Brief Description

This one-day workshop provides an opportunity for health care professionals to gain insight into managing the individual with contraversive pushing tendencies (“pusher syndrome”).  The individual who suffers from a stroke and has “pushing” tendencies presents with unique impairments that challenges health care professionals.  This workshop will present current theoretical evidence and practical NDT skills for participants to use when working with the individual who “pushes”.  The overall objective of this course is to enable participants to bring information back to their facility and apply it toward promoting more functional movement and achieving functional outcomes with their patients.

Upon completion of the course the participants will:

  • State the basic philosophy underlying the NDT approach to the treatment of adults with neurological dysfunction
  • Identify major impairments interfering with normal movement and function in the individual with stroke who has contraversive pushing tendencies.
  • Demonstrate basic handling skills to enhance patient’s functional movement as related to his/her functional goals including activities in sitting, standing and gait.
  • Demonstrate an increased repertoire of evaluation and treatment strategies for the individual with stroke who has contraversive pushing tendencies.
