Part of our Co-ordination Efficiency Series, this module is specifically designed to evaluate movement patterns to help change muscle function associated to pain, pathology and compromised function. This evaluation helps therapists towards establishing a more optimised movement system for their patients through observation and analysis of patterns of muscle synergies.
The main focus of this module is to explore functional activities and tasks in patients. Understanding muscle actions and observing synergist activation patterns can inform clinicians of movement patterns associated with pain and impaired function.
It supports all clinicians’ desired outcomes for their patients through the effective means of managing movement and alignment so individuals may pursue pain free lives.
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.
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)*
*Or the local dialect in the case of international courses
What will I learn?
Key learning outcomes are:
Display an understanding of the relationship between movement patterns, postural alignment and muscle synergies in functional tasks.
Demonstrate the ability to apply a muscle synergy classification model to multi-join movement challenges.
Demonstrate the ability to assess the efficiency of alignment and movement patterns so as to reduce pain, the impact of pathology and improve function.
Display an ability to classify individuals into relevant alignment and movement pattern subgroups for the low back, the hip, the neck and the shoulder.
Display an ability to deliver movement intervention strategies to minimise the negative causes or consequences of alignment change and inefficient movement patterns.
Identify how assessment, analysis and retraining of alignment and movement patterns can be integrated into their clinical practice.
