Target Audience: The goal of this program is to educate healthcare providers who manage patients with upper motor neuron syndrome/spasticity including, but not limited to, Neurologists, Physiatrists, Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists.

Needs Assessment: The purpose of this enduring material activity is to explain how patient outcomes can be improved in many cases with adjunctive physical and occupational therapy. There is lack of awareness among botulinum neurotoxin injectors concerning the added benefit of physical therapy and occupational therapy as follow-up to injection therapy for Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome/Adult Spasticity. Physicians, physical therapists and occupational therapists will be able to provide their patients with the accompanying DVD and printed materials. Please register to request these materials.

After completing this CME Activity, participants should be able to:

  • Assess patients with Adult Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome/Adult Spasticity to identify appropriate candidates for adjunctive physical/occupational therapy post-neurotoxin injection.
  • Recognize the importance of adjunctive physical/occupational therapy for Adult Upper Motor Neuron Syndrome/Adult Spasticity patients treated with BoNT for improved patient care.
  • Recall standardized physical/occupational therapy protocols to optimize patient outcome.
  • Instruct their patients on home exercise and home activity programs to provide the comprehensive follow-up needed in these cases.
