LATEST BUZZ FROM KC

Mark Comerford & Sarah Mottram take popular KC courses to Derby this autumn

27th July 2016

Kinetic Control founding experts Mark Comerford and Sarah Mottram bring two of KC's most popular courses to Derby Hospital for NCORE this autumn - don't miss this opportunity to learn KC techniques from these leading movement health specialists.

On 27-28 September Sarah teaches the Level 2 course: 
L2 - MOVEMENT EFFICIENCY FOR LOW BACK AND HIP 

Introduction:
  • Optimising Movement Efficiency to Manage Recurrence and Improve Function
  • Movement is function: controlling movement through activities and sport is essential for optimum function. Movement control is dependent on CNS processing and current research demonstrates links between changes in the CNS and inefficient movement control.
  • Muscle synergy patterns influence our ability to control movement and alignment in functional activities and sport. Identifying aberrant patterns of muscle recruitment synergies is key for movement control assessment and retraining.
Course Aims:

This course will Help You:

  • Consider what matters for movement at the low back and hip including functional anatomy, recruitment and neuroscience
  • Assess for recruitment efficiency of the global stability muscles that control movement at the low back and hip
  • Understand the relationship between movement impairments and muscle efficiency
  • Develop practical skills targeting key muscle groups including the gluts, oblique abdominals, segmental back extensors and deep hip flexors
  • Match the level of retraining to the patient's abilities and goals and progress cognitive retraining into function
  • Assess for aberrant recruitment of the multi-joint muscle and exploring options to recover function
Learning Outcomes:

A large practical element to the course will help you gain skills that you can quickly implement in practice.

Who will Benefit:

This course is for all therapists including those dealing with musculoskeletal presentations, Neuro rehab, amputee rehab, Paediatrics.

Attendance certificate will be issued
CPD: 14 hours

On October 31 to 1 November Mark Comerford will be delivering: 
L3 - MYOFASCIAL TRIGGER POINTS FOR MOVEMENT OPTIMISATION AND PAIN

Introduction

Chronic pain is now recognised as being an extremely complex multifactorial process. Myofascial trigger point therapy can be used in the management of peripheral neurogenic pain. However, MTPs can also be used to optimise movement control. MTP treatment can be used to increase extensibility and decrease recruitment dominance within dysfunctional global mobility muscles. Myofascial trigger point treatment is also used to facilitate recruitment of the global stability muscles and recover more optimum synergistic patterns.

From a more traditional perspective this course also presents the application of myofascial trigger point management within complex neurogenic pain presentations. This course is orientated to a 'hands on' practical application of myofascial trigger point management.

Course Aims:

This course will Help You:

  • The biology of the Myofascial Trigger Point (MTP)
  • How to identify active or pain producing myofascial trigger points
  • How to manually treat active MTPs
  • How to make links between active trigger points and global muscle imbalance
  • The use of MTPs to 'down-regulate' and increase functional extensibility in overactive multi-joint mobiliser muscles
  • The use of MTPs to 'up-regulate' inhibited or elongated 1 joint stabiliser muscles to improve their stabiliser function
Learning Outcomes:

This fun and interactive course will help you to use myofascial trigger point therapy in the management of: movement control impairments, clinical regional pain scenarios and complex regional pain syndromes. Clinic ready tools for immediate integration into practice.
