Host Jackie Loeshelle is joined by members of the Locomotion – Chronic CPG Knowledge Translation Task Force for a Part III discussion on the Locomotor CPG. In this episode, Dr. Carey Holleran and Dr. Maghan Bretz discuss the Intensity Matters Campaign, which provides clinicians with guidance on how to focus on intensity when providing intervention for improving locomotor function in individuals with chronic neurologic conditions (CVA, iSCI, and TBI). The Task Force has created guidelines that can be found on the ANPT website. This podcast episode will provide clinically applicable knowledge to implement intense and task-specific gait training into your practice.
