GB School of neuro rehab aiming to make neuro rehab simple starts “Neuro rehab Education series 2018”


gajanan 1

Do you think understanding neuro is difficult?

Do you think practising neuro rehab is more complicated and tiring?

DO you think it takes long time to show recovery in neurological cases?

Most of the student’s feel that neuro rehab is very difficult to understand because we can’t imagine and understand how neuro Physiology work? How does neuro recovery occurs? How to enhance and fasten neuro rehabilitation process?

Where as musculoskelatle rehab is we can see the changes in the range we can measure the changes in strength and function. But in neuro it is very difficult see and measure the changes. First of all  students don’t understand the neuro rehab approaches very, application of these in treatment is far fetched goal.

One day during my master training program, i asked the question to a very famous neurologist from Jahangir Hospital DR. N. R. Ichaporia.

dr-ichaporia-e1519502345171.jpg

 Why neuro rehab is do difficult? 

DR. Ichaporia said:

“Neuro rehab is not difficult, It is the way it is been taught makes is more difficult!”

This answer changed my mission of life. i understood that the training has to change. It has to change in such a way that it should become easy and simple for everyone to understand neuro rheab. Based on this incident with Dr. Ichaporia i have made my mission of life as

“Making neuro rehab Simple”….. Gajanan Bhelerao

GB school logo and mission

I have attended multiple workshop and course in neuro rehabilitation to understand it better in order make it simple. After completing multiple course and 15 years of extensive practice in neuro rehab and teaching for 11 years in physiotherapy college about neuro rehab, i have found methods of how to make neuro rehab simple to understand and practice.

Now i want to share my experience and knowledge all the budding therapist who aspire work in neuro rehabilitation.  So we formaed a organisation GB School of neuro rehab and Aquatic therapy for training of therapist and treatment of patients with neurological disorders.

With  aim of sharing our knowledge and empowering budding therapist we have started

Investment in Education about neuro rehab

To achieve this goal of my life i invested a lot in my education. I have attended multiple course by Dr. Asha Chitnis on NDT in Paediatrics.

After completing workshop with Asha Chitnis on NDT She advised me to complete your NDT certificae course. Fortunately NDT certificate course Paeds was organised in Mumbai in 2006 -2007. But i couldn’t attend that because i was going for my masters final exam. It was again organised in Pune in 2010. but unfortunately i couldn’t attend again because was busy organising the 49 Annual conference IAP  Pune as  joint organising secretory.

Then Asha Chitnis advised me to not do course in Paeds you do the course in Adult NDT . She helped to organise the course in 2014 in Pune.

NDT/BOBATH CERTIFICATE COURSE IN THE MANAGEMENT AND TREATMENT OF ADULTS WITH HEMIPLEGIA IN PUNE  INDIA 2014

The course was suppose to start on 27th January 2014 and two Intructors Cathy Hazard (Canada) and Nicky Schmidt(USA) were suppose to arrive on early morning 26th January 2014. Both of them didn’t knew that need to get Indian VISA to arrive in India. So landed at Mumbai International Airport But got stuck in Immigaration as they were not having Indian VISA. Because of 26th January security very tight and nothing could do to help them. Our course is starting next day, all 24 participant were arrived in Pune but now the instructors couldn’t clear the immigration. Fortunatly Asha chitnis was there with me to Pick them at airport. So immigration office called me and Asha talked with the immigration officer. Asha Advised both instructors to go back get Indian Visa and come back again in few days.

Cathy Hazzard CI NDT Adult.jpg Cathy HAzzard PT CI NDT, BSc,  MBA

So both instructors gone back to their country. Cathy Hazzard from Canada got the Indian Visa Soon and she was back to India in five days. Cathy was traveling contentiously to and fro for around 6-7 days from Canada to India to Canada and again to India. unfortunately instructor from USA couldn’t get Visa in time so she didn’t return back. So ASha Chitnis assisted Cathy Hazard during the course. At last our course started five days late.

NDT workshop changed our perspective of treatment neuro rehab. Then in 2015 i have completed my advance NDT course as well.
