Neurofunctional Model

Good Essays
A theory describes how and why events happen and how they are connected with each other. Theories bring together different information and help the therapist to be objective to determine which care plan would be the best. Theories are the groundwork for the development of a model. Models help to categorize how the therapist views and evaluates a client and how their surroundings can help or hinder them in their daily activities. Frame of reference directors and connects theories and turn them into practice. Frame of reference divides the body in 4 categorizes and 15 subcategorizes which guides the therapist to develop a specific treatment for the client’s disability or weakness. The therapist would use more than one category from frame of…show more content…
If there is any insufficiency in memory, paying attention and sorting out what someone said, is a sign that the function of the frontal lobe is not functioning right with the client’s daily functional abilities. The capacity to reacquire the adaptive outline of behavior can be interrupted if the cerebral cortex is damaged and the adaptive behavior is compromised. It depends on where and what degree of injury the cerebral cortex is on how human learn, to relearn new behavior the client must retrain only most deeply weakened behavior. Repeating of practical skills leads to adjustments of the former responses and switches them with the new and changed responses due to relearning skills. Plans for better Perceptive control can be developed from new and more precise style of simple cognitive performance. Learning of performance skills is enhanced by reinforcement, practicing and from task…show more content…
How to get the client to do their ADL’s, IADL’s, work, play and leisure’s in a way that works for them with their insufficiencies of their abilities. Biomechanics are working to get the strength, balance and endurance back by physical activities, where Neurofunctional approach is trying with cues to reestablishing behavior to help the clients with a routine similar or the same as before. Like putting toothpaste on the toothbrush before you start brushing your teeth.
In the field of geriatrics you could find both biomechanical and Neurofunctional approach since with age the person loses muscle strength, endurance and the ability to remember how to do something. The person might have a hip fracture and had to have surgery on it. In most cases after the surgery the patient is confused and needs to reestablished familiar behavior like when you get up in the morning brush your hair. The Biomechanical will teach how to get dressed and strengthen the
