Exercise to Promote Neuroplasticity in a Neurological Population
Neuroplasticity is the basis of neurological rehab. This workshop does a deep dive on neuroplasticity, applying it to work Exercise Physiologists do in a neurological population. You will get the opportunity to apply these principles to neuro case studies and explore how these principles support exercise modalities such as e-stims, blood flow restriction, volume training, part practice and home exercise programs. By the end of the workshop you will feel confident that you are able to maximise neuroplasticity in your therapy and exercise sessions.
Presented by Cameron Hunter, AES AEP
Cameron has worked in the neurological rehabilitation field for the last 3 years, with particular focus on using innovative technology to achieve his client’s goals. Prior to this he was working for 4 years as an exercise scientist in rehabilitation. He discovered his passion for the neurological and disability fields while studying his degree and strives for providing the most up to date and evidence-based interventions.
Cameron has championed the use of blood flow restriction training with multiple neuro populations, particularly MND, MS, SCI and CP. He engages with a wide variety of training modalities, such as resistance training, hydrotherapy, cardiovascular, trike and bicycle, reaction and decision making, and wheelchair skills.
