Dual Task Training in Stroke Rehabilitation

Video demonstration from Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA


After suffering a stroke, many emerge feeling trapped in a body that no longer works and fear the life they knew is gone...

Furthermore, standard treatment strategies end with persistent long-term deficits and very basic gross motor skills at best.

Your patient does not have to accept this fate... And with the correct skillset, neither should you!

Unfulfilled rehabilitation potential is one of the greatest losses a stroke patient may face. Learn from Mike Studer, PT, MHS, NCS, CEEAA, CWT, CSST, FAPTA, the importance of dual task training in moving your stroke rehab forward!
