Teaching Developmental Theory / Science - Online Zoom Webinar

Typical and Atypical Motor Development
in the Light of the Neuronal Group Selection Theory

Sunday June 26th @ 9:00 am PST Two Hours

It is currently well known that spontaneous activity is a major characteristic of neural tissue. At early age the brain’s spontaneous activity is reflected in spontaneous movements. These movements drive development. 

In this lecture Dr. Mijna Hadders-Algra will first address the development of the human nervous system. The brain’s development is a complex and long-lasting process. This offers challenges for early detection of developmental disorders and opportunities for early intervention. 

Next, we will discuss typical and atypical motor development in the framework of the Neuronal Group Selection Theory. Key words are ‘variation’ and ‘adaptability’. Special attention will be paid to the development of postural control

The Robert Lardner - Complementary thoughts on Gait training and DNS

DATE & TIME TBD

Given the research on gait training and the progress in emphasis on motor control, there are some DNS principles that might be helpful in gait training and organizing exercises for patients with difficulties in gait and lower extremity function.

The goal rehabilitation is 2 pronged:

- To ensure access to adequate afferent quality
- Improve movement strategies through feedback and altered motor efference

From this standpoint, the incorporation of DNS principles can help to improve both aspects of rehabilitation as it can assist us in framing the rehabilitation process.

Dr. Donald Murphy - Clinical Reasoning in Spine Pain & High-Value Care

Author of nearly 100 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, international lecturer, and developer of the CRISP Protocols, "Dr. Donald Murphy" may as well replace "Chiropractic Clinical Reasoning" in the dictionary. There's simply no human on this planet better equipped to have this conversation than Dr. Donald Murphy.

Dr. Carlo Rinaudo - Vestibular Neuro-Rehabilitation for the Spine

In this presentation and following discussion, Dr. Carlo Rinaudo will introduce the central nervous system's role in scoliosis and spinal curvature.

Dr. Elif Turgut - Kinetic Chain Approach for the Overhead Athlete: Implications for Shoulder Rehabilitation

Sunday, June 6th, 10:00 AM P.S.T.

In this presentation and following conversation, Dr. Elif Turgut will provide a deeper understanding of the overhead athlete, the kinetic chain approach, and the application of the kinetic chain to assessment and management of the shoulder with relevant research findings.

Dr. Charlie Weingroff - Movement, Outcomes, Athlete/Patient Centred Ideologies with Other Random Thoughts

Monday, June 21st, 4:00 PM P.S.T.

We're gonna talk about movement. We're gonna talk about outcomes. We're gonna talk about athlete and patient-centered ideologies, and, other random stuff.

Dr. Richard Cohen - The Principles and Implications of Reflex Locomotion

Friday, July 16th, 4:00 PM P.S.T.

Reflex Locomotion, discovered by child neurologist Prof. Vaclav Vojta in the 20th century, is a reflex that evokes an involuntary postural stabilization and locomotor response. Our webinar will discuss Vojta's principles of movement development and the application of the therapeutic approach for neurological and orthopedic conditions.  We will discuss positions, stimulation zones, and scientific literature that supports and explains its applications.

Ben Cormack - Pain, Exercise, and the Individual

Wednesday, September 8th, 9:00 AM P.S.T.

Ben Cormack is a Physiotherapist and founder of Cor-Kinetic, an educational platform designed to deliver cutting edge education, rehabilitation & physical training to the health care and exercise communities. Ben is a popular international presenter who has delivered conferences presentations and courses all over the world.

The Cor-kinetic philosophy is based around an understanding of modern movement, pain, and neurosciences to give a person-centred approach to rehabilitation and physical training within a strong evidence-based framework. They have delivered courses in Europe, Asia, USA, and South America and present regularly at national and specialist subject conferences around the world.
