With Postural Neurology you will finally master the neurology of the Posture System.
Postural Neurology will multiply your level of Clinical Certainty so you can get Better Results than ever before! Stop Guessing and Start Knowing
Postural Neurology is a 30-hour online course to learn the neurology of the Posture System, Brain Based Posture Analysis, and Brain Based Postural Correction.
This course consists of five modules teaching students modern concepts of neurology as they relate to posture and human function. Participants finish the course with implementable brain based postural analysis and correction protocols.
In the first module participants are introduced to Postural Neurology and discover the important role that posture played in human evolution. They learn the role of upright, bipedal posture and its impact on brain function. Then they discover the impact of technology on postural de-evolution and Digital Dementia. These concepts are relevant to modern day patients, and will only continue to get worse and affect more people in the coming years.
This module also introduces the concepts of Brain Lateralization distinguishing key characteristics of the right and left hemispheres of the brain, the Pain Neuromatrix Theory that pain is in the brain and to overcome pain you must reduce the amount of stress to the body, and the connection of the Posture System with emotions and neuroendocrine function. Posture and emotions affect hormonal release associated with the neuroendocrine system.
Module 1 sets the scene for Postural Neurology and introduces students to key concepts of the importance of posture and neurologic function. This module explains the “why” or the relevancy of Postural Neurology as it pertains to society.
Module 2 is “Neurology 101.” This module provides important insight of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Participants learn the role of important neurologic anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous systems, such as the lobes of the brain, the basal ganglia, the thalamus, and the peripheral Posture System.
Within this module participants gain confidence in understanding neurology. It is put together in a way that makes sense and that highlights the most important aspects of the neuroanatomy that is indirectly related to posture. Reviews are provided with each aspect of the neurologic system covered in “Neurology 101” with an emphasis of how each part of the neurologic system relates to posture.
The third module is of utmost importance to all posture professionals. Entitled “Neurology of the Posture System,” this module takes a deep dive into understanding the exact neurologic systems that contribute to upright postural design and dynamic postural stabilization.
This module specifically covers the motor cortex, the sensory cortex, the cerebellum, the visual system, the vestibular system, the spinal tracts, and the ponto-medullary reticular formation. For each piece of anatomy a description of the structure and function is provided with a breakdown of how each aspect contributes to upright posture and the connection with other aspects of the neurology controlling the Posture System.
Module 3 is the foundation for Modules 4 and 5, which are the clinical application modules. In Module 3 students make important connections of nervous system function and postural design. This module “ties it all together” by drawing direct correlations of neurologic function and postural design. The neuro-circuitry of upright and dynamic posture become clear in a concise and easy to understand manner.
Module 4 is all about clinical application! In this module students learn how to perform a complete Brain Based Posture Analysis to localize the Origin of Distortion within the Posture System. This evaluation comprehensively analyzes function of each component of the neurology contributing to postural stabilization and balance. Plus, participants learn how to perform a neurologic evaluation and posture analysis to determine the precise level of Neural Capacity that the patient presents with.
In addition to learning the Brain Based Posture Analysis to determine the Origin of Distortion and level of Neural Capacity on the first visit and follow up examinations, Module 4 covers the Neuro Scan. The Neuro Scan is utilized on each treatment visit to analyze brain function in relation to the Posture System in 3 minutes of less!
The Neuro Scan shows you exactly what the patient presents with on each visit to personalize treatment protocols that are highly effective and patient-specific. Health care professionals and patients can see instant pre and post changes with the Neuro Scan. This ensures the clinician that their treatment protocol was effective and demonstrates to the patient immediate neurologic changes on each visit.
Module 5 is full of clinical treatment protocols. In Module 4 students learn how to identify where the dysfunction is present within the neurology of the Posture System. Once the Origin of Distortion is identified with the Brain Based Posture Analysis and the Neuro Scan, then participants learn specific Brain Based Postural Rehabilitation treatment protocols to make neuroplastic changes of the Posture System.
Brain Based Posture Rehabilitation is based on the “Eyes – Spine – Vestibular” model of correction. Visual and eye movement training improves postural orientation and head posture, spinal alignment is for optimal sensorimotor integration among the sensory and motor cortices for proper movement patterns, and vestibular rehabilitation is for upright postural extension and improved balance and equilibrium.
Health care professionals learn “Manipulation – Movement – Stimulation” protocols to target the correction of the Origins of Distortion among the neurology of the Posture System. Plus, an explanation with examples is provided of how to create treatment plans that stimulate neuroplasticity for long-term postural correction improvements.
At the end of Module 5 implementation success strategies are provided showing participants how they can implement Postural Neurology in any office space regardless of physical size and the amount of staff members they have. Implementation is the final component of Module 5 to help students successfully implement their high level of knowledge and clinical application obtained from the Postural Neurology course.
Upon successful completion of the Postural Neurology course, the health care professional will obtain a certification from the American Posture Institute and the official title of “Certified Postural Neurologist” (CPN).
Certification requirements include completion of each module, a passing grade on each of the quizzes (one quiz per module), and a passing grade on the final examination. The final examination is comprehensive to demonstrate understanding of the neurology of the Posture System and competency of Brain Based Posture Analyses and Brain Based Postural Correction treatment application.
Postural Neurology is a 100% online course, meaning it can be completed from anywhere that has internet connection. This course is self-paced allowing participants to learn at their own speed within a time schedule that is appropriate for their needs. Their progress is tracked online and they have lifetime access to the course material to refer back to videos if necessary and to have direct access to any course updates.
After enrolling in the course the student will receive a unique user name and password to login to their “My Posture Courses” course room area. From here the student has instructions of how to navigate the course room, access to their bonus materials, access to their workbooks to download for taking notes with each module, all of the teaching videos within each module, and access to the quizzes and final examination.
The price of the Postural Neurology course is valued at $4500. With Open Enrollment, students can register at the discounted rate of $1997, plus they are eligible to bonuses valued at more than $7000. Payment plans are also available to meet the needs of all students. This is a minimal investment for the return on patient results and practice growth.
