KC Course Principles
Our course structure, with a focus on movement control, is built on the following principles:
- The diagnosis, classification and motor control retraining of uncontrolled movement.
- Motor control training for Physical Therapists.
- Understanding the biomechanics of normal and abnormal function.
- Understanding tissue stress and pathology.
- Making the links between uncontrolled movement and symptoms, disability and recurrence.
- Clinical reasoning.
- Applying the latest research findings to clinical practice
- The development of rehabilitation principles and applying retraining strategies for the local and global muscle systems:
- Control of direction regain control of pain producing uncontrolled movement.
- Control of translation deep muscle control of inter-segmental motion (translation).
- Control of imbalance re-establish correct recruitment patterns between single joint stability muscles and multi-joint mobilisers.
- Understanding recruitment threshold - applying principles of neurophysiology to motor control retraining exercise planning and design.
- Reviewing muscle function based on the latest research and consideration of muscle action in terms of single joint function and multi-joint function.
- Motor control for low load postural problems.
- Applying high load training to strengthen and recover from from atrophy.
- Differentiating between motor control and strength.
