New KC 2016 - Kinetic Control Education in Movement

29th January 2016

2016 sees the launch of our new modular system.

Our focus is delivering education to help your optimise your movement skills to allow your patients to move well and live well.

How your patients’ move influences their experience of everyday life, sometimes with significant consequences. Everyone moves differently and there is no right or wrong way. However, movement impairments can cause big problems that you’ll need to fix. This is why how you diagnose and manage each person is so important.

Our modular system:

Level 1: Movement Impairments – Movement Matters

So here we get you started on our functional movement courses. A series of two day course help you to put in place the practical application of Kinetic Control. This Level 1 introduction gives you the skills you need to find and analyse the movement dysfunctions / impairments that contribute to impaired function and pain.
This stage has 3 courses that can be done by anyone, anywhere, at any time. Each module focuses on a broad topic that will benefit all movement practitioners.
