Sensorimotor Control and Rehabilitation (SenMoCOR) of the Upper Quarter – Anchorage AK Jul 2022


Course Description

~15 Contact Hours

This is a course that is designed to introduce a systematic, comprehensive, and evidence-based sensorimotor control program aimed at functional recovery for patients suffering from upper quarter pain, dysfunction, and or performance deficits. The course will examine state of the art sensorimotor control and learning principles to address patients’ specific upper extremity control needs in a diagnosis-inclusive fashion. A progressive approach to a functional examination will be presented that can serve as a segue to designing and implementing a progress a program that addresses locomotor and somatosensory fundamental reactivation. Corrective strategies will be introduced that correspond with functional examination findings. The instructor will connect these corrective strategies to fundamental performance, agility training and advancement into functional recovery. Functional management strategies will be related to clinical examination findings and manual therapy treatment. Various different strategies will be discussed relevant to each patient’s clinical presentation.

Objectives and Goals

At the conclusion of this course, the learner will be able to:

• 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.

This course will consist of live lecture and hands-on lab demonstration modeling techniques over the course of 2 days.

There will be a maximum of 16:1 student to instructor ratio.
