When retraining balance, gait, and ADLs, progress is often impeded by deficits that don’t respond to strength and balance interventions due to malalignment of the pelvis and trunk. This recording brings the trunk to the forefront of neurological recovery, showing you how to achieve faster and more predictable functional gains using the latest research and interventions to restore pelvic/trunk alignment and control. Through pictures, videos, and active demonstrations, you’ll learn a whole-body approach to restoring human movement with geriatric and neurological patients of any age, including low-level patients.

The Role of the Trunk in Basic Functional Task Completion
The Connection Between Trunk Motions & Tasks
- The differences between upper and lower trunk motions
- Upper and lower trunk motion demonstration
Interventions & Application Strategies
- Case study: functional task success is limited by lack of adequate trunk control.
- Develop treatment interventions related to restoration of trunk motion and control
- Develop interventions to address commonly noted trunk motion limitations
- Discuss progression toward functional task success.
