A wide range of treatment techniques and approaches are utilised in neurological rehabilitation. Many of these come from quite different philosophical backgrounds. Research to support the different approaches varies widely, with a wealth of scientific evidence supporting the use of some techniques while other approaches are only supported by anecdotal evidence. In this course we will explore specific therapeutic interventions that are currently utilised in the treatment and management of traumatic brain injury and the evidence base behind each.


This course aims to ensure comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the range of therapeutic interventions available to you as a physiotherapist for treating individuals following traumatic brain injury.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Overview of Therapeutic Interventions
  2. Respiratory Management
  3. Contracture Management
  4. Falls
  5. Physical Activity

An extremely interesting course. I would recommend it! It has certainly helped the way I consider my HEPs and my approach to clients that may sometimes be non-compliant.

This course is magnificent and inspiring to any neurological physiotherapist who at times may have been feeling like they weren't doing enough for their clients. It has taught me a lot on how to better manage these types of patients in all stages in rehabilitation.
