Balance & Motor Control (B&MC) – theory & clinical reasoning (2-days)

B&MC blends together the best bits of movement neuroscience, neuroplasticity, motor control theory, musculoskeletal, vestibular and neuro-rehabilitation knowledge – and applies it to human balance! We know that balance is fundamental to human motor behaviour and performance. This unique course draws upon a diverse selection of information from neuroscientific and clinical evidence to provide very useful clues for any clinician working in any area of physical rehabilitation. Associate Professor James McLoughlin is passionate about providing practical information that is both relevant and entertaining. This theoretical & clinical reasoning course allows participants to explore a deeper level of knowledge on balance and motor control before further advancing their practice in many areas of physical rehabilitation.
