Dystonia Mini-Course

The PT & OT's guide to the most effective and up-to-date evaluation and treatment strategies for clients diagnosed with any form of Dystonia.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify common sensory, motor control, autonomic and lifestyle deficits in clients with dystonia
  • Design a comprehensive and evidence based treatment program based on assessment findings

  • 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)
