Managing Movement: Impairments Of The Lower Leg – Kinetic Control (KC)
DescriptionPart of our Masterclass Series, this module details a comprehensive clinical framework of movement assessment and retraining to tackle both common and not so common presentations of the knee, ankle and foot.
The main focus of this course is to supply the ‘hands on’ skills to use movement as the tool of assessment and retraining to manage leg, thigh, patella-femoral, shin pain and foot pain.
This course develops skills of movement evaluations, looking at the co-ordination patterns and muscle recruitment strategies that represent the building blocks of the full gait cycle.
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 two days (12 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:
- Show an understanding of the different phases of gait including single and double leg support, weight transfer over the foot and the sagittal and rotational components.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the presence of movement control impairments during gait.
- Explain the relationship between the development of uncontrolled movement and the presence of a number of factors such as restriction, pain and previous injury.
- Demonstrate an ability to deliver and evaluate the results of cognitive movement control tests of the lower leg, ankle and foot and identify the site and direction of uncontrolled.
- Demonstrate an ability to deliver a management process for each movement control impairment to include retraining synergies, co-ordination and restrictions.
- Demonstrate an ability to connect specific movement control impairments to clinical scenarios and presentation.
