Clinical Judgement: Making The Best Clinical Decisions – Kinetic Control (KC)
DescriptionPart of our Masterclass Series, this module explores and explains: where to start and where not to start, what you can fast-track and what to hold back on, how to develop appropriate strategies to use movement to influence neurogenic pain.
The main focus of this course reviews the concepts of the uncontrolled movement theory, it uses patient demonstration to highlight how movement control assessment and rehabilitation compliments other therapeutic approaches.
This course details a logical clinical reasoning approach to integrate assessment and correction of dysfunction in the articular, myofascial and neural systems.
Who’s it for?Kinetic Control courses are designed for registered medical health professionals such as physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, podiatrists etc.
In exceptional circumstances experienced non-medical health professionals may be allowed to attend Kinetic Control courses but these participants MUST be able demonstrate that the course material is within their scope of practice.
If you are not sure if this course is right for you and want to check get in touch.
What’s involved?This module is delivered over three days (18 hours) during which learners are guided through the programme and complete practical assessments.
For added reassurance, each learner is assessed throughout the course using a range of practical demonstrations and learning checks designed to support your successful integration of the content into your clinical practice.
To ensure you get the most effective learning experience, learners must be physically able to participate as you will be required to participate in practical scenario-based training sessions.
- Learners must be at least 18 years old on the first day of the training
- Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2)*
- Certification fees
- Course material
What will I learn?Key learning outcomes are:
- Discuss 4 key features of patient’s presentation: Tissues / Structures; Movement Impairment; Pain mechanisms; Contextual factors.
- Discuss the differences in clinical presentations of dysfunction in different tissues; articular structures; myofascial tissues; connective tissues; neural tissues.
- Understand the development of Uncontrolled Movement (UCM) and analyse the relationship between restrictions and compensations.
- Assess for and develop strategies to manage different pain mechanisms.
- Identify clinical indicators for possible presence of sensitisation & neurogenic pain and discuss management options for issues of neuro-dynamic sensitivity.
- Understand and discuss how clinical presentations determine priorities in management strategies.
- Recognise the clinical indications and discuss management options for: low threshold training of the local system as a clinical priority, low thresholds training the global system as a clinical priority. Indications for high threshold training the global system as a clinical priority.
- Develop an understanding of using outcome measures and re-assessment tools to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions to manage symptoms, dysfunction, disability and demonstrate how these tools can help to guide the rate of progression of an individual patient through their rehab programme.
Suggested ProgressionThis course forms one part of our Muscle Synergy Series from here you can move onto the other two modules:
- Taking Clinical Movement Excellence into New Directions
- Myofascial Trigger Points for Movement Optimisation and Pain Management
- And more
