Balance & Motor Control (B&MC) courses

B&MC Advanced 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 advanced clinical reasoning for clinicians working in any area neuro & vestibular rehabilitation. Associate Professor James McLoughlin is passionate about providing practical information that is both relevant and entertaining. This advanced clinical reasoning course allows participants to explore a deeper level of knowledge on balance and motor control to develop rehabilitation plans for complex cases in areas of vestibular & neurological rehabilitation. The course includes practical demonstrations, assessments & plenty++ of treatment ideas!

We have  developed some new ‘Practical courses’. These practical courses allow an opportunity to develop and practice evidence-based treatment techniques, run through prescription of exercises including full rehab plans and share practical tips. It’s a festival of ideas & it’s fun!
