Neuromuscular Rehabilitation – This a course that brings it all together. In this course attendees will be reminded of what they know and how they will see it in the real world. Animals with damaged tissue have difficulty retaining information and moving through the world in a bilateral fashion. This causes increased cortical stress responses, de-creasing metabolic rates, increasing systemic acidity. Attempts to gain motor function through exercise only perpetuate the disorder. Rehabilitation of the animal is more effective if we use the brain and spinal cord to help return the message to damaged tissues. In this lecture, professionals will learn how to identify and use many of the neural tracts with the motor cortex to improve function and healing by incorporating several different stimulatory methods. At the end of this course attendees will be able to apply different rehabilitative modalities to their animal patients to achieve greater response to the chiropractic adjustment.
