The KC Solution! Kinetic Control presents a fifteen day course to enable you to master the KC process. Full of new and up to date material, this course will enable you to confidently diagnose, classify and manage movement control impairments. It will also set you well on the road to becoming a Kinetic Control Movement Therapist. Learn from the latest research with the functional movement control specialists.

Course Outline

Contemporary research clearly demonstrates that subjects with pain present with aberrant movement patterns, and adopt patterns of movement that would usually be used for high load tasks for low load function.

This new course will help to help you to achieve a thorough understanding on the mechanisms of these aberrant patterns, how to identify them and how to manage them. 

This course aims to develop your knowledge of the examination, diagnosis and classification of motor control dysfunction and the management of uncontrolled movement.

KEY FEATURES

Course content will include:
  • The diagnosis, classification and motor control retraining of movement dysfunction at the lumbar spine, hip, cervical spine and shoulder girdle
  • A review of the biomechanics of normal function
  • A review of the biomechanics of abnormal function producing tissue stress & pathology
  • Making links between tests of abnormal movement and symptoms
  • A clinical reasoning framework to identify priorities for rehab, where to start retraining, and how to be very specific and effective in exercise prescription and individual retaining packages
  • A look at knowing which way and how fast to progress, and knowing how to tell when retraining has achieved an effective end goal independently of symptoms
  • Movement Health
  • Control of direction for diagnostic frameworks
  • Development of rehabilitation principles and application of retraining strategies for the local and global muscle systems
    • Control of direction
    • Control of translation
    • Control of imbalance – global stability control through range and global mobility extensibility
  • How to put the latest research findings into clinical practice
  • Understanding recruitment threshold – applying principles of neurophysiology to motor control retraining exercise planning and design
  • A review of muscle function based on the latest research and consideration of at muscle action in terms of single joint function and multi-joint function
Following this course the student will be able to:
  • Identify the real clinical priorities in patients with movement control impairments
  • Assess, diagnose and classify movement in terms of pain and dysfunction from a motor control and biomechanical perspective
  • Have available at their fingertips a large range of motor control and movement retraining strategies to establish optimal functional control
  • Use a clinical reasoning framework to prioritise the clinical decision-making challenges that movement therapists experience in contemporary clinical practice
  • Use fine-tuned observation and palpation skills enhanced by using imaging ultrasound and pressure biofeedback to give real-time feedback about recruitment and control of movement
  • Use taping techniques to support uncontrolled movement or facilitate motor relearning.
  • Develop an assessment framework that will provide a diagnosis of
    • dysfunction
    • site and direction of uncontrolled movement
    • uncontrolled translation
    • myofascial and articular restrictions
    • aberrant guarding responses
  • Make a diagnosis of pain-sensitive tissues
