How Becoming Certified in Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) Has Changed My Practice As A Physical
This is an introduction to a series of blogs related to this topic. Over the next 22 weeks, we shall explore various areas that this training has influenced in my practice. NDT has improved my outlook for the recovery of patients with neurological injury, guided my interventions, and opened my mind to not only intricate but a global view of the patient as a whole.
The titles of the series (in no particular order) include by are not limited to: Speaking Volumes Without Words
Listening Is Not Limited To The Ears
Discovering The Investigator Within Me
Family Matters: The Strength of a Support System
Periodic Re-assessment and Intervention Throughout the Lifespan (influenced by Shirley Sahmann PT, PhD, FAPTA)
Performing Familiar Tasks (neurologically familiar) Without Use of Assistive Devices
How I Learned To View Gait Differently
The Struggle Can Be Real: Finding Those Who Speak The Same Clinical Language
Applying Skills Throughout the Lifespan 0-100+years.
At some point, I will cover the impact of the "Top 10 Considerations" as stated by Kris Gellert, OTRL/L, C/NDT; Monica Diamond PT, MS, NCS, C/NDT; Takashi Misuda PT, DPT, C/NDT in their article "Challenges and Opportunities: Using the NDT Framework for Patients with Severe Involvement" on my practice.
I look forward to sharing this information with you all and hope that my journey may impact you as well. Feel free to ask any questions or make any comments about the topics after posting.
