NET Courses aim to:
Enhance an individuals existing skills in the concept and application of detailed functional movement analysis, whilst improving patient handling skills in facilitating and guiding functional movement.
Provide a holistic movement paradigm which compliments and enhances existing clinical practice and introduce participants to the concept and application of this with reference to patients with altered tonal state as a result of neurological damage or deficit.
Introduce participants to the use of suspensions as an adjunct to the assessment and treatment of neurologically impaired patients
NET Basic will enable individuals to analyse and describe functional movement patterns and their effect in altering tonal deficit in neurologically impaired patients and will demonstrate enhanced patient handling skills in controlling and facilitating movement in lying, side-lying, and sitting and between each of these.
Integrate movement-based analysis and treatment into a paradigm which compliments and enhances existing clinical practice
Apply suspensions throughout any movement pattern in order to stimulate muscle activity and improve stability and co-ordinated control whilst evaluating the individual’s potential for recovery
NET can be successfully used in the Assessment and Treatment of Neurological conditions including:
Spinal Cord Injury
Gillian Barre Syndrome
Commonly, patients who have experienced NET techniques describe a feeling of “lightness” and “ease of movement” following treatment.
There is no boundary of length of time following diagnosis or onset of condition to achieving muscle activation and the onset of recovery.
Individuals have been truly shocked and amazed at the results that have been achieved using NET techniques despite having been told that no further recovery is likely or that they have “plateaued”.
The NET Basic course is most important in focussing and challenging the participant’s handling skills in order to understand when and where to introduce suspensions.
This enhances facilitator control and gives greater guidance in determining direction and progression during rehabilitation.
With these introductory techniques and the ability to suspend a patient it is then possible to meet and control the problems associated with upper limb spasticity or flaccidity and the challenges associated with the rehabilitation of Balance and Gait.
These topics are thus covered in subsequent NET courses.
