The Movement Solution Two:
Moving Further

BOOK NOW

This 5 day Kinetic Control course takes The Movement Solution further into understanding how to manage multi-joint dysfunctions.

The course will focus on evaluating and managing patients with concurrent thoracic, lumbar, sacro-iliac joint and hip pain - problem patients! Become an expert clinician.

This course is designed for Kinetic Control Movement Therapists and experienced therapists in the assessment and retraining of uncontrolled movement.

Course Outline

A Masterclass with Mark Comerford exploring: the indepth assessment and diagnosis of uncontrolled movement, the clinical application and modification of retraining strategies and how these fit with other aspects of neuromusculoskeletal rehabilitation.

The course explores how to best manage mechanical pain and dysfunction when neurogenic pain is significant clinical feature.

Key Features

  • Clinical Masterclass
  • Detailed evaluation, mobilisation and movement control retraining of the Thoracic Spine and Ribcage
  • Advanced evaluation, mobilisation and movement control retraining of  complex Sacro-iliac joint conditions

Learning Outcomes

Following the course the student will be able to:

  • Perform a systematic movement assessment to make diagnoses of Uncontrolled Movement in the thoracic spine, lumbar spine, pelvic joints and the hip
  • Understand the links between restrictions of motion, movement compensation strategies and the development of Uncontrolled Movement
  • Discuss the relationship between Uncontrolled Movement and the development of pain
  • Determine priorities of management in multi joint dysfunction
  • Recognise the clinical features that differentiate mechanical / infammatory neuromusculo-skeletal pain and neurogenic pain
  • Understand the differences in clinical presentation of peripheral neurogenic pain mechanisms and centerally mediated neurogenic pain
  • Discuss strategies to manage central neurogenic pain, peripheral neurogenic pain and mechanical / inflammatory neuromusculoskelatal pain
  • Demonstrate the ability to assess for pain related low threshold recruitment changes in local and global muscles function
  • Use evidenced based literature to support the choice to retraining strategies to correct pain related recruitment changes
  • Discuss the clinical reasoning process behind the choice of movement retraining strategies to manage complex multi-joint pain
  • Use clinical reasoning processes  to evaluate and plan the management of complex musculoskeletal pain
