Host a 2 Day Live Course

Description

This two-day course explores the interrelationship of anatomy, biomechanics and neurophysiology for the neuromusculoskeletal system. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of neuromotor regulation with identification of faulty movement patterns in both the upper and lower quarters. The course emphasizes the use of specific home exercises to compliment manual therapy for acute and chronic musculoskeletal dysfunction. Joint mobilization, manual stretching, self-stretching exercises and neuromotor retraining exercises are demonstrated and practiced by the participants.

Objectives

  1. To understand the functional and anatomical connections of the upper and lower quarter musculature to the proximal trunk and pelvis.
  2. To understand the concept of neuromuscular imbalances of high tone and low tone/inhibition as contributors to chronic musculoskeletal dysfunction.
  3. To be able to identify faulty movement patterns in the lower and upper quarter.
  4. To be able to interpret and plan a treatment strategy to correct faulty movement patterns in the upper and lower quarter using manual therapy and specific exercises.
  5. To be able to instruct patients in specific exercises to refine neuromotor control in both the upper and lower quarter.
