This was today (day 11) . The task was shaped to add a reach component

This was day 3. The task was designed to work movements required for brushing hair. It was tough work.

Agreed. It is more complicated but difficult to explain in a tweet. Happy to point you in the direction of useful resources about this process to better understanding

Thanks. This position was ten minutes within 30 hours of repetitive task practice. It’s good to add in postural challenges too. We hope to continue to progress in week three 👍

A woman who sustained a brain injury in a crash in which her friend lost their life, has said taking part in the city’s weekly parkrun makes her feel more like her old self.

More evidence the huge role physios need to play in management of long term conditions such as MS and PD. Lifelong access to physiotherapy is the answer not just reactive interventions when function deteriorates

Actually if you’re thinking it’s something to do with the Vojta method... I would say unlikely. We are following evidence based principles of CIMT here.

We chose this posture to challenge core, work shoulder in greater flexion, and to replicate a posture required for her job. Fascinated to know what else it does?

Google translate suggests you are questioning if we know how this works? We are reversing learned non-use and influencing cortical reorganisation. 😊

She is happy but wants to do better each time. It’s a difficult balance to keep the experience positive while also pushing to challenge the upper limb. As well as planning each 3 hour clinic session’s content we also have to be her motivator and support throughout the process

Her rest position for this task would have been difficult to explain to anyone who happened to pass by.. 😬😳

Hannah's shoulder has come on so well this week, we can already challenge her in prone

Peg task repeated today, shaped again to add in a high/low component and a trickier surface to grab them from

Yes, it provided support into supination and wrist extension so that we could expand the number of activities she could work at. Hopefully next week there won’t be as much need for the tape

We've got subjective (MAL and Dash) as well as objective. I'll do a summary next week 🙂
