Developing Post Surgical Rehab Programs for the Cervical and Lumbar Spine – North American Seminars Inc.

June 25, 2016 - June 26, 2016


This two-day intermediate level course is designed to enhance a therapist’s fundamental understanding of surgical approaches for the cervical and lumbar spine in order to effectively develop progressive rehabilitation protocols. The key to successful post surgical rehabilitation is understanding the mechanism of injury, physiological healing time, mechanical changes and surgical techniques. This in-depth presentation prepares the medical professional to identify effective rehabilitation procedures for safe therapeutic management in order to achieve positive functional outcomes. A thorough understanding of the outcomes of surgery assists the therapist to develop the most effective rehab program. Emphasis is placed on understanding the neuromuscular effects of specific surgical procedures and developing protocols by utilizing neurological assessment tools, manual therapy techniques and exercise selection for the various post surgical conditions. Extensive hands-on lab time and protocol discussion will enable the therapist to immediately apply information in the clinical setting.
