Neuro conditions

  1. Degenerative disease involving UMN and LMN
    Sx's: dysarthria dysphasia, muscle atrophy, fasciculations, spasticity, hyperreflexia, no sensory changes.
    • ALS: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
    • Lou gehrigs
  2. Inflammatory response affecting facial nerve (CN VII)
    Sx's: facial muscle weakness or paralysis, difficulty closing eye, mouth droops.
    Bell's Palsy
  3. Autoimmune polyneuropathy
    Sx's: symmetric motor paralysis, quickly developing muscular weakness progressing from lower extremity to UE and distal to proximal, possible respiratory failure.
    Guillain-Barré syndrome
  4. A demyelinating disease
    Can be mild with remissions, exacerbations, and progressive.
    Multiple Sclerosis
  5. Progressive disease resulting in decreased dopamine.
    Sx's: tremors, rigidity, fatigue, bradykinesia, festinating gait, flexed posture, masked face, memory loss.
    Parkinson's Disease
  6. Form of muscular dystrophy that may occur decades after initial episode.
    Sx's: new denervation, asymmetrical muscular weakness, myalgia, loss of function due to excess fatigue and decreased endurance.
    Post-polio syndrome
  7. This treatment strategy uses:

    -facilitation to elicit voluntary muscle contraction

    -inhibition to decrease excessive tone

    -specific handling of designated areas of the body to influence and facilitate posture, alignment, and control.

    C) bobath (NDT)
  8. This treatment uses stages of synergies in neurological rehab for hemiplegia:

    C) brunnstrom
  9. This treatment meathod consists of observation of fuctional performance, analysis of strategies used to accomplish tasks, and assessment of impairments. works to resolve impairments then implement compensatory strategies via plasticity, and retrain using functinal activities.

    D) motor control- a task oriented approach
  10. This approach is based on premise that stronger parts of the body are utilized to stimulate and strengthen the weaker parts. movement patterns follow diaganols or spirals where each possess a flexion or extension, or rotary component and are directed toward or away from midline.

    C) PNF
