Sensorimotor Control & Rehabilitation of the Upper Quarter
Describe the application of sensorimotor control & learning principles to upper quarter rehabilitation.
- Apply knowledge of pathology to specific decisions regarding sensorimotor control of the upper quarter.
- Present an evidence-based, comprehensive and systematic model of sensorimotor control to the management of patients with upper quarter pain, dysfunction and or functional performance deficits.
- Classify upper quarter pain / dysfunction patient groups in terms of specific sensorimotor control deficits and management needs.
- Explain the structure and function of key neuromuscular components involved in upper quarter control & performance.
- Demonstrate functional evaluation tools that are aimed at identifying functional deficits and measuring relevant sensorimotor functions found in patients suffering from painful upper quarter conditions.
- Execute specific locomotor and somatosensory fundamental exercise strategies that serve as a foundation for recovery.
- Implement corrective movement strategies that correspond with functional examination findings.
- Relate functional management strategies to clinical examination findings and manual therapy treatment.
- Connect cognitive and biopsychosocial factors to the prescription of a sensorimotor control program in patients suffering from upper quarter pain, dysfunction and or functional performance deficits.
