As a physical therapist specializing in neurological rehabilitation at ICSCI, Dr. Wallace Ward is very knowledgeable on the practices and principles of Activity Based Restorative Therapy (ABRT). ABRT works toward the goal of increasing the mobility of a patient by activating the nervous system above and below the level of injury. This practice can provide input to the brain and nervous system, stimulating new connections and functions that can enhance a patient’s quality of life, even long after the onset of their injury. ABRT focuses therapies within five principles, including: functional electrical stimulation, task specific practice, massed practice, weight bearing, and locomotor training.
In support of these principles, Dr. Wallace Ward has advanced training in aquatic therapy, locomotor training, and robotic-assisted gait training.
