EM145: Workshop: Treating the Trunk: luxury or necessity? The Bobathian point of view in functional re-education after central lesion

The Bobath concept is a problem solving approach aimed at evaluating and treating people with movement disorders, postural control and function, caused by a lesion of the central nervous system. This approach to adult rehabilitation with central neurological damage stems from the work of Berta and Karel Bobath and has evolved over the last 70 years. The rationale for its application is rooted in current neuroscientific knowledge related to motor control, motor learning, neural and muscular plasticity and current biomechanical knowledge. The aim of the workshop is to deepen the knowledge concerning the role of the trunk in the functional movement of the limbs and in the transfer of the body in space. A wide and recent literature has demonstrated the connection between central stability and functional locomotion / grasping so much to sustain that trunk specific test and outcome scales can be considered predictive and used for prognostic purpose in defining the potential for recovery of extended functions term. At the same time, the functional results of different therapeutic approaches more targeted to the stimulation of limbs such as CIMT or robotic therapy are described in the literature. Within the three training days we will try to understand how to interpret and integrate these apparently conflicting data for their correct application in the clinical setting using the Bobath Concept as the framework of reference.

Specific objectives:
- Promote the evidence based approach based on updated literature
- Update the neurophysiological knowledge to describe the central organization of postural control and biomechanical knowledge to describe the role of the trunk in the body's anti-gravity modulation - Refine the observation capacity of the postural components of the AVQ
- Implement specific treatment techniques for the trunk and improve manual skills
- Support the discussion and discussion between participants and teachers and train clinical reasoning
