Historical development of neurological physiotherapy

Multiple choice
1) Which of the following is false in terms of the characteristics of traditional methods? a) Uses isotonic movement, sometimes with resistance b) Focuses on the whole limb rather than joint c) Involved the teaching of compensatory strategies d) All he above 2) Which of the following is true in terms of the Alexander technique? a) The use of touch to facilitate a technique in a way that the patient is gently directly to make small changes in co-ordination and timing to ultimately modify the way a patient thinks about the movement. b) The use of touch to facilitate a technique in a way that the patient is gently directly to make small changes in co-ordination and timing to ultimately to encourage an adoption of useful and appropriate compensatory techniques. c) The use of touch to facilitate a technique in a way that the patient is forcefully directly to make small changes in co-ordination and timing to ultimately modify the way a patient thinks about the movement. d) The use of touch to facilitate a technique in a way that the patient is gently directly to make small changes in compensation and manipulation to ultimately modify the way a patient performs an action. 3) Which is false in terms of the feldenkrais technique? a) Is described as somatic education b) Involves the components of being ‘aware of a movement’ and ‘functional integration’. c) Involve the components of reducing compensatory strategies and movement synchronistic. d) All the above 4) Which is true regarding the steps to motor learning approaches a) Functional analysis b) Practise missing components c) Practice activity d) Transference of learning e) All the above

Short answer
1) List the characteristics of motor learning approaches. 2) List the characteristics of traditional neurological physio. 3) How do these traditional characteristics differ from the elements of modern neurological physiotherapy approaches?

Long answer
Compare the differences in motor learning approaches to neurophysiologic approaches.
