What is Proprioceptive Rehab?

A  fully evidenced-based approach to restoring Balance, Proprioceptive awareness, vestibular sense, and motor programming while simultaneously reducing fear and restoring confidence. This is a revolutionary approach to balance and gait rehabilitation that relies on progressive balance challenges and functional activity training to improve locomotion and balance.

What does the course include?

  • More than 300 balance activities

  • Effective treatment for Certral Vertigo

  • Proven techniques to reduce Ataxia

  • Dramatically reduce fall risk

  • Improve gait in clients with stroke

  • Diagnose and treat common gait deviations

  • Functional task based-therapy

  • A systematic approach to balance and gait rehab

A unique approach

Proprioceptive training is a completely new way to approach balance training and fall-prevention. It is based on the concept of Progressive Balance Challenge as opposed to traditional strength training and walking. It involves providing increasingly difficult challenges to the client to increase their balance and coordination in the same way humans learn to balance in the first place.

 

Proprioceptive training involves hundreds of unique activities that allow the fastest improvement in walking, balance, and fall reduction.

What does Proprioceptive Rehab include?

Our system combines 6 different ​types of training that work simultaneously for maximum effectiveness

BALANCE TRAINING

SURFACE PERTURBATION

FOCUS SHIFT TRAINING

The body of research has conclusively shown, that the fastest way to improve and regain balance is with highly challenging balance activities. In the past, rehab centers and therapists relied on gait training and core strengthening to help clients improve their balance with little effect. Today, physical therapy schools now teach that functional training and progressive balance challenge are the most effective at leaving lasting changes in clients. But how is this accomplished? Our courses teach a methodical and systematic approach to restoring balance, one step at a time.

One of the most effective ways to restore a client’s ability to balance t is with activities simulating slipping and tripping, without the risk of injury. Learn how to use treadmills, varied surfaces, and specific activities to improve resistance to falls and improved ground reaction to challenge.

DUAL-TASK / MULTI-TASK

The goal of proprioceptive rehab is to restore our client's function to their pre-injury levels. To achieve this, clients must restore their motor skills to the automated level, where movement happens without conscious effort. One of the best ways to achieve this is by performing two tasks simultaneously. Balancing and tossing a ball simultaneously is one of the fastest ways to integrate and automate balance skills. Learn how to apply this to hundreds of balance activities to help your client reach their maximal recovery.

AFFECTED WEIGHT BEARING

An important concept of Proprioceptive rehab is that the only way to achieve recovery is to have the affected side be responsible for postural control. Learn hundreds of activities and exercises that allow the client to safely use their affected extremity to control balance and motion.

TARGET AQUISITION

Awareness of where your body and limbs are in space is a learned skill. It has been shown that it can be restored and improved through training.
