Learn how to harness higher order neurological systems and easily integrate with your current orthopaedic approach for pain and performance conditions. At some level, every orthopaedic issue is a neurological issue. Learn simple tools to assess the unique sensory presentations of your clients to combine and top-down and bottom-up approach to rehab. Understand how poor input via the sensory systems can contribute to pain and other protective responses. Learn manual techniques, sensory drills, and movement-based procedures to address the unique multi-sensory nature of your client complaints. Determine the starting point for a multi-sensory graded exposure rehab approach to ensure long-term changes in pain and performance.
As therapists, there much more we can do to facilitate change in pain and performance than just loading the proprioceptive system with manual therapy, and internal/external load. We can harness the nervous system, and identify higher order systems that are not accepting load well, and contributing to increased mechanical load placed on the proprioceptive system, expressed in the form of pain, excessive tension, and weakness. By identifying poor load absorption in the proprioceptive system, visual system, vestibular system, and other neurological systems that regulate pain, tone, and strength, we can facilitate much greater change in our clients.
The key is to make it simple enough so that our clients can understand the nature of our rehab. This is our main goal at IKN, to ensure our clients are active participants during the treatment process. By helping them understand that they are more than just muscles and joints, we can create a better environment for changes in pain and performance. Come and learn how to harness neurology for greater outcomes!
— Learn how to make pain science practical and allow clients to “feel” how quickly pain can alter movement
— Learn how to identify the neurological state of your client and determine how much load their nervous system can tolerate for maximal changes
— Learn breathing strategies to facilitate the most ideal environment before loading the systems
— How to “load” breathing and facilitate more neurological learning and carryover
— Learn Manual therapy & lymphatic stimulation techniques to improve cortical mapping and pain reduction
— Learn how to use Inter-limb neural coupling Loading strategies for pain relief and increased movement
— Learn how to assess and train the vestibular system to help with pain and performance
— Learn how to assess and train the visual system to help with pain and performance
— Learn how to integrate all the sensory systems to create optimal graded exposure strategies for clients
— Learn how the jaw impacts spinal and upper limb movement capacity & how to treat
— Learn neurological layering techniques with movement to facilitate more change with any pain or performance-related condition
— Learn brain mapping movement to improve engagement with mobility drills
3 reasons to take this course:
1. To harness neurological systems in a simple and practical manner to facilitate greater change with your current approach
2. Identify exactly what system requires more “load” to enhance rehabilitation outcomes
3. Truly integrate a multi-sensory rehab approach to ensure long-term changes in pain and performance

About the lecturer:
Dr. Ryan Foley earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy and Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences, Psychology, and Gerontology from Nazareth College of Rochester, New York.
After his 6 years in New York, he moved to Miami to work at a sports performance center, delivering treatment to professional athletes from teams such as the Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and also the U.S.A Olympic Sailing team. It was here where he learned advanced treatment techniques to improve pain and sports performance.
After his spell in Miami, Ryan moved to back to Manhattan, NY to begin working at a sports medicine & amp; rehabilitation Institute, specializing in helping individuals with pain and performance issues. Out of dissatisfaction with the conventional approach to helping people resolve pain and injuries, he moved back to Ireland and began studying applied functional neurology methods, specifically Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex, along with other applied neuroscience approaches to help people get out of pain and improve function. He now owns his own private practice – Evolve Physiotherapy.
