LATEST BUZZ FROM KC

KC's new Movement Alignment & Coordination course at Derby Hospital in May

17th March 2016

Catch KCs movement wizard Mark Comerford at Derby Hospital on 23-24 May 2016 delivering the new Movement Alignment & Coordination module

Key Features

  • Low back, hip, neck and shoulder alignment is classified and analysed for its implications for posture and movement control
  • Strategies to correct or improve postural alignment are developed
  • A variety of common functional tasks are analysed with respect to the primary muscle groups involved in those tasks. Further detailed observation of the recruitment synergies between the one-joint stabiliser and multi-joint mobiliser synergists is analysed.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course the participant should be able to:
  • Display a good understanding of why movement matters to postural alignment and recruitment synergies in functional tasks
  • Demonstrate an understanding and ability to observe changes in functional movements that reflect changes in relative stiffness and relative flexibility
  • Display an ability to observe posture and classify individuals into a relevant alignment subgroups for the low back, the hip, the neck and the shoulder
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the implications of alignment classification to changes in muscle length and recruitment, to potential risk of pain and to movement health in general
  • Display an ability to discuss strategies and options to minimise or correct some of the negative causes or consequences of postural alignment change
  • Demonstrate the ability to observe function tasks or activities and analyse the pattern of synergist recruitment being used and make a judgement as to whether it is appropriate or aberrant.
  • Demonstrate the ability to devise a movement retraining strategy to change an aberrant pattern of recruitment into an appropriate pattern of recruitment depending on the task involved and the loading (non-fatiguing movement or fatiguing load) requirements of that task
