Thank You to All That Participated

Syn.ap.tic’s first annual Neuro Run 2015 was a huge success! In celebrating the spirit of those who use our services, and in creating more awareness for neuro rehabilitation, we had a fantastic day with all of our participants and volunteers out at Fish Creek Provincial Park.

Everyone pushed through the incredible heat to complete the course, and was rewarded with delicious burgers and ice cream following the race. Complimentary massages also rounded out the day for our participants as they took in the amazing musical talent of the Rondel Roberts Band as well as Bob Glover’s Barbershop Quartet

Over 125 people braved the elements to help raise nearly $15,000!! We thank each and every person who was involved in the event – in any way. It was an amazing success that would not have been possible without all of the support we had!

We are excited to grow this event each year, and we look forward to seeing you at Syn.ap.tic’s Neuro Run 2016 next year!!

Syn.ap.tic and PWR!Moves

About PWR!Moves

Recent research in neuro science demonstrate exercise and learning approaches that promote aerobics and skill acquisition may protect vulnerable neurons, repair damaged circuits, and optimize function in persons with Parkinson disease (PD).

Dr. Becky Farley is a physical therapist, neuroscientist and Parkinson exercise specialist who developed PWR! Moves to directly target foundational skills shown by research to become impaired in PD and that interfere with everyday mobility. The PWR! Moves program identifies WHAT to do and HOW to do the exercises in order to maximize the neuroplastic components of the therapy program.

Syn.ap.tic has certified PWR!Moves Therapists who have the skills and knowledge to teach an evidenced based neuro-specific approach in a small group setting or on an individual basis.

Why PWR!Moves

PWR!Moves™ optimize brain health and learning, and to better address all the motor, cognitive, and emotional symptoms of PD.

PWR!Moves™ retrain skilled movement and raise your awareness of what optimal movement feels like, so that you recognize when to correct your smaller, slower and less coordinated movements.

PWR!Moves™ target the symptoms of PD that lead to the loss of skilled movements. They are ALWAYS performed with HIGH EFFORT for large amplitude FUNctional movement. You will learn how to use these foundational PWR!Moves™ exercises to target each symptom that interferes with your everyday movement – rigidity, bradykinesia, incoordination, and automaticity.

PWR!Moves specifically target the following motor and non-motor symptoms of PD in the following way.

Although the program was design for the Parkinson’s population, the principals of neuro protection, neuro repair and neuroplasticity in exercise would apply to other neurological conditions.

The program is most appropriate for people with the following:

  • People with a diagnosis of a neurological condition. It does not matter how recent or long ago the diagnosis was made.

  • People who prefer a small group setting of 4-8 participants.

  • People who have a concurrent health concern ie. Knee pain, back issues, hearing or visual issues and need more individualized attention.

  • People with or without significant presenting neurological symptoms, but want to minimize progression of symptoms.

  • People who want a specialized neuro approach.

Syn.ap.tic has certified PWR!Moves Therapists who have the skills and knowledge to teach an evidenced based neuro-specific approach in a small group setting or on an individual basis.

After an assessment has been completed by a Syn.ap.tic therapist, participants will be placed into the appropriate session and therapy can begin immediately.

Participants will commit to a 10 session package ($12/class). Syn.ap.tic will be offering classes 2 times a week on an ongoing basis.

Imagine waking up from a deep sleep to find out that you had missed your 21st birthday, you were unable to breath on your own, and you couldn't spell your name, and were paralyzed from the shoulders down. That was 10 years ago.
