Why: “We’ve created a complete guide to dystonia evaluation and treatment that goes beyond the basics and addresses:
- The essential sensory testing you need to be doing (with video demonstrations) with every patient with dystonia
- How to classify sensory disorders effectively and translate them into effective treatment techniques
- Which outcome measures best reveal deficits associated with dystonia
- How to perform and document the JPE and subjective visual vertical (SVV) testing
- The subjective portion of your examination (including patient handouts to set them up for success)
- Components of an effective movement analysis (so you don’t waste your time on tests that don’t matter)
- How to integrate Learning Based Sensorimotor Techniques (LBSMT) into your patient’s treatment plan
- How to use a multitude of treatment techniques including:
- sensory tricks,
- postural re-edu,
- mirror therapy,
- weighted vests,
- manual techniques,
- …and more.
With each module of the course, you’ll have an interactive reflection sheet as well as two interactive patient cases to practice your new skills. ”

I have no doubt that this course will be fantastic. I’m usually rather cautious about online courses, because I’ve done some that were SO BAD! The Neurocollaborative is awesome though, so I know they’ll have put together something amazing for this difficult topic. This hasn’t been approved for CCU credit yet, but just look at it! As long the Neurocollaborative folks have some “objectives” written in there somewhere, it would be a shoo-in. And it’s not like the approval fees would put the cost of the course beyond reach either. Just do it.
