During this two day course we will cover the assessment and rehabilitation of primitive reflexes in detail. Strategies for treatment in the clinic and home exercise will be described in detail. The course emphasizes a structured model for clinical problem solving with appropriate clinical starting points and suitable progression of therapeutic exercise. Specific examples will be used to show how primitive reflex inhibition can immediately improve movement and motor control.

The course material has other uses for neurology, concussion, pediatrics and in helping regular clients learn exercises more quickly.

This is an evidence based course. Several clinical sutdies of varying levels of evidence support the use of primitive reflex inhibition to improve neurocognitive funcion, reduce pain and disability and lear specific motor control exercise.

¿Qué obtendrá de este curso que no tenga ya?

Reflejos primitivos

Comprender el papel de los reflejos primitivos en el dolor, la función cognitiva y el control motor. Esto tiene una gran influencia y corrige el movimiento, las estrategias de rehabilitación y las habilidades de aprendizaje. Esto también es importante para la rehabilitación neurológica.

Proceso de Neurodesarrollo

El proceso de desarrollo neurológico puede ser utilizado para la rehabilitación de pacientes ortopédicos, la rehabilitación neurológica de adultos y niños, así como el reentrenamiento del dolor central y el equilibrio.

Factores neurológicos – Una nueva subclasificación

Nuestro razonamiento clínico promueve el diagnóstico de patrones de movimiento, tejido, mecanismos de dolor, factores de comportamiento y coordinación SNC. Esta última representa una nueva, pero significativa subclasificación, que representa las funciones cognitivas y motoras del SNC:

Control de la capacidad de control de motores

¿Qué pasa con la gente que parece no poder aprender los ejercicios que les enseñamos? Aprenderá a utilizar el cuestionario de habilidades de control de motores y una evaluación de la función sensorial motora para evaluar a las personas en cuanto a la capacidad de aprender ejercicios específicos de control motor. Usted aprenderá opciones de tratamiento alternativo para rehabilitar esta población problemática.

Dificultades de aprendizaje

Apreciar la importancia de las habilidades de aprendizaje basadas en el conocimiento en la rehabilitación.

Mejorar el control del motor

Aprende a utilizar la inhibición de los reflejos primitivos para reducir el tono y la tensión muscular y mejorar el movimiento y la coordinación.

Solución de problemas de control de motores

La resolución de problemas con algunos clientes puede ser difícil. Hemos desarrollado un modelo universal de resolución de problemas de control de motores para ayudarle a hacer los ejercicios más fáciles o más difíciles. Tenemos que dar a la gente ejercicios que puedan hacer, no los que no puedan hacer.

Metodología

El curso será teórico-práctico.


Objectives

Identify clients who are most suitable for treatment with primitive reflex inhbition
Understand the role of primitive reflexes in pain, neurocognitive function and motor control
Assess and rehabilitate primitive reflexes and recognize how they influence pain, and motor control
Use primitive reflex inhibition strategies to improve motor control, tone and pain
Prescribe exercises for patients to improve neurocognitive learning function
What will you get from this course that you may not already have?

Primitive Reflexes

Understand the role of primitive reflexes in pain, cognitive function and motor control. This has a huge influence and correcting movement, rehab strategies and learning skills. This is also important for neurological rehab.

Neurodevelopmental Process

The neurodevelopmental process can be used for rehabilitation of orthopedic patients, neurological rehab of adults and children, as well as central pain and balance retraining.

Neurological Factors – A new sub-classification

Our clinical reasoning promotes a diagnosis of movement patterns, tissue, pain mechanisms, behavioral factors and CNS coordination. The latter represents a new, but significant sub-classification, which represents the coginitive and motor functions of the CNS.

Motor Control Ability Screening

What about the people who can’t seem to learn the exercises we teach them? You will learn how to use the mtor control abilities questionnaire and a sensory motor function assessment to screen people for the ability to learn specific motor control exercises. You will learn alternative treatment options to rehabilitate thisproblem population.

Learning Difficulties

Appreciate the importance of cognitive based learning skills in rehabilitation.

Improve Motor Control

Learn how to use primitive reflex inhibition to reduce tone and muscle tightness, improve movement and coordination.

Motor Control Problem Solving

Problem solving with some clients can be difficult. We have developed a Universal Problem Solving Model of Motor Control to help you make exercises easier or harder. We have to give people exercises they can do, not ones they can’t.

Methodology

The course will be theoretical-practical.
