Vestibular Neuro-Rehabilitation for the Spine – Helsinki

Hotel LIlla Roberts: Pieni Roobertinkatu 1
Helsinki, 00130 Finland
Oct 02 - Oct 03, 2020

Is this seminar for you?

* You’re a Chiropractor, Physiotherapist, Osteopath and Occupational Therapist looking at improving your clinical competency in managing patients with spinal related conditions including chronic pain, scoliosis, poor posture and balance

* You’re a new graduate or experienced practitioner, either with little to no experience in neurology and vestibular rehabilitation

* You desire to make a big difference with an increasing number of patients suffering chronic spinal condition including those with sporting injuries, motor vehicle accidents and falls

* Feed up with poor results using standard musculoskeletal therapies and outdated principles

* You’re looking for an integrated brain-based approach in managing challenging cases

* You learn best when there is a mix of relevant lecture material, reinforced with hands-on practicals

What you will learn

* Appreciate that scoliosis and other spinal conditions can be considered a brain-based problem


*  Understand the brains/nervous systems influence on scoliosis, movement and posture, specifically from the vestibular system and other spinal control centres


* Learn the latest evidence-based clinical neuroscience that is emerging in the causes and management for idiopathic scoliosis

* How to perform a multi-modal, brain-based assessment, including proprioceptive, vestibular, cerebellar, and cortical tests


* Consider how primitive and postural reflexes influence early neuro-musculoskeletal development


* Learn advanced techniques and protocols for managing idiopathic scoliosis, chronic spinal pain and poor posture that consider spine, TMJ, eye movements, vestibular, sensorimotor integration, and advanced neuromodulation therapies


* Add these neuro-rehabilitation therapies to existing scoliosis techniques, including manual therapies, bracing, and exercise

HURRY UP! Only 10 seats remaining at Very Early Price…

After June 30, or if sold earlier, tickets will be available at Early Bird pricing only
