Learning outcomes

Fornire conoscenze di base riguardanti la riabilitazione neurologica e la neuropsicologia clinica, le strategie di trattamento riabilitativo delle neurolesioni e delle malattie neurodegenerative (basate anche su tecnologie innovative quali l’analisi del movimento e la robotica) nonché dei disordini cognitivi.

MODULO: RIABILITAZIONE NEUROLOGICA Acquisire gli elementi per la comprensione dell’impatto delle patologie neurologiche sulla vita di relazione e partecipazione della persona, dell’importanza e necessità di un approccio olistico e interdisciplinare del team. Conoscere le alterazioni funzionali correlate agli eventi morbosi del Sistema Nervoso, conoscere i concetti di Atto motorio, comportamento e il concetto di neuroplasticità come presupposto del recupero funzionale. Conoscere e correlare i segni e sintomi alle patologie del Sistema Nervoso Centrale e Sistema Nervoso Periferico.

MODULO: STRATEGIE AVANZATE IN FISIOTERAPIA NELLE NEUROLESIONI E NELLE MALATTIE NEURODEGENERATIVE Analizzare criticamente, sotto il profilo storico e scientifico, le diverse teorie della riabilitazione che hanno condotto a diversi approcci riabilitativi. Conoscere i principi alla base dell’esame neuroriabilitativo; correlare le conoscenze teoriche con i dati che emergono dall’osservazione e dalla valutazione a carico dei vari sistemi funzionali del paziente. Conoscere e saper utilizzare le metodologie per la valutazione del paziente con problematiche neurologiche. Saper condurre la valutazione fisioterapica e programmare il trattamento in malattie neurologiche (es. Malattia di Parkinson, SLA, Sclerosi Multipla …) integrando agli esercizi terapeutici specifici la riflessione su possibili modifiche dei fattori ambientali e su strategie specifiche di educazione terapeutica nelle situazioni persistenti o degenerative.

MODULO: METODOLOGIA DELLA FISIOTERAPIA NEI DISORDINI DELLE FUNZIONI COGNITIVE Conoscere la metodologia di valutazione e trattamento delle principali disfunzioni cognitive di interesse fisioterapico (es. eminattenzione, emisomatoagnosia, aprassie….) e saper costruire o adattare l’esercizio terapeutico. Saper valutare l’impatto delle alterazioni delle funzioni mentali (es. stato di vigilanza, attenzione, memoria, ….) nel processo fisioterapico e adattarlo conseguentemente. Conoscere gli aspetti generali delle possibili alterazioni del linguaggio e della comunicazione in ambito neurologico e realizzare una efficace integrazione con il logopedista.

MODULO: NEUROPSICOLOGIA CLINICA Permettere l'apprendimento dei principi di base dei processi cognitivi correlandoli alle loro basi neurali. In particolare il modulo fornirà l’opportunità di analizzare alcuni comportamenti alterati di pazienti affetti da lesioni del sistema nervoso centrale e correlarli ai dati di imaging.

MODULO: ROBOTICA E ANALISI DEL MOVIMENTO IN FISIOTERAPIA Fornire conoscenze riguardanti l’applicazione in ambito riabilitativo di tecnologie innovative basate su dispositivi elettromeccanici e robotici per l’arto superiore ed inferiore. Conoscere i principi di utilizzo ed impiego in ambito riabilitativo di dispositivi per l’analisi dei parametri spazio-temporali, cinetici e cinematici del movimento basati sull’utilizzo di polielettromiografia di superficie e motion capture.

MM: STRATEGIE AVANZATE IN FISIOTERAPIA NELLE NEUROLESIONI E NELLE MALATTIE NEURODEGENERATIVE
------------------------
• Starting from clinical signs and effects of movement of the 1°Mtn injury (paresis, contracture and muscle hyperactivity) you have to observe and evaluate how the patology interferes with the functional systems of the patient and identify the physiotherapy problems related to the neurological deficit. • The various theories about the neurological rehabilitation and the many methodological approaches (analytical-bodybuilder theory, neuromotor theory and cognitive theory ). • The origin, evolution and application of the most important methods in neuro-rehabilitation with a particular deepening of the Bobath method and Cognitive Therapeutic Excercise. • Hint to other methods: Brunnstrom, Vojta, Kabat and Constraint Induced Movement Therapy. • The Kabat concept and its elaboration: examples about neurokinetic facilitations. • The Bobath concept: the muscle tone , "pathological pattern" concept evolution, the equilibrium reactions and straightening, the balance, ; examples of: postural alignment, facilitations, problem solving. • Perfetti and the E.T.C.: valuation of the motor specific and the functions to recover in the Hemiplegic patient; rehabilitation hypotheses paid by the motility of the superior limb, trunk and inferior limb • Integration of the many operating ways considering the values and needs of the patient • The critical issues ongoing during the valuation and the rehabilitation treatment with particular attention to the issues related to: spasticity treatment, shoulder treatment of hemiplegic patient, treatment of patient with Pusher syndrome. • Integration of the guidelines in clinical reasoning
