In this special 3-year anniversary episode of 4D, host Parm Padgett and DDSIG secretary and podcast editor Sara Zoeller dive into the world of neuro-rehab and the pet peeves that come along with it. From terminology to exercise intensity to balance, we hear from previous guests and board members about what they are itching to correct in neuro PT practice. Join us with special guests Anne Kloos, Jeannie Stephenson, Herb Karpatkin, Lori Quinn, Vanina Dal Bello-Hass, Judy Deutsch, Alicia Flach, Amy Yorke, and Julie Hershberg as they share their personal pet peeves when it comes to neuro rehabilitation.

Spreading the Evidence: Integrating Evidence in Practice

In this episode, physical therapist and clinician, Jonathan Kinzinger, shares his story of finding evidence that he could apply to practice. Resources such as the Clinical Practice Guidelines for the core outcome measures and locomotor training inspired him to change practice. He is now embarking on systematic change.

Stroke SIG: Episode 17

Host Dr. Jackie Loeshelle is joined by Dr. Evan Cohen and Dr. Mark Manago to discuss blood flow restriction training for patients with neurologic deficits. During the interview, Drs. Cohen and Manago discuss how blood flow restriction works physiologically and evidence on using this intervention for individuals with a variety of neurologic diagnoses. They discuss how fatigue is often a limiting factor of exercise (for both strengthening and aerobic training) with patient with neurologic conditions, and that the addition of blood flow restriction may allow patients to be able to work at a higher intensity when fatigue is a barrier.

DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Wearable Sensors for Balance and Mobility in Persons with Parkinson’s Disease: A Systematic Review- with Lindsay Fitchett 

In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Lindsay Fitchett talks to Chris Burke about her group’s systematic review of wearable sensors assessing balance and mobility in people with PD. They discuss themes from the review including differentiating PIGD and tremor-dominant subtypes, looking at fall risk, assessing movement strategies/transfers, and sensor-based interventions. They also discuss potential future avenues for sensors in rehab.

ANPT Inspirational Conversation with Dr. Richard Shields – short version

Dr. Shields was the Anne Shumway Cook Lecture Awardee for CSM 2021. His credentials: PT, PhD, FAPTA. In the interview he talks about his research in individuals with spinal cord injury including the management of hyperinsulinemia and neurogenic osteoporosis. He also shares information on epigenetics and the potential impact it could have on the future of physical therapy practice.

DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Differences in Spatiotemporal Gait Characteristics between Freezing of Gait Subtypes in Parkinson’s Disease – with Jason Longhurst

In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Jason Longhurst talks to Katy McGraw about his research on gait characteristics in people with PD. His research looks at data from people without freezing, people with freezing on initiation, and people with non-initiation-type freezing. He discusses the role of gait variability in clinical presentation and expands on how this research might inform PT intervention and make interventions more specific to patients with different presentations in the future.
