This program aims to teach the participants proper handling and management of the upper and lower quadrants of adults with neurological disorders through different motor control and biomechanical strategies. This will be done through the findings recorded during assessing the tonal differences and providing a basic review of different neurological disorders and the underlying neuroanatomical processes.

The program will focus on the most popular challenging findings with a solution based on both research and practical evidence. Management based on both neurophysiology and biomechanics is the main basic key for the proper long-term functional goals to maintain the patients’ well-being.

The participants at the end of the course will understand how to integrate the basic clinical findings with the rehabilitation protocols set and the clinical outcome measured on the baseline.


Block One


Manual Guidelines, Exercise Retraining and Clinical Approaches


By Dr. Dania Sh.  Farid


A- Online Modules (3 Hours)


Module 1

  • Basic review of the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology.

  • Integrating the systems controlling normal movement in clinical practice.

Module 2

- Discuss the pathophysiology and clinical concepts of different neurological diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems such as:

  • Stroke

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinsonism

  • Peripheral neural disorders

Module 3

  • Selecting and using outcome measures in the neurological practice.

  • Review of the literature about the concept of treatment of adults with neurological disorders.

B- Face-to-Face Teaching (27 hours)


Day 1

  • Define motor control and its implementation in neurological practice.

  • Implement motor learning in clinical practice.

  • Define the concept of movement selectivity and movement synergies.

  • Learn to analyze the tonal differences for high and low-toned patients.

  • Introduce the systems controlling normal movement.

  • Apply practical hands-on strategies for the central systems.

Day 2

  • Introduce the main systems that control the posture and different movements.

  • Justify the clinical importance of the neural plasticity.

  • Discuss the maladaptive forms of plasticity.

  • Learn the proper documentation by detecting the short and the long-term goals.

  • Apply practical hands-on strategies for postural transitions.

Day 3

  • Description of strategies for the locomotion

  • Practical hands-on strategies of locomotion.

C- Practical Labs.


Day 1

  • Movement selectivity of the lower quadrant.

  • Facilitator techniques to normalize the movement and the sensations to the lower quadrant.

  • Assessing the seated and the standing balance.

  • Targeting the central patterns to normalize the tone in a functional task like (sitting to standing and vice versa).

  • Using the automatic postural responses in tonal management.

  • Targeting different dysfunctions in the balance (static, reactive, and proactive states).

Day 2

  • Movement Selectivity of the upper quadrant

  • Facilitator techniques to normalize the movement and the sensations to the upper quadrant.

  • Postural transitions and changes in lying to sitting and vice versa.

  • Targeting the core stabilizers (deep neck, abdominals, pelvic floor, and breathing strategies).

  • Targeting the spastic and flaccid upper limb.

Day 3

  • Key point strategies of loaded transitions.

  • Assessment and treating problems in locomotion as different gait deviations.

  • Targeting different functional tasks (Goal Oriented Approaches).
