Balance Training by ADL targets one of the most misunderstood aspects of therapy: BALANCE. Covering static, dynamic, and reactionary balance, this 6.5-hour course unpacks balance rehabilitation in a practical, clinically-relevant format. Beginning with a foundation in balance systems, assessments, and prescription parameters, this course continues to provide practical, hands-on learning for balance assessments, exercises, and gaming. Highlights include the following: new treatment strategies/exercises, “balance laws,” new equipment ideas,  exercise prescription parameters, and a wide-range of options for continually progressing and challenging balance. Help better prepare patients for the unexpected by attending Balance Training by ADL.
