This webinar will advance your clinical practice for persons with neuropathy, from examination through intervention. Be prepared to be challenged in some of your own understandings and beliefs about the various forms of neuropathy, including those caused by or originating from diabetes, vitamin B12 deficiency, toxins, chemotherapy, and unknown causes, as well as from familial, compressive (stenosis), inflammatory, infectious, autoimmune, and traumatic causes and more. This presentation will discuss small and large fiber neuropathies with sensory, motor, and autonomic involvement.

Learning Objectives:
  • Determine five of the top eight conditions leading to neuropathy
  • Design an impairment-based and functionally based examination for persons with lower extremity neuropathy of any origin
  • Develop an evidence-based intervention program for clinical and home delivery that addresses the needs of persons with lower extremity neuropathy
  • Distinguish rehabilitation from compensation in the restoration of occupational performance and function from neuropathy

Chapters & Learning Objectives

1. Clinical Applications Within the Phenotypes of Neuropathy

This chapter will review the different categories of neuropathy, the specific conditions, and the rehabilitation implications for each.

2. Impairment-Based and Functional Examinations: LE Neuropathy

This chapter will detail the evidence-based approaches to neuropathy examination, with consideration for function (gait, balance) and impairment (strength, ROM, flexibility, endurance).

3. Rehabilitation of Balance in Neuropathy

This chapter will review the evidence for balance training and conditioning, at either the level of impairment or above it, in persons with neuropathy.

4. Rehabilitation of Fitness With Considerations of Dual-Task Tolerance and Motivation

This chapter will review the evidence for fitness training and conditioning, at either the level of impairment or above it, in persons with neuropathy. This will include considerations for dual-task capacity, self-efficacy, and motivation in the face of degenerative diseases.

5. Compensations and Modalities in Neuropathy Rehabilitation

This chapter will review the science behind modalities for function and pain in neuropathy, as well as compensations from assistive technology through assistive devices.

6. Case Studies and Videotape Examples

This chapter will include case examples, a summary of the course, and key takeaway points.

7. Question & Answer Session

This chapter is a viewer-submitted question and answer session, facilitated by Mike Studer.
